Sounds like either your heater core has sprung a leak or one of the hose clamps have come loose on the heater core. I'd bring it to the shop. That's not going to be a fun thing to fix........

Plus 3 cats in one week is ridiculous. Either you have someone who likes your money or someone who doesn't know how to diagnose what is wrong with your car. Is it still misfiring?

If that is all the issue is, a new hose is like $15 and the labor to replace plus coolant. Under $100.
