Henry’s Reflection

Personal Reflection for: Henry
By Carolyn Page
Date: August 9th 2012

What can we tell you about Henry? We can tell you that he would rather be anything other than he is. You see, Henry suffers from ‘little’ syndrome.

And what is ‘little’ syndrome?

Little syndrome is not a medical condition, no dear friends; it is not a medical condition; it is a ‘heart’ condition. You see Henry suffers from lack.

And, what is lack?

Lack is a limitation.

And what is Henry’s limitation.

Henry’s limitation is a lack of love. Yes, that is right, dear friends. Henry suffers from heart problems. You see, he is the least of three (and many more). You see, Henry does not feel that he belongs. Isn’t this very sad, dear friends. Yes, this is right. Henry feels that he does not belong, and this causes him much grief. His grief is evident in his loneliness. He will often be on his own. This is not something that he enjoys, but rather it is foisted upon him by his position in the family. This occurs in human families too. One child may be ‘on top’, and most of the attention is poured onto them. Another child within the family will be ignored to a major degree. This proves itself to be very harmful to the child in question and, so too, this occurs within Henry’s cat family; he is ostracized to a major degree.

What can be done to assist Henry? Nothing really. His family are responsible for this happening and only they can improve the situation. Unfortunately for Henry, until his family dynamics change he will continue to be the ‘least’.

We shall leave this sad story here, hoping that all who read will appreciate the journey that Henry suffers.

Editor’s (Dad’s) note:

Hi Carolyn, we love your Reflections, and within his ‘Cat’ family you may be right about our Henry.
But, dear fur-friends, what is missing here is that Henry is not really a cat!
He is a dog stuck in a cat’s body. He is ‘barking’ mad, wants and gets attention as if his name was Fido, would probably chase a ball or a stick on the right day, and basically runs the place.
If Henry has ‘small’ syndrome, it is ‘Small Dog’ syndrome! He’s a yappy, happy bugger and he wants everyone to know it.
It’s just that Archie and Oscar don’t always want to know. They’re cats, not dogs, after all!

  1. Awww Henry… Can I come play with you?

  2. Henry sounds to be masking the best of his situation. If the cats don’t want to play, go get a ball and give the humans some exercise!

  3. That’s a lovely pic of Henry….. He’s a cutie… 😉

  4. Aaw,e Henry, come here. I’ll give you some scratched behind the ear!

  5. Just as I was feeling really sorry for Henry, along came the editors note and now it all makes sense. At least he gets human attention and, if he insists on playing like a dog, well, cats just don’t seem to like that much. My dog tries to get the cats to play all the time and they look at her with pure horror.

  6. Henry…possibly my Mi-Mi knows a little how you feel, for she is happy, but alone most of the time. She follows me around, not unlike a puppy follows his master. Mi is perhaps the smallest of the three, physically, but I believe she has a big heart. So, dear Henry, do not fret, for you have a “soul sister” across the Pound!

  7. I know Henry is just fine and that he may talk lots, but all you guys look purrfectly fine to me! paw pats, Savannah ps Mom says she will post Archie’s interview the first Tuesday of September. I got a doggie interview and will post it next Tuesday…I have enough cat and dog furriends willing to be interviewed that I can do two post per month! paw hugs to all of you, Savannah (and Mom)
