Guess that trip to the outhouse can wait after all ...

LOL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Eric and I had routine physicals last Friday and our physician advised Eric to take 15 minutes out of his lunch time and walk vigorously around Tilden Park three days a week. (Tilden Park is right next to the Space Sciences Lab.) Eric responded that he didn't want to do that because a Mountain Lion had been spotted in the area. Our doctor looked at Eric like that was the stupidest excuse he had EVER heard for not exercising!

LOL - Sounds like a reasonable excuse to me ;)

You are clearly overfeeding him Angela :p

My 2 cats have the same problem if I get too generous with the food.

Think that's interesting? Take a look at what this homeowner had staring Him right in the face, not 1 Mountain Lion, but 3...

Visitors: A pack of mountain lions were on the prowl in the snow covered yard of the home belonging to John Vomastic
Anyone home? Man has a terrifying face-to-face encounter with a mountain lion peering into his house in Rocky Mountains

What to do if you encounter a lion

1. Do not turn your back
2. Do not run
3. Appear larger. Raise arms, objects, or jackets above your head
4. If you have a coat, open it up
5. Slowly back away. If you are with others, form a group, you'll be less interesting as potential prey
6. Smile! Show your teeth
7. Make loud, menacing sounds, like yelling and growling
8. Probability of risk is serious if within 200 yards


Face to face: John Vomastic was inside his Colorado home and captured this photograph of one of the mountain lions peering in



Oh my...We don't get to see that over here, must be really scary...
