Ever heard of the Internet Cat Film Festival?
The Daily Mail reports that on August 31, 2012, at the Walker Art Center in Minneapolis, Minnesota, over 10,000 cat lovers came out in full force to see “Henri 2, Paw de Deux” beat thousands of popular Internet feline videos to win the coveted Golden Kitty award.
“I am free to go. Yet I remain”
“I alone feel this torment”
“I wake to the same tedium”
“We cannot escape ourselves”
“I’m surrounded by morons”
The Thoughts of Henri
Well, I am still here. I have grown my fluffy coat for the cold winter, like a Tsar’s robe. It requires a certain delicate maintenance.
I am free to go. Yet I remain. The 15 hours a day I sleep have no effect. I wake to the same tedium. Immortalized on the wall. Forgotten on the floor.
When my caretakers step here they become irate. Yet I feel nothing. They leave tasty snacks just out of reach. They taunt me mercilessly. I alone feel this torment. The white idiot writhes on his chair, begging for cheeseburgers. I’m surrounded by morons. “Pay attention to the cat.” Not that they ever do.
Still, I have learned a few things. The whipped cream in the bathroom isnot whipped cream. We cannot escape ourselves. And sometimes the cat door . . . is closed.
