This is Henry in his favorite meatloaf position. He even snoozes in this position sometimes, though he usually stretches out more to take a nap. Henry came to live with his Lady in 2005 when he was just a little kitten. His Lady found him at a shelter and knew right away that he was the one for her. He is a ginger cat, but much lighter in color than most ginger cats. Henry is declawed on all four feet. He is a bit of a biter, but he doesn't bite very hard. He does like to surprise his Lady in the night by biting her toes. There are two things that Henry loves most: tuna and catnip mousies. He closes his eyes when he eats tuna, to savor the flavor to the utmost. Henry will lick and lick his catnip mouse until it is really soggy. This grosses out his Lady a bit, but Henry never loses interest in a mouse until the catnip is totally inactive. Then his nice lady will buy him some new ones. Henry also likes tents and now has six of them. This is great for him, because he really doesn't like to be in a tent with another cat. Henry isn't much of a snuggler with Clyde and Charlotte, though they do make up a nap pile occasionally. Henry says this is just to keep warm. Henry is very touchy about where anyone can pet him. He only likes head scritches. He will bite if anyone touches his back, tummy or ears.

                                 Henry loves his mousies with nip.
                                 Licking them gives him quite a trip.
                                               They get really wet
                                               But you can bet
                                 That Henry won't give up his mousies with nip.

Well, at least he doesn't bite toesies hard, but still. Can you imagine how his mom must jump at night when he does that?
