Kodi once peed on our bed, but I think I know why. He doesn't usually sleep with us, he sleeps in his crate and ex-pen down stairs, where he has a litter box available at all times. But I often let him snuggle in bed while I read in the evening before I take him down to his bed.
Our bed is very high, and he can't get up on it by himself, though he can jump off it. This one time, my DH was away over night, and I fell asleep with Kodi on the bed. sometime during the night, he peed on the corner of the bed, as far away from me as he could get. I think he was afraid that if he got off the bed, he couldn't get back up, and he didn't know what to do when he couldn't get to his litter box.
If we were going to have him sleep with us regularly, I'd make sure he had a set of steps to get on and off the bed, and a litter box in the room that he could get to easily.
Other than that, we have no problems with him in the house, but he does have two litter boxes available at all times, one in his ex-pen in the family room (which is open during the day) and one in the kitchen. Even so, he'd really rather go outside if he has the option, and HATES having to poop in the house.
