I know a couple people who have cats both male and female that pee in the house, on clothes, the floor, anywhere.
I adopted a mentally unstable cat from the SPCA who hung himself (somehow with a 20 foot leash) 2 days after adopting him. Its been a month and Im thinking about getting another cat (with a harness this time) But I WILL NOT have a cat that pees anywhere other than its litter box. My cat did go in the litter box but else where also.
Cats instinctively use the litter box. When you get your next cat, just show him/her where the box is, make sure you get a good litter like Fresh Step and you'll be all set. A cat peeing else where just means there are either health problems involved or behavioral issues related or caused by external factors such as stress from kids, a new animal, moving, another cat roaming around, or you or anyone in the house experiencing hormonal changes , for instance, you getting pregnant.
