While I don't like to see wild animals in captivity I will admit I didn't read the story and I just sat and watched a person pet a cat for 3 minutes.

Cats are smart, not for the normal reasons, simply because they learned that to purr for humans would trigger some sort of stupid response and either the human will do what the person in the video did or will ignore the cat completely.

Either is exactly what the cat wants.  Pet me or leave me alone.

Clumsy Cat

I'm glad that big cats are just as ungraceful as house cats.

Occurred on March 12, 2017 / Coquitlam, BC, Canada "We had 3 cougars walk through our backyard on Sunday morning and then two returned over 4 hours later. Our dog alerted us to the presence of one sitting in the tree, and as I started recording, a second cougar fell off the fence behind.
