I took in one of my stray cats who I been taking care of since a kitten. She was getting along good with my other cats up until this year. Now she mostly hides all day under my couch and she won't go in the litter box anymore. She uses the bath tub as a litter box. Lol. I can say she literally goes to the bathroom. Can't understand her behavior lately.

Welcome to TCS!
Is she sharing a litterbox with a lot of cats? I've had a situation where my cats were happy to share, but then wouldn't and one did what yours is doing.. went in the shower bay. It's funny.. as though they know it can be washed away. Can you try putting a litterbox where only she can use it? Is she both weeing and pooing in the bath?
Has anything else changed? Is there a chance there is a cat picking on her? Are all your cats spayed/neutered?
The other thing to consider with changes in urination is a UTI, so if you feel there's discomfort then a vet visit would be a good thing. A general check-up wouldn't go astray to make sure there's nothing else amiss.
