BOULDER, Colo. -- Gail Loveman's 11-year-old cat named Zeus usually stands tall and hisses when he sees a squirrel outside his owner's home. He wasn't as much of a tough guy when the animal on the other side of the glass was a mountain lion.

Loveman says she was in her home office last Thursday when she heard a noise and turned to see the mountain lion on the porch.

Zeus entered the room and walked to the sliding glass door for a closer look while Loveman snapped photos.

Loveman went upstairs and spotted a second mountain lion. She says both jumped a fence and left.
