Henry

There is someone I'd like you all to meet.

Henry

This is Henry. He is six weeks old. Of course I got him. Have you met me?

Henry does not yet weigh two pounds. He's a brute, is what he is. He is so purry and affectionate! We just had a nap, and I feel maybe a trifle allergic to his fuzzy self. I am ignoring it.

Henry did not have a mom. He and his six siblings were found on a roof. Which tempted me to name him Rufus, but I went with the whole red hair/Henry VIII thing.

Sniff What's with the silver shoes, new mom?

So far I have introduced him to Tallulah, who started shaking, and Winston, who actually hissed for the first time in his life. But he only hissed once and didn't growl or anything. Henry is in the guest room for now and we will try more introductions later.

Leopard

Francis has no clue there is even a kitten here. Because he never gets up from his old man chair, is why. And no, Cher did not call and want her sheets back.

Food

Gee, do you think Marvin gave him enough food? The bowl is larger than the kitten is.

Up Okay, seriously? We need to do the suspended in the air pose? Because my day hasn't been traumatic enough. Thanks.

At one point, I was sort of hot, in a "she's 27 and probably a 7" kind of a way. Now I'm old and have to develop a charming personality. Guess how that's going.

  1. Hooray! I love Henry and his cute, cute self. I’m so happy for you!! How will you ever leave him to go to work (or anywhere else, for that matter)? He’s a pumpkin!!!

  2. Oh my God Henry is so darn cute! I’ve been checking back because I just KNEW you would get him and post a picture! Man, now I want a kitten! I’m really glad you got him, and realized right away how silly I was to insinuate that Marvin might have a say in this decision! Love the name Henry. Wouldn’t take a Willy or a Sam, NO SAM!
    Will it be you, or Marvin sleeping in the guest room with Henry tonight?!

  3. So glad you rescued from a high-kill shelter! He is gorgeous, adorable, cute, kissable, OMG how could anyone NOT want that sweetheart??! And BTW, I have a furry four-legged HENRY too. 🙂 Have fun with him!

  4. Henry is beautiful! I’m so glad for you. Makes me want a new kitten!
    My Oliver, may he rest in peace, was stalked, terrorized and eventually eaten by a bobcat. We live in a rough neighborhood. I’m afraid a new kitten would be considered an hors d’oeuvres.

  5. Awww…he is so sweet! Im jealous! We arent allowed to have any animals in our apartment…like even if a friend comes over with a their dog. The dog cant step foot in the house or we get yelled at! When we get a house…we are getting cats and dogs. I will then enlist you to help name them.

  6. O.M.G!!!! Too adorable!!! I’m a little jealous that you get to enjoy *3* kitties, and my brat-cat won’t allow anyone new… So I’ll enjoy Henry through you. I wanna eat him up!

  7. No — I don’t know you. But I know I would adore you — anyone who is such a sucker for animals is someone I would love. Henry is one lucky kitten. Congratulations to the whole family on the new arrival.

  8. Congratulations and Mazel Tov to you and Marvin. Henry is a great name. Much like my Walter. Who loves some old man names for their animals? I look forward to watching you little man grow.

  9. Oh my goodness! He is sooooooo cute!!!!!! Orange cats make the best pets! I understand why you couldn’t resist saving him from the shelter. Makes me want a kitten, they are so much fun. I would love to have one, but Oscar Snuggles, King of Tidewater would have heart failure. I would be afraid he would seriously harm a little kitten like your previous Henry. Henry and the d.o.g kind of match in color. Poor Fran, he may never recover from the shock. Winston will adjust and probably enjoy the youngster and his playful ways. Such a happy day, especially for Henry. 🙂

  10. This made me TEAR. UP. Congratulations to everyone, especially you Henry. You have no idea what a loving family and home you’ve found.
    P.S. would not have been able to resist Rufus. You’re a bigger woman than I am.

  11. There are few things in the world better than little kittens. In fact, right now I can’t think of any. Our youngest of 4 cats has had a traumatic time recently and may have to have his paralysed tail docked. Found myself thinking,”I bet a new kitten would cheer Milo up.” Yeah.

  19. You should have heard the noise that came out of me when I saw that first picture of Henry! Your blog is a daily reminder of how sad I am that I got allergic to everything and can’t have pets anymore. But, you know, in a good way. I get to live vicariously through your menagerie.
    Congratulations!
