Oh dear.
Please please don't put him to sleep because of that.
That's just ridiculous to even think about. I totally know how it is. In fact..I've got almost the same problem in This Thread.
There are a few ideas being given to me in that thread. Check it out.
Hope it helps some.
But again, and I cant possibly emphasize this enough, PLEASE do not put him to sleep because of it.

Did you check into any of the ideas given in the thread link I gave you?
They are great ideas, and I've already put a couple into place to help my cats pooping outside the box problem. Hopefully they work.
I know it is frustrating. Just don't let it get to you that bad.
Sheesh...I'd never think of putting him to sleep because of it though.
I had even thought about making my entire closet a 5X5 container full of litter to use as a litter box. Something like a sandbox you know?
But that seemed a little impractical.

Just keep trying to help out the situation. It'll all work out somehow.

also, if you do a forum search, you will probably find some other threads about this problem. there is a special cat litter, called cat attract, that is specially made to re-train cats to use the litterbox. after health issues are ruled out, you might consider buying some to re-train Pete with.
