“Women and cats will do as they please, and men and dogs should relax and get used to the idea.” – Robert A. Heinlein

Today is Cougar Monday. I donned my wildcat spots and feline attitude, and ruled the world around me.
There is a strong cat energy in my life. I was born under the Leo Zodiac sign and in the Chinese astrological year of the Tiger. I have always had cats for pets, from Felix to Little Cat to my current best feline friends Oscar and Bianca. I’m more comfortable around cats. They are independent, moody, and sleek. There’s just something about a cat.
The term “Cougar” has very specific connotations for women. Known as a 40-something woman, she preys on younger men for sexual fulfillment. That isn’t my “M.O.”, but I am married to a younger man and we are doing just fine – thank you.
What’s your totem animal?
