Haley suspected Monsieur Perdu may have fallen from the stroller of our around-the-corner neighbor who strolls past our house every morning with her Grandfather. I didn't think so because after seeing Perdu outside my house that first morning I left him there for 2 more days and no one claimed him. That's why I thought he was mysteriously placed there.
This morning when Grandfather strolled passed my house I asked him if Perdu belonged to his Granddaughter and he said yes. My heart sank because I knew my fun was over but at the same time I was happy for the little girl because she smiled when she saw Perdu. She said "tank you!" Thinking this might be Perdu's last day with me, I asked him to pass the torch to his friend, Mr. Meow.
