The cat may be wary of going out due to strange smells etc outside. It is probably also not advisable to let them out too soon as if they are spooked for some reason they may take off and not know where to return to. Place a number of litter trays in the house and keep them clean. In a few weeks let the cats out under supervision and hopefully the inappropriate voiding will end.
