Bad habits

Since about two years my cat, Teddy, has developed a new bad habit. Once in a while, instead of using his litter box, he uses our front door mat as his toilet. My MIL sent me this paper cutting. It is a photo of a cat in Malden using the toilet as his toilet. MIL left a note. She wrote: wouldn’t it be lovely if we could train Teddy to do this instead of him peeing on the door mat. After having bought our 3rd door mat, we now use a towel to clean our feet. I’m not that happy with this solution, but I don’t think I’ll be able to train Teddy to use the toilet. Does anyone have any suggestions on how to discourage Teddy from doing this? Reconditioning would be the way to go, but how do I do this?
