I remember this stuff it replaced the plutonium in Dr. Emmett Brown's Delorean so that he could get the nuclear reaction to generate the 1.21 jigawatts of electricity.

At the end of Back to the Future 1 - Doc comes back from the Future with the trash version of the reactor... Remember?

uh oh, sounds like an updated promo for the "101 uses for a dead cat" book. Viewed as totally tastless,I am sure, buy the kitty lovers.

It's a typical case of a bad journalist adding their own "details" to spice up a story to get coverage. The originator said nothing of the sort and has not used cats to fuel his car...
