Obviously Zeus the watch-cat was Lion down on the job. Caught napping, our fearless feline awakened to the pitter-patter of Puma paws on the back deck of this Boulder, Colorado home. In a classic case of fight or flight, Zeus…did neither. Obviously, he couldn’t be bothered.
It’s hard to tell who got the best of this stare-down but Zeus didn’t seem too perturbed.
Our young mountain lion soon tired of efforts to bond with his domesticated cousin. He wandered into the yard and appeared to be rather enamored with the statue of…what else…a mountain lion.
Eventually, his mate joined him….a mini puma pride.
Zeus bears a striking resemblance to our neighborhood wild cat, Apollo…and we DO live at the foot of Mount Olympus… .
Speaking of bears, compare that cat encounter with the Five Cubs in a Bear Tree… (Hum that to the tune of ’12 Days of Christmas.’)
This family of rambunctious bruins scrambled up an Aspen tree near Whitefish, Montana. No one knows why…confusion…fear…we’re guessing it probably wasn’t the view… But they sure brought traffic to a halt on highway 93 as nearly 100 cars stopped to take a look.
Authorities say it’s pretty uncommon for a black bear to have a litter of five baby bruins. They attribute it to the abundant food in the region over the past few years. Kind of makes you wonder how many house pets have gone missing in that period, doesn’t it?
