He is almost a year old, is acting normal and is producing urine so there is no signs of blockages. He is having issues using the litter box and has urinated in the strangest places like on the couch and bed. He has even urinated on me. I became concerned after noticing the soap sud substance in his urine after he used the litter box. Please help, what could be the issue?

Hello and thank you for the pictures.  I think that you need to see a vet.  Your emergency vets may triage the situation for you over the phone to help to decide a reasonable timescale.   I'm not sure what is happening with the urine in the picture - it may simply have made bubbles, or may be highly proteinacious etc - but the signs that you are describing sound like cystitis, which often has behavioural / stress related aspects to it.  Cystitis is worth paying attention to for its own sake, as it can progress to some serious conditions, including a blocked bladder.   Your vet may well want to check a fresh sample (eg as collected in a urine tray without any litter, so that the wee remains sloshing about).   Best of luck and please do let us know how you get on.
