ASHLAND, Ore. — An Oregon woman was surprised by an unexpected house guest: a mountain lion napping behind her sofa.
Taylor's roommate discovered the big cat and screamed -- causing the animal to hide behind the sofa and sleep for several hours, she wrote.
Taylor tried to wake up the mountain lion by making a noise, and then“gazed lovingly into her eyes, and communicated using feline-speak eye blinking to calm her.”
She said she “gazed lovingly” and then “blinked hard” at the cat, and then it went back to sleep several times before it was time to leave.
With “just a couple hours to dawn,” Taylor used a drum to encourage it to leave the house.
The six-hour encounter ended peacefully, Taylor said, because of positive energy.
