:o Hmm, well that is a problem. What is going on in your lives right now? Did you move, change her litter, get a new cat, new dog? There could be a number of things that would cause this problem. Let us know what things may have changed in your life and a little more about the situation and we can probably give you some pointers.

Usually, when a cat is eliminating in inappropriate areas, it's a health issue, and the cat should see the vet.  When a cat has a urinary tract infection, it's painful to urinate, and they associate that pain with the litter box, and will then stop using it.  The best bet is to get the cat to the vet, and get her treated if it is a urinary tract infection.   If it isn't, then you can work on the different behavioural issues that can also cause inappropriate urination.

I agree with the others, it definately sounds like a urinary tract infection. Some cats also will not tolerate a litter box that is not cleaned regularly and they will start going elsewhere. You can check on that too and make sure your sister cleans the litter box every day or every other day.
