25-pound cat nicknamed ‘Man Face’ mistaken for mountain lion
A 25-pound feral cat was captured and neutered by a San Joaquin County animal rescue group after a neighbor mistook him for a mountain lion.
Residents in the community of Mountain House call the big feline Man Face.
“Man Face, yeah that’s what we call him,” said neighbor Jimmy Sales. “He is a real mean cat. He beats up all the cats in the neighborhood.”
Sales told FOX40 in Sacramento he would not mistake Man Face for a mountain lion but reiterated that the cat is really big.
Neighbors are hoping Man Face will calm down after his neutering.
