Default Cat peeing outside box

I have a 14 year old male cat that pees outside the litter box every few
days. I have three boxes and I keep them cleaned often. I think he's
having neurological issues, but perhaps it's something else.
I plan on taking him to the Vet in a few days.
I thought I'd get some feedback from others here first before the visit.
This way I can enter the Vet office armed with proper questions.

What have others experienced in this situation?

Have you tried moving the box slightly....?

I have all outside cats. But they are getting old, and they stay inside most
of the time, and never leave the property even when they do go outside. they
like to use the cqat box. I moved the ct box gradually outside, so the cats
would have to go through the cat door to the back porch in order to use it.
This geatly improved the smell inside the house, as well as making the
occasional "miss" much less important.

That's funny and a good idea, but won't work in my area. I can't let
them roam outside, even in my fenced-in yard, without me being around
to keep an eye on things. Too bad because when Nipsy poops it does
tend to stink up the room for a bit.

I had a friend who built a, "cateo" for his cats, which he screened in so
they could go outside without getting away. You could build a small one out
of 1 x 2's and screening, and put it right outside a cat door cut into one
of your outside doors. That way, the cats could go outside without getting
away. Cat doors come with a sliding barrier that seals them off when you
don't want the cats to use them, so when the door is not in use, it can
still be a normal people door with the barrier in place. My cats love being
outside, een if they are only a few feet from the front door, and sometimes
sleep on the front doormat, or in the garage.
