And, this is who he hooked me up with! Everydoggie, meet my NOMSS Friend, Henry Helton, the King of Downing Street!!
Don't let the glowing eyes freak you! He's just getting a little attitude with his hooman Lady! (He's saucy that way).
Here's a more sedate look at KING HENRY.
I asked Henry how he came to be with his hoomans (he calls them his beans, hehehe), and here is his story in his own words.
"Well, when I was a month old, some beans put me in a box and dropped me and my little baby brother on the steps at the animal shelter in the middle of the night. I was there to greet their employees in the morning when they got to work. Those mean beans didn't even put any food or water in the box with us. They just taped it up and dropped us on the steps.
"A week later, My Lady came looking for a new kitten. It was love at first site for us. I started meowing my head off as soon as I saw her. I knew she was the one for me. The worker lady wouldn't let her take me. She said that I was too weak and it was too soon. My Lady said no way, I want him, let me have him. She begged the woman (literally) and the woman finally gave in. That is when I came to live at Downing Street where I am the King."
And look. Remember my gigantic stuffie, Fernando? Henry has him too!
Just so you all can get to know him better, I asked Henry to play a little MEME game, and here are his answers.
What would you change about your life?
"I would change my size. I am full grown, but only eight pounds. This is very small for a mancat. I would love to be huge, like twenty pounds or so. I would get all the kittyladies. Now, I am smaller than most of them which makes it hard to get a girlfriend."
If you could spend the day doing anything you want, what would it be and with whom would you do it?
"Well, My Lady has been saying that she was going to buy Clyde and I a leash and harness so she could take us outside. I would love to spend the entire day outside. I have only been out a few times. It was scary, very scary, but I think it would be okay with a leash. It just smells so good out there and I like the wind blowing in my fur. I would love to spend most of it trying to catch me a critter, either a bird or a mouse. Now, all I get to chase are flies and it is not very fun."
"We do not like to be chased by animals forty times our size. It is very scary! I like to chase my brother and he likes to chase me, but we are almost the same size. We also are able to stop our bodies from moving as soon as we want to. Doggies seem to tell themselves to stop, but their bodies just keep going and they run over kitties like bowling balls. We are not bowling pins, we are cute, fluffy kitties and should be treated as such."
