Today, Teddy got a letter from Harry Lowe. It read:
Just your catching a bird is not remarkable, but having a postcard portrait is. Are you jealous? This is so valuable and impressive that I am not addressing it but sending it unscarred.
Enclosed was the above "unscarred" postcard image, Chat saisissant un oiseau by Pablo Picasso. Anne and Harry Lowe took off to Richmond to see the Picasso exhibit before it moved on. And they didn't invite me...or Teddy.
Teddy feels that he is much prettier than that old Picasso cat.
His summer hunting total to date:
Birds -- 3 Chipmunks -- 14.
It is a sad day for Alvin.
