Question Collecting Cat Urine Sample

Anyone have any strategies on how to collect a cat urine sample?

Kitty, our 13 YO is approaching her 9th life, very quickly. We took her to the vet today and while he took a blood sample, he equipped us with a little pill jar to collect a urine sample.

Not to drag this out into a long post/story but Kitty has been urinating in spots that do not contain litter and items that require daily laundering or extensive renovation (hardwood floors-AGAIN!).

Our vet gave us few cans of Medi-Cal Urinary SO that he recommended we start introducing to her regular food and suspects she has crystals or a UTI.

Our best guess tonight is that we've isolated her (away from Bella, our other cat) into a spare bedroom equipped with a empty litter box lined with Saran/Plastic wrap on one end with, her food/water bowl on the opposite.

Any other suggestions on how to capture a urine sample?

Fortunately, our vet said if she does urinate anytime tomorrow, we can drop it off and he'll test it right then to get immediate results.
