This is Tawney and her happy face! She doesn’t always have her happy face on though, and at first glance usually looks really cranky. She can’t help it though, it’s just the face she has and it does not mirror how sweet she can really be!
Don’t get me wrong, she can have major attitude and it can take her a while to warm up to strangers. Once she knows you though, she will always meet you with loud purrs and fence rubbing. After all, all she really wants is your undying attention and love!
A lot of people pass Tawney by because her daughter Cassie lives right across from her. Cassie is our showboat and DEMANDS attention. Tawney is just a little less demanding and vocal about it, but enjoys company and love just as much!
She is also the only non-tiger that likes getting a cool shower from the water hoses in the heat of summer. Mountain lions are very similar to house cats in their behavior, and we all know how much house cats typically don’t like getting wet. It’s very unusual for a cougar to like getting a bath! #mountainlion #cougar #puma #bigcatsofinstagram
