Easily, I would think. Rodents of many kinds urinate pretty generally in their living spaces; perhaps that's part of the reason they're typically not esteemed as articles of cuisine.
I think it would be hard to avoid creating some airborne microdroplets when, for example, using a broom or a vacuum cleaner to remove mouse nests (or rat nests).
Perhaps, also, the various members of the genus mus
-- rats, mice, gerbils, etc. -- might spray when under attack, say by a camper with a stick or broom, even just stomping or kicking. Rodents and their nests are biohazards, most especially in areas where Hantavirus exists in the wild.
