Do you have a kitty litter pan inside. If so, and she doesn't use it, she may have a urinary problem and must be seen by a Veternarian.

Make sure your cat doesn't have a physical problem like the first post suggests. An indoor/outdoor cat needs a litter box in the house. Going out before you go to bed doesn't guarantee that your cat is using the bathroom at that time. We all need to go in the middle of the night sometimes. If you don't have an indoor litter box, provide one! Make the spot inside the house that she has been using inaccessible. Clean the place she has been using with an appropriate cleaner (carpet or floor cleaner). The smell will disappear over time if the cat stops using that spot as her litter box.

Also, the cat, even a female, although this is worse with males, may be marking the house with its scent. There may be something scarey outside, like a dog or another cat that threatens your cat, and makes it want to mark its own territory with its scent. Use something with a citrus odor to clean the spot where the cat is peeing, to discourage reuse of this spot. Provide a CLEAN litterbox with good cat litter, as some cats are fussy about the type of thing they want to dig in and they won't want to use the litter box if it is stinky. You may need to move the cat litterbox into a more accessable spot; old cats, or very young cats sometimes won't use a litter box if it is too far away -- like in the remote corner of the basement. Or maybe there is some smelly thing where the litterbox is that the cat dislikes -- chlorine bleach smell, fuel oil or gasoline smells (lke in a furnace room or garage), different cleaners.
