Cat urine update

REMEMBER that I posted a while back that one of my cats had pissed on the backseat of my car while coming home from the vet? It's been a couple of months. I've scrubbed the seat, and tried to clean the smell out with baking soda. No luck. The car still smells like cat piss.

I'm beginning to worry that I'll have to throw away the car.


JOU
take
meaning: length, stature, measure
丈夫 == joubu == sturdy, robust
背丈 == setake == height
Once was a pictogram of a hand, and 'ten' (十). Each 'handbreadth' equaled about 30 cm (big hand!), and ten handbreadths equaled one 'jou', a measure of about ten feet. Now this character is used to mean measurement in a more general sense. Henshall suggests as a mnemonic:  'Hand holds stick ten feet in length.'.
