Henry, the well-known long-haired tuxedo cat whose YouTube moniker was Henri, le Chat Noir, has made us giggle for a couple of decade along with his cattitude-filled movies and an eponymous guide.
Sadly, the beloved kitty crossed over the Rainbow Bridge in December at age 17. He will likely be missed, however, fortunately, we will endlessly get pleasure from Henri’s movies, the place a French-speaking voiceover backed by melancholy piano music complains about life and one among his people: Will Braden, a Seattle man Henri known as the Thieving Filmmaker.
“His character existed to make folks giggle — that’s a very good legacy to have,” Will says. The true-life Henry — who belonged to Braden’s mom, Kathleen — was a laid-back, glad cat, which made it straightforward to movie him, he says.
“I needed to say goodbye to the pet, my pal — and I needed to say goodbye to the character that I created,” Will says. “That was further tough.”
