Wildcard search on jira

Hi All

I am trying to search for a keyword in the summary field and i want to use wildcard at the beginning.

project=ABC and summary ~ CAT* works

but

what i want to use is

project=ABC and summary ~ *CAT does not work

Any idea how i can use the wildcard at the beginning for searching

You cannot search with wildcard in the begining. See https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/JRA-6218

How does one do a real "contains" like a grep?  I'm finding it really hard to believe this isn't a function.  I need to search for a summary that contains TC02 somewhere in the string.  Thanks!
