In honor of Canada Day, the origin of the term Cougar. It originates from Canada. I lived in Canada for a while and heard Canadians using the term years before anyone else. A Canadian friend was even on a volleyball team made up of late 20 year old men and older sexy ladys.. name of team: 'The Kids and the Cougs'. Young Canadian men spoke about notorious 'cougar bars'. Eventually, I started hearing it on American TV shows (there's tons of Canadians in Hollywood), then eventually everyone was using it. Credit where credit is due, the term migrated from Canada.
Cheers to the cougars and thank you Canada.
