I use a dog crate - but you have to remove the plastic base (they slide around on it and can hurt themselves).

I put down a dust sheet in the boot (to catch straw etc) then some plastic, the crate and an inch of straw inside the crate. They can grip the floor then and any 'wet ones' get absorbed by the straw and caught by the plastic sheet...
