Feline and Nature Friday - Caterwauling by a Mountain Lion

In the recent travels of the female mountain lion who was looking for a mate, she came very close to our house around mid-morning on a weekend. My cam captured some rare daytime footage. This was the last sighting of her before she left our neck of the woods.

She clearly wasn't happy to be so close to people. She trotted away (unlike the usual cat saunter), and she didn't visit any nearby scent posts.
I sure hope that she has kittens!

I made a video of her best bouts of caterwauling. It's short, and you might enjoy hearing her amazing voice. It overjoys me that we have cats like this female lion in our forest.

I am linking up to Feline Friday and Nature Friday Blog Hops.

  14. I listened to the caterwauling video and forgot all about poor old kittycat Mittens sound asleep at my feet. She sat up very alarmed and most concerned when she couldn't see where the noise was coming from. I wonder if she understood what was being said?

  16. I learn so much from you and your webcams. Thanks for all the time you put into the short videos you post for us. Glad this girl didn't feel comfortable close to the houses.

    Hope your back is feeling better. It certainly doesn't seem to be slowing you down!

    Cheers,
    Chris from Boise
