No problem. Cats have very little windage and are not that heavy. One of our guys here use to pull his Hobie 20 with an MG.

Back in the 80's, I pulled my Hobie 14 with a '68 VW Beetle and a clamp-on bumper hitch (very flimsy!). Now that I have a Wave, I'm planning on putting a hitch back on the same Beetle to relive "the good old days."

Your Focus should have no problem if a classic Beetle can do it.
