He is very social and enjoys visiting with the people who come to the shelter, but is often content to kick back and relax so if you visit the shelter, you are likely to find him napping in a cat tree or hanging out near a window in the adoption room. Henry would make a great addition to a loving family. Henry is neutered, up to date on vaccines, and micro-chipped!
