Help rubber bath mat backing stuck to floor

I keep a mat with a rubberized backing on the floor underneath the cat food dishes in my kitchen. The backing of the mat has stuck to the floor, which is made of ceramic tile. Does anyone have a solution for getting all this little pieces of rubber off the floor? I have washed the floor repeatedly but they stay stuck. Thanks.

Random thought, what if you heat the pieces with a hair dryer and then try to peel them off???

I tried the rubbing alcohol, it didn't work. I have been looking for Goo Gone and haven't been able to find it. I will try the hair dryer and the WD40. Thanks.
