Cat urine on unprimed color-field painting

From: Steven Prins <sprins1102<-at->

I have received in my studio for treatment a color-field painting on
unprimed canvas that has been marked with urine by a male cat.  I am
wondering if anyone on the list has recent references regarding
feline urine composition and chemistry, as well as
conservation-appropriate procedures and formulae for its removal
from unprimed canvas? Thanks in advance for any references and/or
