      Did the cat pee on it or "spray" it as they often do to mark territory ?
      Knowing the extent of the damage and the type/color of velvet would also
      help. Hopefully as much of the urine as could be absorbed was blotted off
      the garment before it had a chance to set a stain. Try hand washing the spot
      with either fels naptha bar soap or sunlight bars soap and lukewarm to
      moderate temp water. Best way is to make a lather and use only the suds and
      working them into the nap with a soft bristle brush. Try not to saturate the
      fabric to the point where it is dripping wet. That should remove most if not
      all of the stain and odor. If odor is still evident spritz with some vodka.
