Cat urinating on our bedding and wife's clothing

Our 7 year old female is just urinating on our bedding and my wife's clothes if left on the edge of the bed.
She does go to the litter box for her main duties, it's just urinating that's the problem. We do have 2 other house cats with no issues, 1 older male, 1 younger female.
Our cats do not go outside. I have 3 litter boxes. I've been using the same litter for several years.My thoughts:
I'm sorry to hear that your cat is having this problem. You didn't mention whether or not she has recently been to the vet with this problem in mind.
I would suspect a health issue, such as a urinary tract problem of some kind (inflammation, infection, crystals, etc.). This is often the case when a cat uses the box otherwise.
I would suggest placing a call to your vet to tackle this specific problem.
If your vet finds no medical problem, I would consider what changes may have occured in the house or in her life just prior to this problem starting.
I would also do whatever I could to reduce her stress level and make life as easy as possible for her.
I hope that helps and please keep us informed on her progress.
