Holy Puppy Poop!!! Look at the size of those kitty cats. This is a photo that Mom took when she was visiting the Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum. These are Mountain Lions and are one of the most popular exhibits at the museum. The really great thing about the Desert Museum is that they rehabilitate wild animals or they rescue injured animals or animals that wander into populated areas that would otherwise have to be killed. The Desert Museum is a pawsome place to learn about all of the animals that share the Sonoran Desert with us. The only bad thing is that Mom never lets us go. She says dogs and Mountain Lions don't mix. But what does she know, we ain't afraid of no stinkin Mountain Lions. They're just big cats, with big claws and big teeth and......hey, Keiko, why are you hiding under the bed?

Sunny,Scooter,Jamie said...

Pedro said...


Let me tell you something about mountain lions... They are big cats. I know you guys are all big and think cats would make a tasty appetizer but I'm smaller then alot of house cats and they can be pretty scary. Now mountain lions are to you what cats are too me. My advice - STAY AWAY FROM THEM! I've been the victim of cat claws more than once and it does not feel good...


Sparky said...

My goodness, you certainly wouldn't want to tangle with one of those...


Lady Kaos said...

Whoa! Those are some big cats!!!

Joe Stains said...

THOSE CATS ARE THAT CLOSE TO US?! *hides in sleeping bag*

The Thundering Herd said...

Holy catnip, those are big. Where we live, they have claimed that Mountain Lions are extinct (meaning no (ex) stink (stinct) we think). But people have claimed to see them. We find it interesting that the Park Service has started listing them as a "possible" inhabitant in our area in ecological studies. Guess we had better be on the alert.

Here, kitty, kitty - oh my!

Raising Addie said...

That's one big kitty! I wouldn't want to meet them on a dark street.


Khyra The Siberian Husky said...

The Devil Dog said...

Keiko's keeping me company under the bed, that's what she's doing. Nice kitty, kitty.

Suka said...

hey Desert Pups,

I told you there is something strange going on in the land of Cats! I have never seen a Mountain Lion but I agree with Keiko, run and hide! Especially if Mountian Lions are related to Ninja kitty, who can move without moving! Yipes! That's hella scary for Halloween!


Siku Marie, White Dog said...

Those cats are not so tough. My parents took me to that museum when I was just a puppy and I barked so much that one of the lions went deep inside his cave to get away from me! Then the ranger came and told mom that I was not allowed to be there.

Happy Halloween...I hope your treat bags are filled with wonderful tasties.

Sophy said...

Whoa! That's a big cat. I would stay away from it.


Maggie and Mitch said...

Holy Moley! Those are HUGE kitties!

Love ya lots,
Maggie and Mitch

Charlie Daniels said...

I would let those C-A-Ts walk through my yard and I wouldn't even bark once! ;-)



Katie and Gizmo said...

Ok I've decided I no longer like cats especially those big ones.


Dannan and The Girl said...

That Desert Museum does some good work. Glad to hear that they help out those animals.

I've never seen cats quite like that before. Do you think that one of them would play with me???

Brown dog kisses,

Saint Lover said...

I LOVE the Desert Museum!!!! I used to go there all the time when I was a kid! Its been years since I have been there though.

You were lucky to see the kitties out and about, they were always sleeping when I went.

Hi there!
I would like to burn a theme at here. There is such a nicey, called HYIP, or High Yield Investment Program. It reminds of financial piramyde, but in rare cases one may happen to meet a company that really pays up to 2% daily not on invested money, but from real profits.

For several years , I earn money with the help of these programs.
I'm with no money problems now, but there are heights that must be conquered . I make 2G daily, and my first investment was 500 dollars only.
Right now, I managed to catch a guaranteed variant to make a sharp rise . Visit my web site to get additional info. [url=]Online Investment Blog[/url]
