@ashleyc Neutering would be a good start
Be sure to tell vet No Ketamine anesthesia

How old is he ? Is it brand new behavior ?
Be sure the vet rules out any urinrary tract infections
Does he make frequent trips to the litter box? With little or no output ?

Is there a female outside ?

be sure to use w good enzyme cleaner
Like ant icky poo unscented
Sold online various places


Some members have used kitty panties with intact males

We adopted a 2 yr old. His owner said he never urinated outside his liter box with her, so it seemed a new home, sharing our home with our dog, all lead to it. We got him neutered. The spraying did not stop immediately. It took about a month after neutering for him to mostly stop, and then he would on a rare occasion, until it eventually stopped all together. You must use a special spray on anything he urinates on or he will continue to repeat in the same area. We used icky poo. You wipe down the spot with no cleaner, then spray the icky poo and let dry. We repeated spraying/letting dry the area several times as it seemed that is what was needed to eliminate the smell completely.
