Ok... for all that's been waiting.  Yesterday at about 4 I got home from work. My wife then left me with the bambina and went out to collect eggs. 20 seconds later she ran inside screaming "It's back". I grabbed my AR, that was loaded and ready, and ran outside with my wife and dog in tow.
I soon realized I was way to excited, as I was now standing 20ft, yes 20ft, from a lion that looked like he was about to mess me up! He was standing strait at me in the pounce position. I aimed and fired. He rolled and let out a noise I will never forget.
After all night praying to God, at least 50 times, I woke up this morning with friends ready to find my cat. After 400 yards of tracking blood and fur I still haven't found it.
I have know idea how an animal that has been shot by a 556 at 20ft away can last that long. I'm not giving up, but my heart and mind is not in a good place.

If nothing vital was hit, it could easily survive. 

What bullets are you shooting, solids or an expanding type?

Do you have any idea what part/where on the body you hit, what area did the fur you were finding look like it came from?

What did the blood look like, color, amount, etc?

Any pictures of the blood or fur? 
It is better to be consistently incorrect than inconsistently correct...

Sarcasm: The ability to insult stupid people without them realizing it. 

My level of sarcasm depends on your level of stupidity...

Sarcasm makes smart people laugh and stupid people mad.

Yeah, I saw that NE was pretty much shut down. Need to keep at it here, I'm sure it's over soon.

It was facing strait at me, when I think back, I think I was excited and scared at the same time. I aimed center mass under its chin. The blood is blood red, not lung or liver blood. The bullet was a hornady SST. I just don't understand how it could have gone that far. I shot it at 20ft. The thing rolled like it was hit by a car. I feel like crying. I should have used a 300 or 00buck. But everything I read said a simple 22 would due. I figured 556 was plenty. I know it's dead, but how far away did it die? That's what in my head right now.

Man that sucks,i was wanting to see some pic,I would keep looking did you mark the last blood ,go back and look in your spare time,I've have trailed coyotes in winter over a mile,blood spots as big as the coyote itself,where it looked like it layed down to die,then have the blood trail just vanish.
Predators can be tough.
Two birds in the Bush is always better than one in the hand-that way you can always go to the Bush and hunt another day .conservation=Better hunting.
