"Leo," brown tabby, born 1884, died 1901;
presented to Mrs. Persis Bodwell Martin, of Augusta, Maine, by Mrs. E. R.
Pierce, when he was six months old. He lived a life of luxury and ease,
having his meals served by his mistress's own hand in the upper hall,
where he chose to spend his time for the later years of his life.
Regarding to his type he was competitive to any thoroughbred brown
tabby - first, colour of muzzle, length of nose, size and shape of eyes,
breadth of forehead, size of ears, length of hair in the ears, and on the
head. In body markings "Leo" would fall off, as his hair was so
extremely long that the markings became somewhat confused.
