Cats/2yr old male cat urinating


My 2 year old cat is well bathroom trained. I had him since he was a kitten and he would always use the litter box. I live in an apartment and recently, i found him urinating downstairs in the basement and in the house. Sometimes, he would also rub his body against the wall. I'm wondering why he does this and how i can prevent him from urinating all over the place?
         THANK YOU.

this sort of behaviour is a scenting process which can be brought on by many things, too many for me to outline here. Please can I ask that you read my page about this problem, it also gives some ideas as to how you can help the situation stop.  here is the page /cat-urine.html

best wishes Kate
