How to wash leather

So the new chap is fitting in quite nicely, follows me around when the other cats let him, doesn't mind them at all, and is still trying to figure out the rules (which the other cats are changing, because, they're cats and obnoxious is in their job description). Additionally, his tail is looking better (now about three weeks post amputation) and he's getting around far better on his gimpy leg than I expected.

The vets say the leg is nerve damage, and will either heal on its own in the next few months or be a permanent limp. Either option is fine with me. He does use the leg, gesturing, in the litter box, and to slap the dogs when they sniff too close, he just doesn't like to put weight on it. He just carries it off the ground (like in the picture) when he moves, unless he really needs it for balance, in which case he leans on the elbow, rather than the foot.

Anyway, this weekend the shelter held a yard sale, and I saw something that I thought would go nicely with the sock monkey collar Oscar wears, or the floral filigree pink collar Liberty has:

A spiked black leather cat collar for the gimpy amputee.

He is unimpressed.

Nevertheless, I think it's pretty fabulous, but am thinking I'd like to clean it before putting it on him - any suggestions how to do that?

(and no, he doesn't have a name yet)

Greyson? A little formal for a cat, but I was thinking tuxedo grey.

Or Tom, in honor of the tank engine that could.

Why yes, I do go around stating the obvious all the time. lola7
