Henri 2 Paw de Deux
Following on from my ‘Waiting for Godot‘ type poem, we have this totally hilarious video of Henri the existential cat:)

Henri the existential cat, meow, video, what does it all mean, youtube

“I’m surrounded by morons” – hahahaha – that’s eactly what cats think, I’m sure (the ending is a bit meow-ow-ow – poor cat)
April 19, 2012 at 4:57 pm
haha – the looks of derision, despair and hauntiness etc., on that cat’s face are priceless bluebee 🙂

I’ve started the day with a smile on my face!
That’s good Martin 🙂

Love the video. I have two cats and can see them thinking the same thoughts.

Cats are real characters (so are dogs, just in different ways) – thanks Helen 🙂

Thanks Terry 🙂

Outstanding. I love this clip – the voice over is perfect…the tone of dry angst
April 19, 2012 at 4:59 pm
Yes, ‘dry angst’ it is Jane 🙂

Oh such a brilliant video….I was laughing throughout the film…thanks for starting my day so well.
I can’t stop watching it slpmartin – just wonderful 🙂

Henri is so profoundly sad. The locked cat door at the end was the last straw.Ugh! And the obnoxious sycophantic white cat! We always have one of those in the mix.

I knew you would like the cat video squirrel – haha – what a beautiful pussy cat 🙂
April 19, 2012 at 1:20 am
I might add that little does Henri know that he is the most loved. Tuxedo cats always are.
Of course 😉
April 19, 2012 at 5:55 am
I love the accent too.
April 19, 2012 at 5:02 pm
Yes! I think the accent is superbe Benedicte – I have a great desire to do a video of my two dogs with my fake french accent over the top – haha – would be too painful I think, but you never know (if only I knew how to edit video – arrgh).

Gabrielle, you have made my evening. This is genius 🙂
April 19, 2012 at 5:03 pm
Love that you loved it Kate 🙂
April 19, 2012 at 9:15 am
I know just how that cat feels! (Very cute video)
haha – so do I Aletha, so do I 😉
April 19, 2012 at 12:20 pm
haha wahwah i dont know whether to laugh or cry -but i laughed…a lot hahahahaha
April 19, 2012 at 5:04 pm
hahaha – purrfect indeed tipota 🙂

Poor cat after head butting the cat-flap. What a loss of dignity 🙂
April 20, 2012 at 6:02 pm
It certainly is Pseu – I once ran into a screen door which I failed to see and the whole thing came out of the door and we both fell on the floor – that too was a loss of dignity – haha – and very noisy. Thanks for stopping by my bloggedy blog 🙂

Henri – vraiment un chat magnifique! (He’s on Twitter too!)
April 22, 2012 at 10:28 am
That’s where I found him Juliet and retweeted 🙂
April 23, 2012 at 4:51 am
oh of course you did Gabrielle! I think a few people have been tweeting him recently!
April 23, 2012 at 12:16 am
Aaah Henri, you have summed up life so well that a single tear of recognition ran down my cheek as I watched you considering the drab tedium of existence. Such is life, mon ami.
April 23, 2012 at 3:49 pm
haha – Henri is having it tough Selma! I want that cat 🙂
April 24, 2012 at 9:29 am
Hee! Love Henri. That video absolutely cracked me up. 🙂
April 24, 2012 at 1:19 pm
Hello Thomma Lyn 🙂 I knew you would love the puddy tat – haha
May 9, 2012 at 5:48 am
the languid voice and the clever poem and the perfect cat – ‘rien a faire’ – I loved it!
Ca a fait passer le temps..

Thanks for stopping by davidstrachan611 🙂 He is the perfect cat – those very unimpressed looks at the camera – haha
