From the Feb. 21, 1936 News Record:

Kindness to dumb animals became more than a slogan to four Gillette boys yesterday morning when they found a yowling cat with its head wedged tightly in a tin can. When efforts to free it were not successful, they took it to the Holcomb blacksmith shop where the can was cut from the poor feline's head. The boys were Donald Miguel, Leslie Holcomb, Jr., Blair Jarvis and Edward Holcomb.
