What's the best way of getting pet urine odour out of a Tempur Pressure Relieving mattress?

On the first night in our new house our cat urinated on our bed - a £1000+ Tempur mattress. According to the manufacturer, if the liquid (any type) penetrated the mattress entirely then it's a write-off. It will damage the foam which won't work any more.
Well it did go through to the bottom, plus we tried to soak up as much as we could (with a wet cloth - which was the wrong thing to do apparently). However, after drying out the thing seems fine. It retains it's memory foam properties and you wouldn't be able to tell which part was soaked.
However there is the smell... All the standard methods involve more soaking and I don't want to push my luck. Can anyone think of another method of removing the odour?
