Cats can urinate outside the litter box for various reasons. One, she may have a medical condition. If you rule out stressors, then seek a Vet's opinion. Another is stress. If she is stressed due to the death of her owner, she might do this for awhile. Have you changed to non-perfumed litter? Perfumed litter is not tolerated well by some cats. One other thing, have you tried the closed in type versus the open type? My cat likes the scratch her litter all over the place, so I got her a closed in type where she has to go through the door to potty. Now, I have very little litter all over the place and she enjoys being able to hide out in the litter box while going potty. It is also important to keep the litter box clean. Good luck!
