Colorado House Cat Has Close Cougar Encounter
October 25, 2011
A Boulder, Colorado house cat that goes by the name of Zeus got an up-close-and-personal look at a feline that's a bit higher up on the food chain in a strange cougar encounter.
According to the Denver Post, Gail Loveman was working in her home office when she heard a commotion on her front porch. Upon investigating, she spotted her 11-year-old Main coon cat standing face-to-face with a young tom cougar -- the unlikely duo were separated by a sliding glass door.
Loveman revealed to the Post that "(the cat) typically stands tall, hisses and acts fairly aggressive when he sees other animals - mostly squirrels, other house cats or even dogs - through the glass door. But Zeus remained calm as he appraised the big cat."
