My cat is leaking from many orifices. Awesome.

My four-year-old cat has recently started drooling when happy. Okay. But in the last two days she has twice peed in weird places inside.

had a vet checkup in August and all was fine. However, since then she has started drooling when she's on our laps and purring. We didn't think too much of it as she is still eating normally so there's no obvious dental issues.
Last night I went to put away my (thankfully waterproof) jacket and there was cat pee on it. When I told my husband he said she'd also recently peed in his office. The cat pee didn't smell overly strong (yes, I did smell it because on a dark coat I wasn't sure what it was) but seemed to have a brownish residue. She is an outside cat and has never used a litter tray so peeing inside is very odd behaviour.
I suspect it's a UTI but wonder whether there's a connection between the drooling and the peeing? We will be going to the vet this week to get her checked but in the meantime I'm curious.
