Today, I learned why my bathroom has a horrible, seemingly irremovable stench. My cat doesn't squat to pee like a normal cat. She stands up, peeing over the side of the litter tray all over the wall and floor, which are now a permanent yellow tinge. FML

Yah, that's called spraying. Is your cat fixed? If not, this could be why. Also, this could be a sign of a medical issue such as a Urinary Tract Infection.

You need to get your cat fixed if it isn't, and see a vet.

First, your cat may be a boy, they tend to do this more often. Second, get it fixed if it's not. Third, have the vet run a profile for a urinary tract infection. Fourth, get a litter box with a hood on it. Fifth, wash the walls. Try Greased Lightning, I know it works well on dog pee-you can get it cheaply at dollar stores. Sixth, don't just paint over it...it will still stink.

Perhaps the cat was already box trained when they got it? I get most of my pets from the shelter and they are always already trained. One of my cats was previously a stray who wasn't trained and that was a problem because we never did manage to get her trained, but she ended up dying due to a medical condition that the vet told us 'is not really a big deal', but before she died she had kittens and we trained them when they were little before we gave them away.

move its litter box then make sure it goes there - you could put it just outside or something and install a catflap if you don't have one. if you've got an apartment without an outside then add a plastic bucket to catch the pee - maybe one of those paint buckets for when painters use a roller brush?

Apparently you know nothing about cats. A normal, neutered/spayed cat typically squats to pee and take a dump. I've had both male and female cats, and they all squatted. Some cats that are allowed both outdoors and indoors do sometimes learn from other cats to spray, despite being fixed.
