Default Litterbox Woes....

My foster persian Dick Cheney has moved on to his new home, where he is adored and rules the roost. I had not planned on fostering cats any longer.
Well, you all know what they say about the best laid plans....

A person at my internship has a coworker who wants to get rid of her persian. Like, yesterday.

The history as told to me:
She has had 'Fluffy' for 2 months. He was adopted from the pound, no history on him. He is now neutered and UTD on all shots. Fluffy has consistatnly pooped outside of the litterbox since she brought him home. She has tried confining him with the box in a bathroom, and he pooped next to the box instead of in it. She has tried different litters.

Fluffy has been checked and medically cleared. He is otherwise happy and loving.

Before he was adopted, he was kept at the vet clinic for 2 weeks, while he got over a UR infection and waited to be nuetered. He did use the litterbox appropriately there, so he does understand the concept.

For right now, my plan is to confine Fluffy in the large dog crate with his box when he is not being directly monitered. Then, when he proves he can be trusted, I can give him more freedoms. Hopefully we can work up to having run of the house.

In the past week, Fluffy has urinated outside the box for the first few times, but she feels like he is responding to stress in the home, as her husband wants him gone right now, and is not shy about showing it.

She wants to have Fluffy PTS, so I am the person of last resort. Any other suggestions for a persian on his last chance?
