Welcome aboard! Have you ruled out medical issues? Most cats dont start urinating outside the box unless they are trying to tell you something? The other thing is the vocalization. I had a pretty vocal boy but in the end I think he was trying to tell me something was up?
Please have a thorugh vet check and rule that out first. Maybe a little extra pplay time to make him tired and that may help with the scratching too! I am sure others will have a suggesiton on the scratching issue...Would love to see some pics of your gang!

"UNTIL ONE HAS LOVED AN ANIMAL, PART OF THEIR SOUL REMAINS UNAWAKENED"
He is your friend, your partner, your defender, your dog. You are his life, his love, his leader. He will be yours, faithful and true, to the last beat of his heart. You owe it to him to be worthy of such devotion.
