Oh my goodness, I can't stop laughing!!! Cher Henri est magnifique! I'm telling you, YouTube has some of the cleverest pet videos. I guess I'll have to find that "French for Cats" book I used to have and give the boys classes.
I hope that the kind people who have fostered Dot post about her progress again. It sounds as though they really have the knowledge to help her adjust to her situation and develop as much as possible. Thanks for posting about her. I can't wait to see her with her mobility cart. She'll probably be a little terror racing around the house.
The last time I saw a real life cat do this, I tried a harness on one of my long-ago kitties. She reacted as though she was a put-upon character in a melodrama and I was Snidely Whiplash. Pretty amusing, though she never seemed to grasp the concept of "let's go for a walk on a leash." She would merely look at me as if to say, "What fresh hell is this?"
Other than that one flaw in our relationship, we got along fine.
If anyone's interested, I learned about a $1,000 "Catification" Shelter Makeover contest where you can vote for one of ten finalists of shelters around the country that take in and care for kitties but are in need of renovations. (You don't need to register or sign up for anything):
