Customer Question

My 30 month old cat has begun urinating just outside the litter box. No new litter, same location of box, same food, same other cats in husehold. I've been ill for about a month so I'm alternately away most of the day and at home all day. She's eating and drinking normally. Since she does this in front of me, I think she is asking for help. I've put a pheromone diffuser near the litter box. Please help
