My daughter Sarah oftens serves as my research assistant when I'm tracking down the history of books or pieces of paper that are featured here. She took special interest in a March post about Devil, a German Shepherd from the past, even writing her own blog post about it.
Now, Sarah has asked me -- and everyone out there reading this -- to help her identify the cat in this old photo. It's going to be a mighty challenge. This isn't a family photo -- we acquired it along with a bunch of other fantastic odds and ends when my wife won this groovy Ephemeraology giveaway earlier this year.
All we know about Sarah's Mystery Cat is:
- it's black
- it spent time outdoors
- it appears in a photo that was developed in December 1968
Nothing is written on the back of the Kodak snapshot, which looks like it was once in a photo album.
That's it. That's all we have to go on. We're looking for a miracle. Does anyone know this cat?
