Perhaps you could take the cat off the car and in some way 'cook' it clean? -Maybe strap an electric heat-gun (one of those to remove paint from wooden doors and windows) for an hour or two? Just a suggestion..

Never criticize someone until you've walked a mile in his shoes. That way, when you do, you're a mile away -and you have his shoes!
