Buy one of those cheap grindy bit kits that you put in your drill . Put a pointy one in and carefully grind out the rust . Then paint away .

check previous posts.
Get your 2-letter colour code off your firewall placard, go see a panel beater and get them to mix up 500ml of paint for you, and get the hardener in a separate container (the hardner chemically sets the paint, and you can keep your touch up paint in a jar for years if you dont mix in the hardner in up front)
Wash your car (dont wax), use a little paint brush to brush touch, then wax it when almost dry. Unless its a metallic (sparkly paint) you cant even tell. If you wax before you brush touch, it will be like trying to put a cat in a full bath.

That is so cruel, trying to put a cat in a full bath!

Try a full bucket instead, much better, oh, and wear long gloves.

easiest if you flatten out the cat first - then you can do it without gloves.

Reminds me of a bumper sticker I saw once,

"A good cat, is a flat cat"
