Pumas are fierce and after weeks of observation I believe it is not merely an innate quality but one they have learned from their trainer.
We do not know the origin of the species, only that they may be found prowling anywhere within the house, and that they prefer to roam free rather than be returned to their dark, flat cages.
What we do know: that several weeks ago L began declaring I need my PUMAS! and pushing her stepstool to the silverware drawer, freeing her wild wards, and carrying them about the house.

Still life with wild pumas napping on a dresser top.
What we do not know: why.
