From 1947 to 1989, Shasta existed as an actual cougar, and in that time five live Shastas maintained a presence on campus.  In 1990, Shasta was reborn as a costumed mascot and was joined by a female colleague, Sasha.  Since then, they've become fan favorites on campus and a symbol of the university's proud presence in the community.
