When my cat is stressed he refuses the litter box! I always know this because it will be when he is meeting new people or men in particular. I have found that reducing his stress levels in other ways has very much helped, such as trying to slowly introduce him to newer people for a short period of time. He also gets stressed when I am out of the house for long periods (a night or two), however, it is hard because sometimes this is something that is out of my control. I just try to keep his litter box as clean as possible to reduce aversion, and when I am out I will get people, whom he knows very well, to check in and scoop his litter for me and I find that this really imrpoves.
