Thank you! I have a rubbermaid container in there right now, however I think I 
cut the opening too low, so going to Walmart to get another and will try again. 
Hopefully this will work a little better.  :)

I use 18 gallon rubbermaid (or knock-off) totes.  Depending on age and 
condition, your cat may be able to jump in to the tote.  This works for Copper 
and Thomas and worked for Dixie.  I started this with Ebony who was getting a 
little older and had touble "getting down."  The urine hit the back of the tote 
and eliminated a lot of problems (yes, you have to clean it more often if this 
happens but I would rather clean plastic than drywall).  I cut a U-shaped piece 
out of the tote on a short end for Ebony.  If you find you have to make the cut 
out make it high so Pepper has to really work at hitting the opening.  I never 
put a lid on the tote.  Do not put too much litter in the tote.  It is tempting 
to put extra in but you don't need it and it may make it uncomfortable for the 
cat to walk.
