A cougar cannot be defined simply, as one cannot consciously seek out a cougar. One can only prepare him/herself to confirm a positive cougar sighting by familiarizing themselves with the common signs/traits of a cougar. Many mistakenly fall back on their general knowledge of cougars to incorrectly confirm and report a cougar encounter. Those who are commonly sighted in public and misidentified are usually not actual cougars but are their more familiar and far less cunning cousin- the puma. Cougars are always on the prowl for a new mate and are seasoned in their tactics to not be easily identified, as they served many years as a bobcat gaining experience prior to attaining their seasoned cougar status. If you feel the presence of a cougar on the prowl you may instinctively experience a chill down your spine. It is advisable to shy away and avoid falling prey to the attack. When drinking it is good prevention to have a wingman that honors the Sheppard’s rule to not let you leave the herd or the watering hole without their approval.

Three common flaws in the cougar’s camouflage:

1. She knows a lot of your acquaintances and they tend to have positive initial individual reactions to seeing her, but quickly shy away when they realize they are in the herd. (Cougars are known to prey upon many animals in the same herd that generally enjoy the experience but fear publicly admitting the encounter, as falling prey to a cougar scars the reputation.)

2. Despite her ability to fit in by wearing the current fashion, during conversation about current popular music or TV culture she may make references of many retro or historical topics that you may or may not have some basic knowledge of. (Cougars are generally fifteen or more years older than they appear in a dimly lit bar or club and generally prey upon victims substantially younger than they are.)

3. Cougars tend to have trophy toys to entice their prey such as expensive sports cars, hot tubs, expensive homes, etc. which are products of their years of success in their careers. (These luxuries are not easily afforded during the more youthful period that preceded becoming a cougar.)

Bear in mind, once a cougar on the prowl has cornered you, separated you from the herd and pounced, you too will likely not publicly admit to the encounter.

A woman 35 and older who is capable of gaining the attention of cubs (men 18-29 years of age). While some Cougars are actively seeking relationships with cubs, others simply like the idea of staying sexy and knowing that they could catch a cub if they wanted to.

A woman aged 40 and up, single or married, who may appear to be younger then she actually is. They enjoys the sexual company of younger men. They are more willing than younger women to have casual sex or one-night stands due to their fertility decline and the approach of menopause. Hunting grounds are any social event where younger males are present. They require constant compliments and flattery due to low self esteem. Not wanting to grow up, they struggle with a constant mental battle; they keep denying the inevitable fade of there beauty due to aging rather than accepting it as a natural state of being. With the physically fight against aging they use vitamins, supplementation products, anti-aging products, cosmetics, and going to the gym. The art of illusion is also a tool they use; attractive or revealing clothing, form altering clothing, and they use a general sense of fashion. In general, this constant shallow focus on outer beauty has left the cougars inner beauty damaged, weak, or nonexistent.

A cougar is an older, experienced woman who has maintained her sex appeal through the years. (She may or may not have children.) A cougar is typically in her 30s or 40s. Some women maintain their cougar name well into their 50s, but this is a rare occurrence. Because the cougar is wise enough to appreciate the power of the pussy but is still attractive, she has the ability to mate with much younger men. She earns the name cougar because of her similarity to her animal counterpart, who is a capable, solitary stalk-and-ambush predator.

Do not confuse the cougar with the golddigger, who uses men for money or other monetary gifts. The cougar is also not to be confused with the sugar mamma, who usually pays a younger man’s bills in exchange for sex. A cougar does not pounce on her prey for money or status but purely for her own personal enjoyment.

The existence of the website cougarlife.com is humorous because cougars have no need for the aid of modern technology, on account of the fact that, by their nature, most men are sluts.

An older woman (35+) who preys upon young sexual toys. While most cougars prefer their victims under 25 years of age, some rare types will stalk those as old as ten years their junior. Cougars frequently wear push-up bras and glitter, prowling about karaoke bars and jello wrestling pits for firm, youthful flesh. Not uncommonly, a real cougar would say they aren't one. That way their target would be falsely reassured before the fatal pounce.
