Don't have my own cat right now so I had to dig into the archives and look around town for cat shots ;) Mountain lions are native to Colorado. I've never seen one in the wild….not sure I'd want to! The local high school's mascot is the black panther. Got this in Manitou Springs….high school art classes came to decorate the sidewalks with colorful chalk. My daughter's kitten, Snooter, taken several years ago. Check out his super long whiskers!
