How to lionize a cat. Our cat Nera, that is now living her tenth life in the eternal corn chambers dealing with mice, was lionized. She had extremely long thick fur and became a housing estate for tics, and various plant seeds, as well as leaves and stalks. She never had fleas, which was a wonder. Now and again a tic would leave its housing establishment in her fur and one of us humans might tread on it leaving a large smear of cat blood on the floor.
