The cat is 4 years old and for the most part is well trained when it comes to the litter box, but about once every week he will do his business either on the floor of the living room – right across his litter box, or next to the front door. I always make sure his litter box is clean, so I don’t see any reason for him to do his business elsewhere. How do I train him to only do his business in the litter box and not on the floor? Are there any products or reinforcement techniques that would work? Could there be a reason why he avoids his litter box sometimes or does he do it “just because”? I’d appreciate some answers from people who understand a cat’s mentality a bit.

For some reason this cat has marked its territory in that one spot. Try calling a trainer and ask them what to treat the carpet with so that the cat will loose interest in that area.
Wish I could have helped more as I am sure it is annoying.
