Cat Peeing on Sofa

We've had this cat for a while and no problem. Recently though she started to come downstairs and I noticed pee smell on my sofa. She has stayed upstairs since we've had her. I did put a litter box on both floors, but obviously she didn't use it. What do I do from here?

Use Nok-Out on the sofa, making sure you saturate the fabric and the stuffing in the cushions. She has marked her territory. Cats like to be high up, so invest in a cat tower so she can feel in control.

She may dislike her litter boxes. Many cats prefer an uncovered litter box in a semi-private area. In a covered box they may feel they are going to be "jhumped" by something.

Can the cat see into the yard from downstairs? are there stray cats coming by? Sometimes cats can see a stray and mark their territory because they're insecure.

Try closing the blinds and put a tall cat tree in a corner not close to a window.
