MSN Now ^ | 6/24/12

​You can't keep a sad cat down. Henri the existential French cat is back and as glum as ever after his star turn in April. This time, he's going to the vet. "The 'doctor' cures nothing, but they keep sending me," purrs our héro. "The indignity is too much to bear." So is Internet celebrity, which Henri tackles head on, responding to criticism of his mother tongue. "Are my caretakers torturing me for their own amusement?" he finally asks. Oui, Henri, and they're doing a great job.

Not so much a cat person but sent this to someone who very much is, and besides I enjoyed it anyway. Cats sorta are existential, aren’t they? Dogs are more given to Dualistic philosophy based on my observations in the field.

I liked Henri 2 even better than 3. I couldn’t find Henri 1 though, did anyone find it?

Video was so good, I am going to save it to favorites.

Loved the part where he is tormented by the caged snacks.

Too funny!

Henri's Facebook page is fun, too. Here is his comment yesterday:

"I sleep because every time I open my eyes, the world is still there."

One can leave questions. Henri has answered a question I asked.

Existential Cat thinks he's got it rough? HA!

My Cat (a bit less famous, but every bit as pithy) is now on the run from the law!



Later I'll tell you about Smyrgly.
