Not Moving

In May of 1894, the De Ruyter Gleaner noted:

“A cat owned by Mrs. Mary Beardsley of Skaneateles seems to hold the long journey record. It was taken to Rochester in a box, where it escaped and disappeared, soon to reappear at its old home in Skaneateles.”

The cat was fortunate to make its escape when it did. By 1902, Mrs. Beardsley was living in Wilmothesville, Missouri, a considerably longer walk home.
