I too had a similar problem with my cat. Personally, I would suggest placing a litter pan in each room and periodically, putting the cat in there after meals so he/she can smell it. Also, make sure you clean the litter everyday. Cats hate a messy litter box. Another idea is to experiment with the brand of litter- cats can be picky.
One other reason why your cat might be going in the house and not in its box is it might have a urinary tract infection (UTI). When a cat has a UTI, it hurts to pee (and sometimes poop), but it doesn't understand it's a medical issue - it just thinks it hurts to pee where it is peeing now, so it tries other "softer" places.
Also, is your cat spayed/neutered? If not, it might be spraying to mark its territory. Getting it fixed should help solve the problem, though for some male cats, not entirely (once a male cat learns how to spray, they still sometimes do it, even after being fixed).
--If you aren't cleaning out the litter box often cats will go the bathroom in the house. By preventing cats from going where they aren't suppose to go make sure the litter box is always clean for them. Or, try having two litter boxes for the cat. --If the cat is filling up the litter box quickly and going in the house all the time, you should take the cat to the vet. The vet may have explanations on why the cat is going to the bathroom all the time. Personally my cat would have pee accidents every once in a while and it was because of the medicine he was on (to prevent Urinary track infections), so he couldn't control it sometimes.
You can train the cat to use the litterbox if you bring it to it often when it is a kitten. Also they will go to the bathroom anywhere they can hid it. They will go the the bathroom in laundry too. Spraying is different from going to the bathroom. So if you have a male cat it could be spraying to mark its territory.
OK. i have a cat with the same problem many of my friends think its because my cat is not spade/neutered so if it is not spade or neutered get it done. It could also be that you are cleaning the litter pan too much... i hope i helped.. I also have a cat like that. It could be because of food allergies, or if you have another cat, it could be an issue about dominance. (My cat is both. It's a hassle but we love her.)
That task is going to be pretty hard, but not impossible. I'm sure you've heard the saying 'You can't teach a dog new tricks' explaining how it's hard to break habits. With some work and dedication you can break this one. Keep the litter box in one place, so the cat always knows where it is and doesn't get confused. Place the cat in the litter box like you would do a kitten. I assume the cat is messing in the house or yard. Pick up all the feces and place it in the litter box, to associate the litter box with going to the bathroom. *Do not pick up the feces, show it to the cat, and scold him/her for messing in the house. The cat will associate that going to the bathroom anywhere is bad.
