    Clean the litter box. Maybe the stray went poo in his box and so he does not want to use it for fear the stray will be upset about it and fight him. Check your house to make sure the stray cat did not leave a mess somewhere, and the odor is telling your cat he can use that to relieve himself too. If so you will need to clean the mess before your cat will return to the box. Lastly, you could try retraining your cat. Put him in a small room with just his food and his litter box, and don't let him have the run of the house until he starts using his box again.

    It sounds like your cat is annoyed that the other cat was in his turf - but it could also be a urinary infection and the timing just happened this way. Try cleaning anything the other kitty used with white vinegar or bleach. Especially the litter box. If you cat still doesn't use the litter box, please get him to the Vet for a Check Up. Best of Luck
