Nature and Feline Friday - Female Mountain Lion Following behind a Male

Shortly after that male mountain lion marked his territory in daylight, a female entered the same area. She first got a big drink, and then she went to the same marking area where we saw the male.

I think that this female was out looking for a mate, and she picked up on his scent after he marked.  She's a beautiful creature, probably one of the mothers who we watched raise her kittens over the past couple of years. Her last litter of kittens probably stayed with her until they were 18-24 months old before they headed off on their own.

This is part 2 of 3 of the story of these two lions getting together. Check out the video!


  1. it's so wonderful to watch the way of nature....

  2. She is so beautiful. We can't believe she will be waiting long for a suitable mate!

  3. I have a feeling she's looking for him and he's waiting for her. They will find each other. Beautiful.

    Thank you for joining the Feline Friday Blog Hop.

    Have a purrfect Feline Friday and weekend. Scritches to the pups. ♥

  4. She is absolutely gorgeous and so fluid I love to watch the way they walk and they just kind of flow along like they don't have any bones

  5. She is beautiful, and ooooh I'm so looking forward to your next videos.

  6. We can't wait to see the rest of the story. It's always so fun to get these sneak peeks into life in the forrest.

  7. Suspense builds! Looking forward to Part 3!

  8. It's so cool to see how the males and females 'keep track of each other's meanderings.' Happy weekend!

  9. OMCs KB....thank you for this wonderful video. The female was thirsty...I loved hearing her lap up the water.

  10. It's still pretty amazing to us that those beautiful critters are your neighbors.

  11. We wish we could put up a video like yours but all we have is one of river rats at a gas station.

  12. A lion love story! They are so amazing, such hard lives they really lead, but it is fascinating.
