Our cat has made a second litter box of our spare bedroom, what can we do to
keep him from wanting to return to the room and urinating? The problem
originally came from bad litter box maintenance, but we have remedied that
problem. He just seems content on going in there when he places. He has
already destroyed 2 complete sets of bed linens.

Very poor, and incorrect advice. Almost all litterbox problems can be
solved, often with very little expense and time.
Is there a shelter by you with a cat behaviorilist? We have one who
does not charge anything and will discuss several things with the
person to get to the root of the problem.
Remember Doctor Von Zimmer from the movie, "Down and Out in Beverly Hills"? Dr.
Von Zimmer was a pet psychiatrist (a psychiatrist just for pets). Actually, I
think your best bet is to prevent the cat from going into the bedroom by
keeping the door closed. Then you might try pet therapy/behavior modification
of some kind. Good luck.
close the door and keep him out of that room altogether. Then you have to
completely eliminate any residual odor from the room. An enzyme cleaner may
eventually get rid of the smell but if you've tossed 2 sets of bed linens I
would imagine the mattress is toast.
You may eventually be able to let him back in once a long period of time has
passed which will break the habit and the odor is completely eliminated. Of
course this is dependent on you're continuing to keep his litter box clean
so he doesn't look for alternatives.
