There's scary, and then there's mountain lions outside your bedroom window scary.
If you've followed anything I've written over the past month or so, you've probably come to grips with my unbridled fear of mountain lions. It's not really the cat themselves I find so terrifying, but the fact that if one decided to take you out, you'd never see it coming. Then, even worse, you'd probably just lie there and suffocate as it held you by the neck. Getting killed by a cat has to be one of the worst ways to go.
So, with that in mind, just imagine how you'd feel waking up in the middle of the night with two mountain lions circling each other less 10 feet from your bed.
This is the stuff nightmares are made out of.
Yes, our course I'm kidding a little bit about my fear of mountain lions. The odds of one of them actually taking a person out are slim, but the odds are there. It's because of this I rarely ever enter cat country unarmed. Unfortunately, though, it appears that if you do live in cat country, they come to you.
