There has been a lot of press lately about cougars and there are so many different definitions too. And no, they’re not talking about the large, tan colored, predatory cats, also known as a puma, mountain lion, or panther that finds its native home in North America.
A cougar has been described as an older woman who is primarily attracted to the company of younger men. Why is that so bad? The most commonly-accepted definition of a cougar is a woman 40 years of age or older who exclusively pursues very young men. The onset of the cougar years is hotly debated. Some feel that a cougar can be as young as 35, but women of this age would not be viewed as cougars unless their sexual conquests were no older than 25. It seems that not one person can agree on what “exactly” is a cougar.
Here are some little known facts about cougars to help set this controversy straight:
- Cougars are independent, confident women who know what they want out of life.

- Cougars aren’t from Cougarville, but they can reside even in your hometown.
- Cougars have learned from experience, scoff at the “princess syndrome”, and enjoy life.
- Cougars have earned their cougariety to be who they are in the world.
- Cougars will continue to evolve, learn, love, teach, express, and entertain the rest of us.
