Get him checked out because he could have a urinary problem. Does he cry when he tries to pee? If so, that can be a sign. The toilet trainin could have been a bit of an issue too. Also, is the litter box in a comfortable, private place? Some cats really hate to go where it feels too public. If he isn't altered that could be an issue too.

As far as the odor problem, there is a product you can get at feed stores and pet stores that uses oxygenation to remove odor and it is a natural product. I'm blanking on the name and it's a spray, you can ask the employees at the store about it. If I remember it I'll post it here.

Perfect answer, Rohvannyn. It is important to get a urinalysis done as soon as possible. And, if he is straining and crying a lot- you have to be concerned about possible urinary crystal/stone formation and potential blockage. Get it checked out asap! Good luck!
