It should be fine in the washer, on a gentle cycle which is generally short. Put a bath towel in with it to create some friction, that won't hurt the bag. Let it air dry.
1. Empty all the Contents Before you begin to soak the laptop in water, make it a point to take out all of the contents, especially the small electronic devices like chargers for phones and laptops. Papers, pens, whatever it is that isn’t initially part of the laptop upon purchase needs to be removed. Apart from small things, you should also remove all the other detachable straps and pockets. 2. Brush off Dirt, Dust and Loose Threads Before soaking it in water, make sure to check for any loose surface dirt and dust them off, as many as you possibly could, which would allow your water to be as clean as possible. Once the dirt has been dusted off, you could even use a rag to wipe off some of the more stubborn patches of dirt. If you see loose threads hanging, especially near the seams, cut them with scissors. Do not tug them. 3. Add Detergent – Water Mix to Stains If you see stubborn stains, usually caused by either rust, food and drinks, have this area pre-treated. To do so, mix equal parts, 50-50 for detergent and water, and with the soft brush, scrub the residue away. Let it sit for 30 minutes, as most of these would further fade with the bag. 4. Fill a Large Basin or Pale with Lukewarm Water Lukewarm water is effective at removing tough stains. Be wary, however, not to use hot water as this might causethe color to bleed out. Take caution for this step, as some bags might not be made for soaking. Make sure that the label indicates that it can be soaked before doing so. 5. Proceed with the Washing The next step would be to move forward with the washing. To do so, submerge the bag if it is permissible, and add some mild soap. Use the same toothbrush to scrub the pre-treated area a second time, as well as using it to reach the nooks and crannies in the bag. Make sure not to over-do this procedure. Stop once you see that the stains are fully removed. 6. Rinse Thoroughly Take out all residues fromsoap and detergent. This might require you to soak your bag in a pail or basin or fresh water. You can use a body towel to rinse a lot of water by wrapping the bag in it and then pressing it lightly. 7. Hang it Out to Dry Allow things to dry the natural way, keep the bag unzipped, and make sure that it hangs upside-down to allow all the water to be removed.

Not Really a Doctor
There's a product called Nature's Miracle and it comes in different styles for different situations. It's an enzymatic cleaner, going after the specific pet based stains. They have ones specific to cat urine that does a pretty good job of getting the smell out. You can find it at pet stores but I've also seen it in grocery stores, too.
I would put warm water(not hot) in the bathtub, with some laundry detergent. Place the bag in there and push down on it, working the bag up and down in the water, agitating it, so to speak. Flip over and do the other side...I bet you will see all sorts of dirt coming off of it. With the bag open the water and detergent will even go inside the bag. Drain the water and do it again, if you think it needs another round. then drain again and use cold water to rinse and rinse VERY well. allow it to drip dry for a while in the tub and then take it outside and hand it upside down on the wash line of over a fence post(cover the post with a clean rag first if it looks dirty) and allow to dry in the fresh air and sunlight.
saddle soap and patience. get rid of the cat, by the way. once they start peeing in inappropriate places, they'll continue doing so -- it's old age
I just chuck stuff like that in the washing machine on a short/gentle cold cycle with a cap of eucalyptus oil to disinfect and freshen.
I doubt it can go in a washer. You may have to get some hot water, detergent, and wash it with a cloth.
I have had great luck with a product called Kids-N-Pets. They sell it on Amazon and at Walmart (though Walmart doesn't always have it in stock). My cat peed on my sofa and it got the smell and stains out and now my sofa just smells like bananas-which is better than smelling like cat pee!
washing machine on e gentle cycle, same for drying or let air dry
soak it with strong laundry powder/liquid
Chances are you won't be able to get the odor of the cat urine out of the bag anyway, so just put it in the washing machine with some odor eliminator, like Odoban and then air dry.
I have used a product called Odo-Ban on cat pee in the past, and it works fairly well. Mix it with water and let the bag soak before washing it.
