“William McLeod of Calgary is the proud owner of a little white cat which lays claim to the marathon hike title for felines.” “The Pioneer,” 16 February 1924.
“When the McLeod family moved from Calgary to Port Arthur, Ontario in July 1922, the minor members insisted on taking ‘Snowball,’ their little white kitty, along. Accordingly, the cat was shipped to Port Arthur. Mr. McLeod took the cat to the house they expected to occupy but which at the time was still occupied by the retiring tenants. The cat, however, in its new surroundings was wont to be wild, and as a result was shut up in the cellar, but in some unaccountable manner escaped from its banishment and disappeared.”
