Mountain lions get hairballs too!

We’ve been placing motion-sensing trail cameras in the Santa Cruz Mountains since 2008. Our cameras have captured pumas sleeping, playing, calling to each other, scent marking, and courting. However, never before have we caught a mountain lion behaving like this! This clip shows that in many ways, mountain lions are not all that different from the kitty cats that share our homes.

FYI, this video is a bit graphic. Anyone who has ever owned as house cat will recognize what’s about to happen as soon as they click “Play”. For full effect, turn up the volume…

Feel free to share this youtube video! :)

The hairball in question, if you’re interested…
