Female Cats Not Peeing in Litter Box Since New Kitten?

We have two female cats ages, 3.5 years and 15 years. We have introduced a male kitten in the last 6 weeks. He is a rescue that we have been fostering since he was 7 weeks old. We kept him in his own room especially at night for the first 3 weeks and slowly introduced him to our two cats. 2.5 weeks ago we gave him full access to the house without human supervision or intervention.

We have a RoboKitty Litter box. It basically automatically cleans itself. He has been 95% great about potty training. He has had a few peeing accidents especially in one specific corner of our living room. We have blocked the area off and have tried to be vigilant about getting him to litterbox and that has been successful. However, we have now noticed that our two female cats are pointedly going pee outside when we let them out for their supervised time in our back yard. Is this a sign of stress? How should I remedy this? Should I get a second Robokitty litterbox? Has anyone had success with Feliway cat diffusers? I am seeking tried and true methods.

I'm not sure I understand the problem.

Your female cats are peeing outside. But are they peeing anywhere they shouldn't indoors?

For three cats you should have at least two litter boxes.

This may be why they choose to go elsewhere.

Stress is guaranteed with a new kitten, so yes stress is normal. I recommend you get at least one new litter box, preferably two. I wouldn't worry about the cats going outside, and things will settle down with time. Good luck.

Its natural for a cat to go to the bathroom outside. Litter boxes are something humans created for the humans convenience, not the cats. To a cat, going outside is the most natural thing.
