Obituary of Henrietta Henry Mulaev
Please share a memory of Henrietta to include in a keepsake book for family and friends.
Henry was born in our house in 2010. She was Maine Coon mix and was very talkative since young age. Her mother used to teach her and other kittens to hunt outside and they would often bring small mice as presents to us. Henry had kittens of her own too until we spayed her. She was a very caring cat. She would sit and purr by us if we were sick. But she was not lap cat at all. She was always nearby and keeping company and following you around the house with her bushy tail. She loved tuna and disliked canned food. When we moved to South Jersey, she would go outside every night and come back early in the morning by jumping on the roof and scratching the window. One time she brought a bunny with her but we had to let the bunny go unhurt. Henry never ate any mice and was afraid of one bird that happened to fly into the house. One time she came home limping after her night escapades. She was in pain, we figured she fought with the neighborhood fox. At the clinic they stitched her up under general anesthesia. She could not sit up straight but stayed vigilant nevertheless. What a fighter she was! She did get better and after that incident we chose just to keep her indoors. One time she ran out of the house and was missing for 5 days. We searched for her at all local shelters, but turned out she stayed under neighbor’s porch. We lured her back in with her old litter and tuna! LOL! Henry disliked the dogs that we got later on and preferred to stay away from them by living on the upper floors of the house. She would sleep with us, knead our blankets, purr, eat, drink, and snore loudly at night. Then one day at 13 years young she suddenly decided to cross the rainbow bridge. We love her very much and will miss her! She was the most beautiful and intelligent cat ever!
