they also make this thing like a glade plug-in that puts out an odorless scent they can smell to help calm them and supposedly it helps. ive never tried it but its called feliway.
Feliway Spray For Cats
some people really believe in it but we havent had it get so bad that we need to try it. some cats are just so picky, they dont want used furniture that other cats have been on, or sweaty gym clothes on the floor, whatever.

Make sure it's not a UTI, so a quick trip to the vet should be looked at. Or make sure it's not something else that is underlying condition.
Try changing the litter type... if the litter is scented, try unscented. Or try something like Daily news (Paper pellets).
The areas that were peed on have to be cleaned up super well. If the scent is there, they may continue to pee there. Though if you can't smell it, doesn't mean the cat doesn't.
Keep everything put away. Close doors to keep the cat out.

If he gets in the habit of doing this, he'll become what is often referred to as a dirty cat and they won't be able to break him of it. They really should talk to a vet, who would be able to tell them if it is medical and sometimes they will prescribe a prescription to help calm the cat. Cats are extremely sensitive to changes in their environments.

FYI, the feliway also helps w/ kitty stress if you are moving, have a new baby/dog/etc or have lots of holiday company...I mention because stress can bring on bladder infections.
Wish I could add more insight to the problem, but everyone already took my best vet tech answers...you BDW girls are just too smart. :-)
