Both devoted "dog only" people, they were sure there would never be room in their life for a cat. But in the months following the fire, many needed housing and they were happy to share their second home with those in need. One family, who is still there today, asked if their little girl could have a kitty--that is where Henry's journey began: a four-legged healthy feral kitten with three sisters arrived in Pine Hills. The following week, he had some sort of accident and was dragging his left paw uselessly behind him. A quick trip to the Julian veterinarian made the plight of the kitty clear: euthanasia or amputation. If amputation was the choice, he could no longer be an outdoor mountain cat; he would need an indoor home. It didn't seem possible that he could find his home with this dog-only family, but that seemed to be the only option~at least while recovering from surgery. Poor kitty, he was so shocked to be in the world where he was confined, where he could no longer play in his leaves and climb trees, that "he" wrote a letter to 20 of his new family's friends describing this strange new move in his life. They sent the letter out for him, and those receiving it sent it on to others. More letters followed, more fans of Henry were collected. Henry landed in a home of healers, so he was destined to join the family profession. It was explained to him that most animals would not have had the benefit of the amputation and getting a permanent home, so his role was to give back to those less fortunate than he. Fast forward to 2010...Henry has answered over 45,000 letters and written tens of thousands of other documents. Henry wore out the paw of his faithful scribe, Mom Cathy, who has just undergone her third hand surgery to reconstruct the hand damaged from all the computer work. Paws crossed that three is the charm and she will regain the use of her thumb. Henry has his own website: He and his sister Dollydog have books, workbooks, as well as many other educational materials. Three songs have been written Henry and his plush toy clone story and photos from Cathy Conheim for them and crocheted replicas of Henry, Dolly, and their friend Tink are used in the classroom. And since joining cyberspace, Henry has a Facebook page and even an iPhone/iPad app now in development. Over 45,000 of Henry's books are out in the world with all the profits going to help animals and humans in need. Henry's book, What's the Matter with Henry? and the accompanying workbook raises the questions which lead to the discoveries of love and hope. The companion book What About Me? I'm Here Too! addresses the issues of the siblings who feel invisible and lost when someone in the family is in need. Told through Henry's sister, Dolly the dog, What About Me? I'm Here Too! speaks of the feelings of confusion, insecurity, and loss as the daily life of attention, walks and treats is taken over by bandages, medicine and pain. Henry and Dolly's workbooks teach understanding and acceptance. Their important lessons are summarized as "Kibbles for Thought:" Hate is learned Hard things happen Be true to who you are Play the hand you are dealt Connect with what you care about Accept your feelings Share your feelings with someone who loves you Ask for help Nobody's perfect Feelings can change Henry jm (just me) now has an impressive five page resume, more than anyone else in his family! He has been a busy boy in the past five and half years. His second award winning book has been translated into Creole to help with the children's amputee project in Haiti. He has inspired 500 outstanding art pieces by elementary school children in Sacramento. But his greatest honor came last week when he was voted Cat of the Year 2010 the ASPCA. This November 11th, at a luncheon at the Pierre Hotel in NY, a little Julian hometown boy will receive his honors. He is particularly pleased to have this award, as the goals and objectives of the ASPCA are dear to his heart. He hopes he can help them and other animals through the publicity that comes from such an honor. Visit him and write to him at, a great place to do all your Christmas and special occasion shopping: humans get the benefit of his wisdom and animals get the cash!

That job keeps him up until around 3:00 AM. After "four(ish)" hours of sleep, he heads for his other job, as musical director for the Center for Spiritual Living, Temecula Valley. There he coordinates an array of talented guest musicians and accompanies them on piano. John describes the Saturday evening musical fare as a smorgasbord of almost anything people could possibly want to hear (except "Free Bird"), while the Sunday morning music is usually more folky or meditative. "1 am extremely grateful for both gigs, and I love what I do dearly and wouldn't trade it for anything in the world," John explains, "but the swing is pretty drastic and can be a little difficult to maintain at times." The Friday/ Saturday night crowds crams The Marble Room to enjoy the burlesque atmosphere, a stocked bar and a great meal. John's Sunday morning audience fills the Center for Spiritual Living for spiritual growth and renewal. Regardless of the venue, John provides the appropriate music to ensure everyone gets what they came for. In the process, John has been rewarded with an ardent fan base and the joy of accomplishing what he set out to do - make a living with his music. It's been his lifelong desire, something that keeps him so focused he never thinks of any alternative. "For a guy who likes to be prepared for anything, even I, myself, find it odd that perhaps the greatest thing I have learned from being a musician is to never have a 'Plan B'. If there is some option for an out, it will be used someday, no matter how hard you try to avoid it. I know this is my path, and I will always find a way to make it happen," John says with conviction. Like most musicians, John's core beliefs come through in his music. "Although it is not universally true, I prefer to focus my attention on the more positive things in life," John explains. He is a member of the Positive Music Association, a national organization whose mission is to use popular music to improve the quality of people's lives. His spiritual journey has taught him " to always be grateful for what I have, to consider my own personal integrity (and all that it entails) as the only thing I will take with me AND leave behind, and to not take everything in life too seriously." John adds, "Being a part of the Center for Spiritual Living community has definitely improved my connection to the silver lining of most of life's situations, including some of the "doozies" like death and lost love." John thrives on the energy of his audiences. "It sounds trite, but honestly the biggest joy playing music brings me is hearing that I've pleased someone or connected with someone," John explains. "1 know that I like what I do, but to hear it from someone else gives it that extra push into fully feeling like I'm doing exactly what I should be doing for a living," he says. And what about the future? "1 try to keep all avenues open because I never know where an opportunity will come from or where it will lead to, but I do know that I will still be plugging away at this career, and loving every minute of it in 20 years. I don't know exactly what it will look like, but I do know that I will ALWAYS be making music to some extent or another. I already have accomplished my greatest wish: to know that I have chosen the right path. I don't see retirement as something that will happen for me. There will be some kind of professional involvement in music for me until the day I die".
