OMG this is one LUCKY cat!

Here's a good reason to keep your cats indoors! (And also to not leave your doors open! )

The last sentence of the article has me scratching my head "WHY??".

Cat owners' prayer: "Lord help me be the person my cat thinks I am"

Because cougars who'll walk into someone's house are way too habituated to humans and are very, very dangerous.

Couldn't the cougar be relocated far from inhabited areas...?

I've tried arguing that point before, apparently, they can't be. Something about territories and such.

We had a cougar come into a town near here... stole some pets, etc. They killed it, too.

This is about bobcats, but the same applies to cougars. http://bigcatrescue.org/relocating-bobcats-and-cougars/
They can't be relocated. I hate seeing these beautiful big cats killed, but when they walk into houses and prey on pets and children, something has to be done. Of course the real issue is people moving into the cougars territories to begin with.
