Undoubtedly, we are experiencing a phase in history that is unparalleled and characterized by melancholy, perplexity, and exasperation. Amidst these turbulent times, one thing that can bring a glimmer of joy and happiness to our lives is the presence of our beloved feline companions. However, this source of elation is not limited to our pet cats only. The sight of big cats, particularly their adorable cubs, can also light up our spirits and make us grin from ear to ear.
As cities continue to grow, the natural habitats of big cats are rapidly disappearing worldwide, including the mountain lions that roam the Santa Monica Mountains in California. Fortunately, there are dedicated individuals who strive to ensure the survival of these majestic animals. Despite their efforts, research predicts that the mountain lions in this area will become extinct within the next fifty years. However, the Santa Monica Mountains National Recreation Area recently announced some heartening news that has taken many by surprise – the birth of three adorable mountain lion kittens!
The Santa Monica Mountains National Recreation Area has recently shared some heartwarming news on their Facebook page, and the accompanying images are absolutely beautiful. Despite the difficult times we’re currently facing with the ongoing pandemic and the national conversation about race and civil rights, we wanted to highlight this positive update.
The Santa Monica Mountains National Recreation Area has shared some exciting news – they have found a den of adorable mountain lion kittens! A three-year old mountain lion, P-54, has given birth to a litter of three – two males, P-82 and P-83, and one female, P-84. This is believed to be her first litter. The discovery of these cute kittens not only brings joy to our hearts but also brings hope for genetic diversity in the Santa Monica Mountains, as the presumed father, P-63, may have brought new genetic material to the area. In other feline news, have you seen Vivo the Maine Coon? This cat is unlike any other!
It’s been over four months since P-63, the sole adult male mountain lion with a radio collar in Santa Monica Mountains, was spotted several times with P-54 over two days, suggesting a potential mating encounter. After around 90 days, researchers observed GPS signals indicating that P-54 had either fed on prey or given birth, leading to speculation that P-63 may have fathered the kittens.
I want to express my deepest gratitude to the dedicated individuals associated with the Santa Monica Mountains National Recreation Area for their efforts in safeguarding these felines. Their contribution is vital to ensure the survival of these majestic creatures, and I am certain that I am not alone in appreciating their hard work. A big shout-out to these amazing people!

Introducing my charming feline friend, Thorin, who never fails to steal the show with his fluffy coat and mesmerizing blue eyes. His name is inspired by the legendary dwarven king from The Hobbit movies, which perfectly complements his majestic and dignified demeanor. Every time I come across his photographs, I can almost hear him say, “Hey there, human! How about some treats for your favorite feline while I stick out my tongue?” His love for being photographed is undeniable, and he enjoys posing as a king or even as Hairy Potter, showcasing his unique and versatile looks. Even without any costumes, Thorin resembles a white tiger and is incredibly affectionate and snuggly. While you can safely pet him, be warned that his beautiful eyes might just sweep you off your feet. Feel free to follow his Instagram page for more information!
