life 9 1/2, 9 3/4, 9 5/8...

Henry is on the way out, but apparently intends to go out in style. My cousin found him outside her house the other night and was wondering how he got there. He has access to the (second story) deck, but she found him hanging out in the front yard. He has been taking the air quite a bit this week, it seems.

This evening we saw him in action. He perched at the edge of the deck, and took his time, looking below. Then, one swift JUMP and he was down, making his way to the front stoop and a towel-lined box to cuddle up in. He may not have much time left, may just be practically skin and bones, but this Brooklyn street cat has definitely chosen to go out with a bang and not a whimper. Rock on, Henry.
