if this problem is behavioral rather than a physical problem which it probably is it is called Middening.

It is used by a cat as form of communication and is usally only used in extreme cses i.e when the cat feels particualy threatened or nervous about something whcih has happened.

the idea is that it si both a visual and sensory communication which is designed to one stake their claim on the home and 2 to haelp make the cat feel more secure in their home.

To explain the problem further and to give you a suggestion on how to try and help your cat please see my web page about this issue here
