I'm not quite sure who would know this, but what's the texture of a live mountain lion's coat like? I've touched one made into a rug, found it sort of coarse and slick with brittle hair. At the time I assumed that it was at least partly due to how the pelt was processed, but am I correct in thinking that it's the same general idea on a live cat? I was wondering too about that bit of soft, fluffy fur that house cats have at the bases of their ears and on their throats. Likely to be there on a cougar, or more typical of the small Felis cats?
