“Jacko, with poor Pussy’s bone – by Harrison Weir” is a full page book plate image, taken from the “Chatterbox Album of Animals”, published by W.W.Gardner, circa 1878. The short anecdote accompanying the illustration, reads as follows: “Jacko, the Macaw, is very cruel to poor Pussy. If he sees her picking up a bone he creeps from his ivy, helping himself down with beak and claws, and all at once Pussy darts away from the bone she is enjoying, and you may guess what follows. Jacko has it to himself, while poor Puss stands at a little distance watching.”
