Henry the Cat

The Story of Henry the Cat

Have you ever read a book and wished you could have a piece of it to hold onto forever? That’s exactly what our client wanted when they approached us with the idea of creating a plush toy to accompany their book, “Henry the Cat”. But this wasn’t just any plush toy – it had to capture the essence of Henry, a fat, lazy, and ponderous cat who is obsessed with cupcakes and cream, but sees himself as a posh, well-rounded, and laid-back cat.

We knew this project wouldn’t be easy. Capturing Henry’s plump look and recreating his distinctive coloring and markings was no small feat. We scoured through many fur options and sources to find the perfect look and feel for his coat, and embroidered the pads on his feet to his specific likeness and found the perfect matching eyes to finish off the masterpiece.

We were thrilled to have been a part of this project, and hope that Henry brings joy and comfort to all who hold him close.
