Strange Smell

This is weird, but, I smell a strange amonia or almost uirne-like odor in the interior of the car, which seems to be coming through the heating system? Any ideas?

Are sure it is not a sulphur smell? If so check that the battery isn't boiling. (Overcharging).

A friend of mine had the same problem in his car. I'm not sure how true the story is, but apparantly, a close inspection revealed a dead cat in the engine. I hope it isn't this, but you never know.
