Close up of a cougar staring into the camera


Tahi is a petite mountain lion who retains her natural shyness and catlike curiosity. Before her rescue, she was kept in a basement and was malnourished and declawed. Tahi gets the zoomies pretty often, dashing around the trees and peeking from hidey holes in her garden. She delights in fresh trout, grabbing the fish by the head and running into her shelter so no one can steal it.

Animal Fact Guide: Cougars are solitary creatures, interacting only to mate. In the wild, cougars can live to around 10 years and as long as 20 years in captivity.
