Why does my cat defecate on the bed right in front of me? 2 Vets said he is not ill. He is normally a wonderful cat.

I keep his litter box clean. He has fresh water and food. He comes when I call him. I pet him at least 2 hrs. a day. He sleeps next to me. He knows what he is doing is wrong because he runs and hides after he does it.

Maybe it's marking his spot. You have to start be adamant about not letting him on your bed.

Keep him off your bed. Do you wash your sheets each time he does this? If you don't, than he's smelling where he thinks is appropriate to go.

in some weird way he is punishing you? I had a cat that would "punish" me by doing weird things - not that lol- but to "correct" my behavior. It was a match of wills. needless to say I lost.

You need to have one more litter box for the cat to peruse his choices and keep the cat in the kitchen or bathroom where you can easily clean defecate with an enzymatic cleaner. On the litter box, you can try to change litter substrate.
