Cougar For Sale

Cougars, a member of the big cat family that also includes tigers and lions, go by several different names such as panther, mountain lion, puma, and catamount. At one time, cougars roamed across most of North and South America from southeastern Alaska to southern Chile and Argentina. They have the largest natural distribution of any land animal in the Western Hemisphere. Cougars are found in mountain forests, swamplands, grassy prairies, and tropical forests.

Cougar Pet

Big cats like cougars need large, spacious outdoor cages, or enclosures. Because cougars are wild, predatory animals, safety of the keepers is paramount. Doors and gates on the enclosure should be securely locked at all times. Enclosures should have a roof over them to prevent the animal from escaping.

Cougar Diet

Cougars are carnivores and require a large amount of raw meat every day. Commercial feline, or large cat, food can also be given. These mixtures typically contain ground chicken, bones and added vitamins.

Enrichment for Cougars

Cougars in captivity thrive when provided with mental and physical stimulation and enrichment. Introducing new items or food will pique the animal’s curiosity. Rocks, logs, or ledges give cougars a place to sun themselves. Balls and toys will get their attention, too. A hollowed out pumpkin will give them hours of fun.

Breeding Cougars

Male and female cougars spend very little time together before and after mating. Once the female becomes pregnant, the male plays no role in raising the baby. Most cougars reach adulthood by the time they are two years old. The gestational period for the cougar is about 92 days. The mothers deliver one to four kittens, though most of the time, two babies are born. The kittens are blind and helpless at first, but soon they accompany their mother on hunts. Once they reach the age of two, they are generally on their own.

    Sanctuary since 1999. We just lost our last cat. If these cats need homes because they are unadoptable we may be able to take them.

    To qualify for a USDA license, last I checked required an inspection of your Property, Assets & Proper Educational Back-ground... You have to prove you have a proper facility, at least 1 year of Zoological studies and 1 year of hands-on care experience with the species you're applying for from an accredited institution & proof you got the money to properly care for the animals medical and dietary needs...

    I fell I love with bobcats of which I saw every 3-5 weeks on my grandfathers ranch. Also Siberia Lynx and 4 mountain lions while volunteering at Keepers of the Wild outside Kingman Arizona. I love the mountain lions and very surprised how quickly I was able to bond with them. I proved to Jonathan (owner of the rescue animals) who loved animals far more than people. I'm not saying I'm a animal guru of special. Just that these cats allowed me in and the love and affection was unbelievable. Not the case for me with lion and tigers or even wolves there. I miss all the animals and especially the 4 mountain lions. I would love to take care, love and be loved back by a beautiful female (not for breeding) but for that love and bond. Very happy to have come across your site. I hope to work with you here very soon. I would like to know how you ensure your cats are well breed, free of genetic issues and clean lines from poor breeding habits and or inbreeding. Thank you, Stacey Camsuzou

    I am interested in a cougar, but probably in about 10 years. I will probably try to get 2 cougars of the opposite gender, breed them, give the adults away, and then keep the cub. Or just buy a cub
