This picture was making the rounds of the local news yesterday and I loved it. Found out today the pictures belong to a client and that big furry feline (the domestic one, not the wild one) is hers. Small world. You can find a 15 photo slideshow here and the complete story here.
The cat’s name is Zeus…the mountain lion declined to give his name. Turns out he’s just a young lion and in other photos he’s with his mother. The next two are faves:
“Hey, don’t I know you”
“I don’t know what they’re talking about. I don’t think we look anything alike.”

Most excellent pictures! We have the occasional bobcat and the coyotes are ubiquitous but none of them as brazen as these guys.
I’m a little jealous. I’d love to see a mountain lion in the wild. All the photos are great (if you haven’t seen the slideshow it’s worth clicking over to). They do have a 6-foot fence around their property, not that that is a deterrent for mountain lions. There was one on the Colorado University campus last week. It’s that time of year…
Isn’t that a statue of a mountain lion on the left? Sure looks like it.
Hi Paul. See I think if you put a statue of a mountain lion in your yard, you’re inviting company. Just saying.
Sorry, I missed the ’15 photo slide show’ link. I had seen the reference to mother in other pictures.
I can be a little dense at times 🙂
Oh, you thought I was saying the statue was the mom! Now THAT is funny. I can see now how you must have thought I was a bit crazy.
I sent the first photo to a friend and he saw the head of the statue (which I missed the first 10 times I looked at that photo) and thought it was bear cub. I’d like that movie: mountain lion cub and bear cub’s adventures in the suburbs of Boulder.
LOL, just stopped by over at Balloon-Juice and see that Anne Laurie had the same comment – if you put out decoys you should expect visitors.
