Because you will want to rule out other medical problems for you cat. And if you cat is not peeing at all, this is a sign that crystals or stones may have blocked the cat and is a medical emergency. So, please watch for that.
In addition I'd like to share this information with you as well.
Here are some options that you can try at home if not done already:
Clean all inappropriate sites with an enzymatic cleaner. Use a citrus deodorant spray or double-sided tape to discourage the cat from visiting problem areas.
(click here for information on the best I have found)
You can consider adding a litterbox in the house (in general when there are issues such as this, the recommendation is to have 1 more litterbox than the number of cats in the house) An example is 3 cats = 4 litterboxes.
You can also add different types of litter in the house (clumping vs non clumping, scented vs unscented)
You can also place the carpet runner you use for desk chairs upside down so the little plastic spikes are facing up - in the area that they urinate - cats do not like to walk on this and will then avoid this area - hoping to use the litterbox.
Aluminum foil is another product they do not like to walk on an can be placed in areas of elimination.
There is also a product, Feliway - which emits a hormone/phermone to reduce stress to help in behavioral situations just like this!

- Removing the covers of litterboxes so they are more open
- I have even had owners that have purchses storage containes, such as rubbermaid containers, not made for litter but are MUCH larger than cat litterboxes to give them a large area.
- Placing the litterboxes in areas of less traffic in the house to give them more of a private area to urinate (and defecate)
If the urination is marking behavior, and your cat is not neutered, you will want to have him neutered. This behavior is NORMAL in a non-neutered male. And can happen in neutered males and spayed females too.
IF that doesn't help you will want to have a full exam with blood work and urine tests done. Sometimes a behavior is caused by a deeper medical problem that might not be apparent on the surface.
And, one more for good measure :
I hope this information helps!
