"That fat old tabby never went into the woods! He's hardly been beyond his own garden since his trip to the vet. All he wants to do is eat and sleep."
Rusty to Smudge about Henry in Into the Wild, page 11

Henry is a plump tabby tom.[2]


In The Prophecies Begin arc

Into the Wild

Henry does not formally appear, but Rusty and Smudge mention him when Rusty is about to venture out and explore the forest territory of the Clans.
Smudge informs Rusty that Henry went into the forest once, and caught a robin. Rusty responds in disbelief, saying that Henry had never been into the woods before on account of being too lazy to do much after his trip to the vet, and would have nothing to do with birds since, as he complains that they disturb his dozing. Rusty claims that if Henry really did go into the woods, then it was before his trip to the vet when he was neutered, because, since then, he's been lazy and hasn't done much of anything except eat and sleep. Henry had told Smudge stories of the wild warrior cats, depicting them as huge wild cats that eat live rabbits for breakfast and sharpen their claws on old bones. These stories lead to Smudge's fear of forest cats, imagining them as mindless barbarians.



"Henry told me there are all sorts of dangerous animals out there. Huge wildcats who eat live rabbits for breakfast and sharpen their claws on old bones!"
—Smudge about Henry's stories Into the Wild, page 11

Smudge: "No, really, he caught a robin there!"
Rusty: "Well, if he did, then it was before the vet. Now he complains about birds because they disturb his dozing."

"But Henry's all right. I mean, I know he's a bit lazier now, but he's not unhappy. We could still have fun."
—Smudge trying to have Rusty stay Into the Wild, page 28
