    Wash the car? Pressure wash it all off! getting rid of the cat is not so easy.
    Now I need a turbo to keep up!

    Be warned, dont direct the pressure washer directly at the rad, the pressure bends the fins in the rad and you will start to overheat. I'd just spray everything with some kind of disinfectant than just spray off with a hose pipe.

    Hi
    could it be that the cat did its bussiness where the wipers are (scuttle panel) and its all run down into the pollen/cabin filter?

    Once a cat has on it unless you get rid of the whiff other cats will add to the stench. The pollen filter idea is interesting, a new trend in in cabin air freshness, that 'cat just' smell.

    i have just aqquired a karcher pressure washer that has a variable spray from gentle to blast a way (and a dirt blaster nozzle) so would be ideal to wash the car,it has a detergent pipe so can get the detergent in all the places you need it without causing any damage,just got to wait for the first cat to go near my car
