The Liger

Interesting Facts and Myths

To be honest, I never knew that a Liger was a real animal.  Silly me, I did not think it was possible for a Lion and a Tiger to mate.  Why would they not be if a domestic cat could mate with a wild cat?  The Liger is a cross between a male lion and a female tiger.  The liger is the largest cat in the world.  They stand at approximately 11 feet tall and weigh close to half a ton. 

Mountain Lion Frightened by Dog

One Timid Big Kitty

Last week in Los Altos, California, a Mountain Lion was chased up a tree by a German Shepard.  Earlier in the day, a man in the neighborhood saw the cat and warned neighbors to be careful.  Little did he know that this one was not much of a threat.  It is believed that it was roaming around looking for food when it was frightened and chased 40 feet up a tree by an 85 pound German Shepard.  The California Fishing and Game Control came to the scene, but decided to leave the Mountain Lion alone.  It finally came down on its own a few hours later.
