I've had him for a year now, but in these past weeks sometimes when I hold him or when he comes to sit on my feet, he leaves the place really smelly and it kinda smells like urine or when they rub their butt on something

He may be scent marking. Does he have a friend he lives with?

Please also add your location to your profile - state or county will do. And :wel:
