11 year old Maine Coon cat Zeus had a face to face encounter with a young mountain lion who came to the glass door of his Boulder CO home. The meeting is documented in a series of photos.
The young mountain lion came to the glass doors on the deck of Gail Loveman’s home last Thursday, October 13. Indoor cat Zeus calmly kept up his part of the staring match and did not back down when the big cat snarled. After about 5 minutes the mountain lion turned and left, stopping to pose with a sculpture of a mountain lion just beyond the deck before meeting up with a bigger cat, presumed to be the mother.
As noted above, Zeus does not go outside. Ms. Loveman says she has not seen mountain lions around her home at any other time, but she will be cautious when going outside from now on.
