Sorry about the peeing problem. One of my three babies does it too. I have to be careful not to leave any clothes on the bed because he is likely to bless them. I haven't figured out why he does it. I have noticed if i put
his bed (a large gray thing made from the "purr pad" stuff) he is not as likelly to do it. I guess he doesn't like to pee where his favorite bed is. But I have to keep the doors closed to the other bedrooms or I am likely to find he has been there.
I have learned over the years, that getting a cat back on a litter box is a challenge. I have done all the things possible and still not gotten them to go back. My mother has one like that. In her case, however, I think it is sinility (not of my Mom but of the cat!). I think Kitty Blue is just old and senile.
I have often found taking the errant cat to the litter box personally mad standing there while they do their "job" and praising them a LOT for doing their thing in the right place, does a lot to encourage them to go back there. I haven't done it, but perhaps a treat after seeing that they have done it right, would also help encourage proper behavior. Haven't tried it though.
I think bed peeing is a protest of some kind. Your cat may be unhappy that you aren't there so he/she is getting back at you.

You need to give the bedding a thorough soaking with an enzymatic cleaner (like Nature's Miracle), then run it through the wash a whole bunch of times. Bleach it if possible. If you rule out health problems but your cat is still using the bed as the bathroom, you will probably have to throw out the bed linens and start with new ones.
If her urine had any contact with the mattress cover or with the mattress, you'll have to treat those, too. I am well aware of how expensive mattresses are, so I'm not recommending getting a new one, but you should treat the spot with the enzymatic cleaner, then turn over the mattress. Get a new mattress pad that has a rubber lining so that if she urinates there again, it won't soak through to the mattress.
