This is definitely one cool cat... A moggy stood its ground as a huge mountain lion pawed at it on a back door window pane.

The mountain lion/house cat face-off was caught on camera by US comedian Tom Mabe while he was staying at a friend's house in Boulder, Colorado.

Tom can be heard saying: "Oh my, is that crazy or what?", as the mountain lion paws and hisses at the cat, which just stands there and lets out the odd little miaow.

And, being the prankster that he is, Tom couldn't help a little joke with his wife, who comes in and says: "Oh my God. Where are the kids?"

Tom replies: "They're out back."

She gasps: "Tommy, are you kidding me?"

He laughs: "They're still in bed", and she replies: "That is not funny." Her shocked outcry ends up scaring off the lion, which wanders off back into the forest.

Tom uploaded the video online, and said: "There had been a lot of sightings of cougars and mountain lions but a cat has never come up to their back deck like that."
