This stare down between a mountain lion and a house cat happened last week, in the foothills of Boulder, Colorado. Here's what they said: Cat: Tough luck about that glass door, eh? Mountain lion: Guess you won't be coming out for fresh air anymore, eh? Cat: I'm cool. I don't mind mind watching Wild Kingdom from in here. Mountain lion: What about your owner? She going to stay inside forever, too? Cat: You don't scare us! Mountain Lion: Be seeing you"¦ You couldn't pay me to live here, which is where the house is at. I'd be a nervous wreck anytime my boys played outside. The owner, however, was thrilled with the encounter and told the Denver Post:

I feel blessed

Yeah, I wonder how she'll feel next time she spots the big kitty eyeballing her when she's reading the paper on that lovely porch or walking to her car in the driveway. (Photo: The Denver Post | Gail J. Loveman)
