Curious about how Henri became Megan’s feline companion, we asked her to share the story. Megan shared, “It was during the early days of the COVID-19 pandemic, right after I turned 18. After years of pleading for a cat – despite my parents being lifelong dog lovers – they finally agreed to let me have one! Being a strong advocate for adopting and rescuing animals, I immediately began searching local humane societies and shelters for kittens. Just a few days into my search, I stumbled upon Henri (then known as Minx) and his siblings at the nearest humane society. I wasted no time in submitting my application! Following some virtual interviews with the shelter staff to ensure he was a good match, I was thrilled to find that Henri’s personality and demeanor were exactly what I was looking for.”

When asked about the origins of the name Henri, Megan shared a quirky story. She grew up in Ontario but had a deep love for the ocean, spending a lot of time in Quebec with her family. The name came from a person who once dog-sat for them in a small Quebec town. Although the moment wasn’t particularly memorable, Megan’s family found humor in the way the name was pronounced with a French accent, making it an inside joke. When selecting a name, Megan wanted something that conveyed a sense of sophistication and masculinity, which is why Henri was the perfect fit.

Henri also has a furry friend named Chihiro by his side, as seen in the image credits to mycatwitheyebrows. When asked about their relationship, Megan shared, “Yes! I’ve always had a variety of small pets and now have Chihiro as Henri’s companion. I took careful steps to introduce another cat to Henri’s space, researching and going slow. Matching their genders, they initially communicated through the door before finally meeting. Surprisingly, they hit it off right away! Henri is mellow, enjoying his naps and grooming, while Chihiro is more energetic and outgoing. Together, they balance each other out perfectly!” Henri and Chihiro enjoy their time outside as well.

“They have become inseparable now. Whenever I try to leave the room with one of them, the other starts screaming! They are so attached, always cuddling together on their favorite chair or my bed. Henri seems thrilled to have a brother, always eager to explore new things and make friends with other pets. They are truly the sweetest cats.”

We were curious about the outdoor escapades Megan’s felines relish, and here’s what she shared with us: “I’m a nature enthusiast and love being outdoors. When the weather is nice, you’ll most likely find me outside, and whenever possible, I try to involve my cats in my adventures! Bird watching is one of my favorite activities, and it seems like my cats enjoy it just as much as I do. Harness training is on my list for them in the future, but for now, they’re getting accustomed to their stroller, which they’re enjoying. I’m also looking forward to setting up a catio soon! I believe it’s important to keep cats indoors for their safety and the protection of local wildlife and ecosystems. However, I understand how crucial it is for cats to have outdoor experiences for their well-being and enrichment.”
