Sam on the roof in Rampart

Photograph of Sam the cat on the Rivenburgs' roof in Rampart. Narrative in photo album reads: "Picture on the roof of the back entrance to our kitchen in Rampart. Sam lived on whole raw rabbits which I shot with a '22' rifle." " 'Sam' was given to us at Rampart, Alaska, by a couple leaving for the 'Outside.' He was the only cat we saw while in Alaska for the four years except the one of the Gasser's on the U. S. Agricultural Station Farm.  The many hungry, savage dogs do not give cats much chance."  Archives, University of Alaska Fairbanks.
