A cougar cannot be defined in a simple definition. One cannot consciously seek out a cougar. One can only prepare himself/herself for confirming the positive identity of a cougar by familiarizing himself/herself with the common signs/traits of the cougar. Once one instinctively feels the potential presence of a cougar on the prowl, he/she can fall back on what he/she knows about cougars in general to positively confirm and report a cougar sighting.

Here are the most common signs/traits that your instincts may have accurately identified a cougar nearby:
1. A single woman over 30 appears to be at least 51 months older than she is biologically.
2. A single woman over 30 is talking to your 25 year-old ass about tunes on "Pyromania" and you're able to keep the conversation rolling with your knowledge of "The Vault" and interest in her white high-tops.
3. A single woman over 30 is overheard talking to a group of college men about how she used to date a college guy when she was in 7th grade because the color of his Camaro was the same as her back pocket comb.

So, how does one warn/notify a buddy that he may be talking with a cougar? Whisper into his ear, "Easy cougar, you're doin' fine." (See Top Gun)

Prime tactic is to lure the target into sharing a drink before binning it on to the target, making them consume the drink very quickly, making them feel dizzy and vulnerable. At this point the cougar pounces.

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.
