First of all you need to take the cat to the vet to see if there is an underlying medical problem such as a urinary infection.

If all seems to be clear on the health front, then the problem is behavioral. Ineed, the cat may be marking your things because she feels like you are her property! You will need to take steps to retrain the cat to the box. Here is a webpage with more help on this subject: Feline Behavior

Meantime you need to thouroughly deodorize wherever the cat has been peeing. Petastic is highly recommended, as is Nature's Own.

Check into using Feliway, a spray that mimics the happy scent cats leave when they rub their check against something. You can get it from a pet supply store or from Cat Faeries at http://www.catfaeries.com
If you visit the website, you will see a phone number that you can call and for a fee discuss your cat's problems with someone. The person who does this is very knowlegeable and it may be worth the $$ for you.

Finally, if all else fails, ask your vet about using an antianxiety medication such as Buspar or Prozac. These very often work, however the decision to prescribe them will rest solely with your veterinarian who will be able to monitor the dosage and side effects.

Smile, it will make them wonder what you are up to!
