How do cats urinate?

The urinary system in cats is pretty much like that in humans. When ready to urinate, the cat's brain signals him to get up and go to the litter box or area of loose dirt. Both male and female cats "squat" to urinate. The male's penis extends a little out just before he urinates. Girl kitties just 'go'. When done, girl or boy cats scratch at the litter or dirt to cover the odor of their wastes.Interesting fact: Many cats will not have a bowel movement in the same litter box where they urinate.

They don't; a cat that has never been outdoors is quite happy with a litter box, so long as it is kept reasonably clean (scoop it daily). A cat that has access to the outdoors will urinate outdoors because it uses the scent of its urine to mark its territory and warn other cats away.

Why do cats urinate on personal positions and not in their clean litter box?

Cats "mark" their territory, especially where they smell other cats. For example, under a window inside where a stranger cat sleeps outside. They mark when they smell other males or stranger cats outside their clan. Cats can also urinate in the house if their litter box is not clean, or if they have a UTI.
