A house cat stalking a Mountain Lion? Strange but true.

Lynne  Barnard saw a young Mountain Lion outside her Sea Ranch home. She couldn't believe her eyes when she saw the neighbor's cat, "Truffles," stalk the cougar.

Truffles, a black house cat, is on the left. The young Mountain Lion is on the right, looking at the too-brave cat. The story is in this week's Independent Coast Observer. But I will tell you Truffles survived.

Thanks to Lynne for sharing her great sighting and photo.

This is a mistaken identity. That is NOT a mountain lion but a large house cat. Notice the fluffy tail.

Trudy, I have another photo of the Mtn, Lion which shows the long tail better. You can see that photo on the ICO's website at It really is a Mountain Lion.
