The book is written in the voice of Henry the Cat. Henry's co-author, Cathy Conheim, says, "One of Henry's puzzlements is about the words and labels that humans use that seems to separate them from each other. He knows he has two people he loves, they are Dr. Mom and Mom Cathy. He feels like a lucky guy. Although he clearly wants to teach that hate is learned he does so with the example of my [Cathy's] being taught to hate cats and pointing out you can only hate what you don't understand."
