Hi Maliah, I recommend that you take him into see a veterinarian. Not using the litter box can be a behavioral issue but often there is an underlying medical or physical issue present as well. The underlying issues can include a urinary tract infection, pain, arthritis, or a more serious underlying medical issue. Your vet can talk to you more about the cause of this behavior in your cat after they have examined him. They may recommend some lab tests to help diagnose or rule out certain diseases.
