Unhappy poo problem

ok...charlie had a poo accident. this has never happened before and i don't know what to do. let me give you guys some background first, though:

i wasn't going to tell anyone this (didn't want to hear the negative feedback), but a couple of days ago, i let charlie have an outside-day. he stayed out over-night and when he came back the next day i brought him back inside cause it was getting cold. he'd really been wanting to go outside and so i thought i'd let him for a bit.

also, as most of you know, he is in my bedroom and doesn't get much interaction with people because the dogs get jealous when i'm in there and will paw at the door.

soooo.......
tonight i go in there to see him and smelled poo, but didn't see any in the litter box. so i look over at one of the dog pillows in there and there's poo on it! he's never done this! there's been pee in his litter box for about a day (didn't think anything was in there). i noticed it just now.

so my ques is: why did he do this?
possible reasons:
1) cover up slight smell of dogs on pillow (i say "slight" because they hardly ever used that pillow).
2) for attention
3) mad cause i brought him back inside
4) litter box was dirty/not enough litter (he's gone in it when there's something already in there before, though)
5) other ?????????

so what do you guys think??!! help meeee!

hardy har har, carm!!! well, i think it was a...ONE OFF. he went back to using his litter box. however, i did find out that he has tape worms. but he already has a vet appointment for tomorrow, so they'll just take care of it then. i wonder if the worms were the cause of the poo accident.

we'll find out tomorrow.

Madness cats normally do stuff when they are mad so he probably did it in temper because you wouldn't let him out again and then forgot all about it when you went back in to him. Hopefully just a one off but probably worth keeping an eye on him, i don't think the tape worms would have caused him to do it as if they were affecting him would more than likely have happened more than once
