A cougar is a woman (because men get away with it) who steals all the men eligible from the younger generations. Basically, they're women who steal all the guys us younger women/girls (in the case of Aaron Johnson). Bitches.
Aaron, I expected you to have higher standards than a cougar like Sam.

An older woman (usually 30+) who is on the prowl for younger men usually in bars, restaurants, night clubs, or on the beach. She is always financially secure and thus isn't looking for an older man to provide for her. She may be single, married, divorced, with children, or without. No circumstance can stop her from going after her prey (young HOT and SEXY men) usually between 18 and 29. Any older just isn't her thing.

The term derived from the Hollywood Hills area of Los Angeles California. Because it is the hills where wildlife live such as cougars, deer, etc... Much like a cougar, the rich woman living in the Hollywood hills comes down the mountain to prey on young men. The younger guys usually struggling actors/waiters, starving musicians, starving students, or just starving are eager to get their drinks paid for by these ladies. They also hope these ladies will invite them back to their pad for some fun in their beautiful rich homes.

Since the term started to catch on and expand across the states the definition has been changed many times over.
However, the basic character is the same. Financially secure women over 30 years old who like younger men to marry, sleep with, or just have around for eye candy.

A woman who, for some unknown reason, is attracted to men she finds out are younger than she is, often significantly so. She looks younger than her age, acts younger than her age, and has the confidence she didn't have when she was younger - which younger men apparently find appealing. She's not always the bottle blond, surgically enhanced woman described in other definitions of the word. She most often has her life in order and has earned her independence. She's probably not had a conventional life and she's ok with that. Many of her friends don't get it and tell her to find some old rich fart to die with.
This is a cougar scenario of the kind described above: The flirtation had gone on for weeks and he finally asked her for her number. She gave it to him knowing he was another young one. When she found out how old he really was, she sighed on the inside. All she could say was, "I'm a bit older than you." He guessed she was about 38 and in her head she said, "Yeah, that's how old I was when I had my daughter who is now 15." Another sigh.

A cougar cannot be defined simply, as one cannot consciously seek out a cougar. One can only prepare him/herself to confirm a positive cougar sighting by familiarizing themselves with the common signs/traits of a cougar. Many mistakenly fall back on their general knowledge of cougars to incorrectly confirm and report a cougar encounter. Those who are commonly sighted in public and misidentified are usually not actual cougars but are their more familiar and far less cunning cousin- the puma. Cougars are always on the prowl for a new mate and are seasoned in their tactics to not be easily identified, as they served many years as a bobcat gaining experience prior to attaining their seasoned cougar status. If you feel the presence of a cougar on the prowl you may instinctively experience a chill down your spine. It is advisable to shy away and avoid falling prey to the attack. When drinking it is good prevention to have a wingman that honors the Sheppard’s rule to not let you leave the herd or the watering hole without their approval.

Three common flaws in the cougar’s camouflage:

1. She knows a lot of your acquaintances and they tend to have positive initial individual reactions to seeing her, but quickly shy away when they realize they are in the herd. (Cougars are known to prey upon many animals in the same herd that generally enjoy the experience but fear publicly admitting the encounter, as falling prey to a cougar scars the reputation.)

2. Despite her ability to fit in by wearing the current fashion, during conversation about current popular music or TV culture she may make references of many retro or historical topics that you may or may not have some basic knowledge of. (Cougars are generally fifteen or more years older than they appear in a dimly lit bar or club and generally prey upon victims substantially younger than they are.)

3. Cougars tend to have trophy toys to entice their prey such as expensive sports cars, hot tubs, expensive homes, etc. which are products of their years of success in their careers. (These luxuries are not easily afforded during the more youthful period that preceded becoming a cougar.)

Bear in mind, once a cougar on the prowl has cornered you, separated you from the herd and pounced, you too will likely not publicly admit to the encounter.
