Jaguarundi in Melaque

Marcos was house sitting a place in Ranchito so I went one day to visit. Nice big fancy place with pool but is surrounded by an old mango orchard and beyond - just country. I assume because not much civilization around is why this little guy came around.

We assumed, having never seen one, he was young and lost his family. I hear they make pets (sort of) but hard to imagine with the growling this guy did - really ferocious. He would come around your feet if he thought there was something he'd missed to eat but was generally very shy. What was he eating around the house - cat food of course

I didn't have my camera with me and found these fotos on Elke's site (same cat). She had spelled it 'jacurandi' or something similar and I spent a 1/2 hour looking for what it was

The construction of the house finished in April 2011 and I'm pretty much settled in. As of March 2014 I'm in preparation for rain mode for this coming summer. That includes sealing and painting things and dealing with drainage issues from last year.
