Henri, le Chat Noir; Reflections on Human Folly from a Feline Philosopher

Henri, le Chat Noir is the world's foremost feline philosopher. With over 15 million views on YouTube and a bestselling debut book, his ennui has been shared with many otherwise well-adjusted people around the world. 

Henri's first book holds a 5-star rating on Amazon, even though life may, in fact, be meaningless. You can see it here: http://www.amazon.com/Henri-Chat-Noir-Existential-Angst-Filled/dp/1607745100

Now, Henri is returning to provide more feline insight in a new book. This time, he is specifically addressing the folly of humanity. To truly understand the absurdity of human existence, you must view it through the eyes of a philosopher cat.

This Kickstarter is to raise funds for the initial printing of Henri's new self-published book. The amount of the initial printing will depend on the total amount backed for this project, but MANY more will be printed than needed to fulfill all the backers's rewards, so there will be no snafus. Not that this will dissuade your spiritual malaise. 

The format of the book will be a little different from Henri's previous work. About half the book will be in a similar style to the first book, with photos and accompanying captions and thoughts. As an example:

The remainder of the book will contain essays, poems and other writings, all from the feline philosopher himself. This book will be virtually the same size and length as the first book (about 5"x 8" and 96 pages) but this time around it will be softcover. Still the same high quality photos and printing, of course.

As with all of Henri's products and endeavors, 10% of all sales will go directly to cats in need via local shelters and animal welfare organizations.

Remember that contributing to this Kickstarter may not fill the void in your soul, or curtail the nagging feeling that our life is devoid of purpose. But it will make you look smart when you leave the new book on your coffee table. 

Risks and challenges

Life is cruelly devoid of any discernible purpose. So that might be a problem.
