Imagine coming home to what you think is an empty house only to find a mountain lion taking a nap behind your couch?

A woman named Lauren Taylor said the large cat was drinking from her home’s large pond. The back door was open, Taylor said in a Facebook post, and the cougar entered a room with “huge plants and stairs built around real tree branches, so she likely didn’t even realize she was walking indoors until was inside.

 .

Taylor added that the mountain lion became frightened after someone’s screams and tried, unsuccessfully, to escape through a closed window. 

That’s when the animal took cover behind the sofa in Taylor’s living room. 

The 6-hour ordeal ended peacefully, Taylor said, because of positive energy.
