I must have blinked and missed the part where I slammed anything in that sentence... Perhaps "smiley insufficiency" (or some related syndriome) is at work.

AFAIK there aren't any leopards in S. America. Maybe you're thinking of jaguars, which are a different species, significantly larger, yadda.
Puma and leopard, though, are even less related, being in different feline sub-families. (Or in informal terms, leopard are 'small' "big cats", and puma are large "small cats", i.e more closely related to housecats, (<ObGlorantha>a)lynx, etc.)

... except to another pouncing cat of about 250 lbs, among others.

Actually leopards and (and jaguars) are much more closely related to either than to puma. (In Glorantha, who knows? GL/4-world taxonomy may bear little in the way of resemblance to the RW sort.)

Not sure I am either. I thought I was pedanting, not complaining.
