I’ve already relayed my love for grumpy-anything. When I was a kid, my favourite cartoon characters usually had some sort of cloud-over-their-head outlook on life. Think of Disney’s Donald Duck or The Care Bear’s Grumpy. So no surprise, I love Henri The Existential Cat. He’s actually my favourite of all the Internet cats.
In the third episode called “Le Vet”, Henri visits a doctor and ponders whether his entire life is a sham. He’s having a hard time dealing with his newfound status as a viral video cat, but a demeaning visit to the vet doesn’t do anything to cure his disillusionment of the world.
Combined with Will Braden’s “The Good and Bad Heart,” Henri makes me question a lot of things in this life and reinforces that we should all be true to ourselves. We also get a glimpse of a secondary character, a fluffy white “imbecile” cat who’s colluding with the caretakers. Drama! [Source]
