Entertaining, Snuggly, Inquisitive
Henri is quite the character. Somebody get this kitty a TV show! When he isn't running around exploring his surroundings, he will follow you around curiously seeing if he can help you with whatever it is you're doing. If he wants a pet, Henri will roll over and show you his belly in hopes of a tummy rub then quickly run off to see what else is going on. Active is an understatement! He loves any type of toy but especially those he can bat around.
Henri has silky smooth fur that is irresistible to pets...If you can get him to sit still long enough. He may be active but during the night he'll snuggle up in your neck or armpit and purr - it's adorable. Another fun fact about Henri - he's bilingual! His foster is working on her French skills and practices on Henri which adds a classy element to his character. A black cat that understands French...chic.
Due to his activity level, Henri would probably do well with kids. He's a ham so children would probably find him very entertaining. His prior foster home had large dogs that Henri got along with just fine. Henri is incontinent which requires him to be manually expressed about 3 times a day but he's excellent at it! He rolls over and lets you help him out no problem without giving you any trouble. Henri's ideal home would include a family willing to keep him active with play time and people with patience willing to express him a few times a day. Any household would be lucky to have Henri as not only a companion, but an entertainer as well!
Henri is incontinent and requires some extra medical care, which may includes a regulated diet and manual expression. View his video above to see how simple it is to express Henri! For more information, please contact APA!
