Colorado House Cat Has Close Cougar Encounter

main coon, cougar meets cat, cat and cougar, cougar encounterA 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."
