Hot and sexy older woman, usually in her 40’s or 50’s, single or married, who is on the "hunt" for a much younger, energetic, willing-to-do-anything male. The cougar can frequently be seen in a padded bra, cleavage exposed, propped up against a bar waiting, watching, calculating; gearing up to sink her claws into an innocent young and strapping buck who happens to cross her path. True cougars are classy, beautiful creatures who have made their successes on their own, have real brains, and are real head turners. Man is cougar's number one prey!

A mature woman (old enough to be the mother of a high schooler and usually the product of a failed marriage) who has kept themself in good enough shape and style to compete with the younger early to mid 20s females for the silver back males at bars. A cougar's sexual appetite demands a healthy physically fit mate. For this reason, cougars are especially attracted to younger males.

Cougars make great mates for younger males because they usually have their own house and no roommates, no interest in reproducing, their own alcohol, fake breasts, don't expect you to call the next day, and don't require much cuddling after a good one night stand.

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.

An alert/call used to not only warn others of the presence an "untouchable," but to ask for assistance in the avoidance of the "untouchable" in question as well. If alert fails and one is approached, respect each others boundaries and speak in a proffesional matter. Politeness and distance are one's keys to success in the everlasting battle faced each day.
Here is a situation in which the("cougar!") alert would be placed in effect. The possible interaction b/w oneself and a "David Eggers" would warrent a "cougar" alert/call. May also appear under the name "Davey." Quick description: Tall, slender body type. Brown eyes and hair. 15/16 years of age. An,"I'm the shit," attitude.

Overview:In Western Canada, cougar is an unflattering word used to describe a middle-aged woman who prowls the bars in search of younger men. Not to be confused with hooker, gold-digger or hootch.

Demographic: The cougar has typically been divorced or is a single mother who has had children at a very young age and is trying to relive her lost youth. Her occupation tends to be that of the pink collar variety: administrative assistant, government worker, or receptionist for oil-field equipment companies. They can also be sighted working for policing organizations because of easy access to fresh meat in the form of young recruits. The Western Candian Cougar loves men, and despises all women, especially young, better educated women whom she fears may steal her job. She sees her main role in the workplace as that of snitch and clock-watcher for the office manager, and never hesitates to tattle on truants or tardy co-workers. The Western Cougars can be seen at 9:30 am and 2:30 pm, smoking in groups outside of any office building, glaring at passerby and simpering for any passing men.

Dress: The Western Canadian cougar dresses in cheap, tight clothing bought in the Juniors department of Stitches or the Garage Clothing Company. It is extremely important to the Western Canadian Cougar that she stills fits into Junior-sized clothing, as poorly-fitting and inappropriate as it may be because it proves that she still has her fabulous bod even after years of smoking, babies, and drinking.

Makeup: Consists of a hard scrawl of black eye-liner on both upper and lower lids, pink pearlescent lisptick, and wrinkles inadvertantly emphasized by a real or fake tan. This is a very important indicator for those observing the Western Canadian Cougar, in particular, lip wrinkles and pouchy eyes. The Western Canadian Cougar does not have easy access to plastic surgery, and such defects may be inexpertly camoflaged with bad bronzer and/or clotted concealer.

Hair colour: Predominantly blonde with black roots (although matte black or matte burgundy has also been spotted in some regions), over-processed and over-layered. Hair length is always long. Nails are usually square-tipped and French-manicured, however long, spoon-shaped, and coated with chipped silver polish is also a popular variant in some regions.

Accessories: The Western Canadian Cougar never leaves her house without her smokes, her cell phone, and a bottle of loud perfume such as Obsession, Shalimar, Poison, or Giorgio, lavishly applied regardless of occasion. The Western Canadian Cougar knows that there is no better cover-up for "bar smell" like a squirt of Giorgio applied in the women's washroom at intermission.

Prey: Young guys in voluminous quantity, any time, any where, but usually only for one night.

Habitat: Bars, offices, malls, trailer parks, high density housing developments, row housing.
Gawd, Helen in accounting is such a cougar: she got drunk at the support staff conference and went home with a 17 year-old guy she met at the hotel.

Coo-gher. An older woman who's primary interest lies in bedding younger men. Often, but not necessarily, with money; cougars are the more aggressive variety of the commonly used term: milf.
