Why would a litter trained cat suddenly begin to use the house as his litter box?


This did not just start. He's now been doing this for a little while. One vet I asked seemed to think it was stress. Someone else I spoke to thought it was for attention. I admit he is the most left out of the mix of the 4 I have, but I have lately been making more efforts to make sure he gets his time with mommy (me) too, and now, he gets time with me twice a day. Yet he poops in front of the litter box, and will pee elsewhere in a corner of the house. How do I stop this behavior?
