Captain Falcon's mystery behavior explained!
(or...susan davis was right!)
2-3 months ago, I asked about CF's strange behavior one night - demanding to be let out, then staying out a long time, then terrified.
I just learned that a mountain lion has been hunting in our neighborhood (photographed by my neighbor next door, & seen + scat seen, several other times).
Fish & Game said he looks adolescent, so he may have been small enough back in April, that Cappy was not harmed (only scared stiff).
His behavior is still mysterious, though. No barking at all. He must have smelled the cougar & been curious, not knowing enough to be afraid, until something scary happened.
Close call. No, he won't go out alone ever again. Not that he ever did, except that one time.
