| "Pole-Sliding Sam" was the only cat in the world who could slide
down a 20 foot brass fire pole.
He came to Station #6, a tiger stripped,
yellow-eyed kitten and became their mascot for six years. Sam was
interviewed on television, featured on magazine covers, in
newspapers, and "Ripley's Believe It or Not".
In 1964, Station #6 moved to a one story
building without a pole and Sam disappeared, never to be seen again.
Right is a photo of Sam in action.
