Paw de Deux …I purr therefore I am …

If it’s Friday, it must be France …

This is a cat that gets around! This week two dear friends introduced me to Henri, the existential cat, on their fabulous blogs. Naomi Bulger in Melbourne, Australia and Tamari Etherton in California both featured this video  so you may have already seen it. I just know you are going to want to watch it again, right? How can you not?

For those who haven’t had the pleasure, enjoy it now. I simply had to share it with you! Trés amusant! (I’ve only watched it about a dozen times so far … just love him!)

Here’s the original video of Henri as he first shared his philosophical angst.

If you fell in love with him, as I did, you can also follow him on Facebook and Twitter.


The internet never ceases to amaze me. Whether you want to be educated or entertained the choices appear to be infinitessimal.  I particularly like it when something causes me to laugh out loud ! Was there something you came across online this week that really rocked your world? Henri certainly rocked mine thanks to Naomi and Tamari!

Patricia Sands lives in Toronto, Canada when she isn't somewhere else, particularly the south of France. With a happily blended family of seven adult children and, at last count, six grandchildren, life is full and time is short. Beginning with her first Kodak Brownie camera at the age of six, she has told stories all of her life through photography. Much to her surprise a few years ago, she began to write and has now published three novels, including two that are part of a six-book series set in the south of France. Love France? Love her work! Check out her website She is particularly drawn to the rewarding friendships of women and the challenges many embrace once their families are grown. "It's never too late to begin something new," she enthuses. "As the saying goes, just do it!"

  1. LOL Amber. I don’t know if I am just late to the party but I had never heard of Henri until this week. His “ennui” goes straight to my heart. Jean Paul Sartre would be proud!

  2. Very good. Wouldn’t **quite** work the same way in English, would it? There’s something about that lassitude in the French accent that just gets to you. Very Sartre-esque, I agree. Lovely post, thanks for introducing me to Henri.

  3. Very cute! Aside from my cat being a short-haired cat, they resemble each other. I can imagine mine thinking pretty much the same way. Thanks for sharing, Patricia!

  4. J’adore Henri! I didn’t get a chance to see the original, so this was a treat for me. I hope you had a fantastic weekend!!

    My husband just told me today that the next cat we get needs to be like Henri. Really? My husband is an odd one.

It's always good to hear to from you!
