4 Month Old Kitten Stopped Peeing in Litter Box?

I have a 4 month old male kitten. He was using the litter box fine ever since I got him when he was 8 weeks old. Now he has been peeing everywhere. Especially in my vents and that's no fun place to have it. I can't get rid of the smell, I change the litter box often, but all he does is use it to poop and sometimes pee. Is there anything anyone can help me with?

I'd see about switching litter box areas, if that fails, change litter brands, if that fails go to the vet-- might have a minor urinary infection.

Male cats reach sexual maturity any time from 4 to 10 months. If you boy isnt neutered, that may be a factor. If he is neutered I would check for a urinary tract infection or crystals in his urine. There is a special diet for crystals in the urine. Pay close attention to this as it can cause a sudden fatal blockage in male cats. Without veterinary intervention they can die within 24 hours. Either one can make urination painful and cause him to begin avoiding the litter box. Dont wait, see your vet, you dont want that to become a habit.

Because he is approaching sexual maturity, he may be marking his territory. Even if he is neutered, he will be upset if he sees other male cats wandering through his yard. Some male cats will mark when this happens. If you have frequent cat visitors outside block your cats view of the places they visit. It helps. If they are spraying your patio doors or windows wash it away with an enzyme cleaner. I hear you about the heat registers. I once had a male cat spray in my toaster. Dont forget your sense of humor.

Your cat may not like the litter. It may irritate its paws. Switch litter.
