    If your kitty is marking his territory, you will notice "spray marks" on the walls and at the baseboards around your apartment. Even neutered cats will spray--and it's common in both males and females. If he's actually peeing, you'll notice round puddles of urine, not necessarily at the baseboards but possibly in the middle of the floor. Try cleaning up the stains with an enzymatic cleaner such as Nature's Miracle or Simple Solution, which are two of the best cleaners for urine stains and are available at pet stores. You need to destroy the odor of his urine because that's what's attracting him back to the site. If he's stopped using his litter box, you may want to call your vet to see if they want to test him for a urinary tract infection.
