Mr Henry Higgins has been adopted by a lovely couple and has taken up residence in a hall, as befitts his name!

This is what Henry would say about himself:  My name is Henry Higgins.

“And I”m an ordinary man,

Who desires nothing more than an ordinary chance,

To live exactly as he likes, and do precisely what he wants.

I”m an average man am I, of no eccentric whim,

Who likes to live his life, free of strife doing whatever he thinks

best for him!”

(From the musical My fair lady! By henry higgins!)

I may not have had the life of the real Henry Higgins. In fact I”ve been living it rough on the streets and couldn”t tell you how long for. But now I”m in a warm, cosy foster home with another cat and humans. I love having my tummy scrunched  and a good old brush  and fuss. And I like to talk to my foster parents about my day!  All in all, I”m a senior chap just looking for a bit of company for the 2nd part of my life, I”m happy to be in the company of other cats! I love cuddles, fuss and your company and I would suit a loving family home please.  I love my snoozes too!   Love From Henry XX
