Some cats lose sphincter control as they age, and while this usually means they randomly dribble urine, or else don't realize they have to pee until it's too late and they can't make it to the litter box, I'll bet stress-induced urinary incontinence also occurs. Kind of like old people that urinate when they cough or sneeze or laugh. Not sure how that would be fixed beyond just making sure Forest is as stress-free as possible. I'd be cautious about trying meds because cats are super-sensitive to them and other health problems may result.
