When the early American settlers established themselves on the eastern seaboard they were given supplies of food and animal skins by the Native Americans. The Natives also supplied the settlers with the skins of female cougars. One day a settler asked one of the Natives why they only brought "female" Cougar skins. The leader of the Native expedition being a humorous fellow replied "The male Cougars live up in the Mountains, and are far too vicious to capture." Thus the name "Mountain Lion" was born.
The cougar is the second largest wildcat. It can leap over 40 feet at a time. Although the Cougar is fast it tires quickly. The Cougar's main prey are Porcupines and Deer.
If cougar shows up as your animal guide, it means that it is time for you to assert yourself. This is especially true if you have been experiencing many difficulties in your life. This is a sign that the difficult times are coming to and end, but only if you are assertive as well as agressive in your efforts to seize new opportunities.
