Pronunciation: \ˈkü-gər also -ˌgär\
Function: noun
Inflected Form(s): plural - cougars
Etymology: French couguar, modification of New Latin cuguacuarana

A cougar is a female mammal of the homo sapient family, 35-55 years old, found throughout most populated areas. A capable stalk-and-ambush predator, preying on much younger males, cougars can frequently be seen in urban and suburban densely-populated habitats with liquor licenses. A cougar's preferred prey item is usually but not always under 25, as cougars prefer to prey on younger men who have hair and get erections naturally. Typically solitary and territorial, cougars have been frequently observed hunting in packs while individual territory sizes depend on terrain, vegetation, and abundance of prey. A cougar's prime predation hours are late evenings to early mornings and especially during weekends. Cougars will typically leave their cubs with relatives, ex-husbands, ex-in-laws or an overnight sitter while hunting.

Typically, cougars have been known to misrepresent their age to prey items due to the normally short duration of predation periods, from one night to several months, and having the advantage of a smokin' hot appearance allowing them to pass for a much younger animal such as a puma. Being older, wiser, and highly skilled; cougars pursue younger men more for their unwavering stamina than for materialism as is the case with the puma. Cougars crave the attention and thrill of an uncomplicated sexually intense relationship that younger men tend to offer. Although the term's urban use began pejoratively, it is now usually viewed as a compliment, as young men frequently enjoy being preyed upon by an attractive cougar or MILF.

Physical characteristics

Cougars are slender and agile standing 5 to 6 foot in height, without heels, with the ideal specimen averaging 36" inches around the chest, 26" around the waist and 36" around the hips and buttocks while weighing anywhere between 100 to 135lbs on average. The cougar's head is well maintained with a luxurious and frequently dyed mane and a painted-on face. The cougar has 10 claws on their forepaws and 10 shorter claws on their hind paws which typically are painted the same color. The cougar's skin varies in color from specimen to specimen and even between siblings due to natural skin pigments, make-up, sun exposure and spray on tans. Hair color, design or absence of hair in the pubic region of the cougar varies according to the cougar's preference and whether the carpet will match the curtains but typically the hair is darker than the mane in which the norm is a landing strip or a small semi-triangular patch.

Examples of cougars are; Kim Cattrall, Kim Basinger, Catherine Zeta Jones, Courtney Cox, Demi Moore, Faith Hill, Daryl Hannah, Tyra Banks, Vivica Fox, Andie MacDowell, among many other famous specimen.

A Cougar is a much older woman who has a appreciation for the qualities of a younger sexy man. For example the fact they are like the energizer bunny and keep going and going and going, Oh My!
Another reason is there is no kissing to make it all personal, there is no I love you's to set up for a future disappointment and last but least the younger man always leaves so that the ladies can go on with their daily business. Nothing is ever said, it's always discreet and that makes the sex even more great!
A plus side also is that younger men are so much more sexier these days!
"see that MILF, she's a Cougar on the prowl!"

Meaning Her mom is looking for some fun with a younger guy.

A mature woman old enough to be the mother of a high schooler, typically age 40 and older that like the company of a younger man, single or divorced, a woman who prefers to hunt rather than be hunted. Cougars are sick of guys whose sole peak of happiness is a remote and someone to wait on him. Contrary to popular belief, cougars have evolved. They are still hot enough to get a younger man and younger men are always on the prowl for cougars so younger women, you should be worried. Cougars are attractive, who know what they want and aren't afraid to go after it. They are hot, classy, groomed to perfection. They seek younger men, and don't have to sneak up and attack...they know their younger mates are eager to get an experienced woman. Being a cougar is a positive thing.
That cougar is hot!
