sleepyvery active
not curiousvery curious
not vocalvery vocal

Quick Bio:
-pound cat-cat rescue

Giving snuzzles (aka headbutts), his dog brother Leko, biting grandma's ankles, sleeping with his nose in shoes

Having Abbie pin him down and bite his head, belly rubs that last too long, closed bathroom doors with humans on the other side

Favorite Toy:
Boxes, paper bags

Favorite Nap Spot:
Mom's pillow after she's out of bed, on top of the laundry hamper in front of the window in the bedroom, in any box, on any shoe, especially if it was recently removed from a human's foot.

Favorite Food:
Tuna is yum, as is the dogs' food, especially the Glucosamine tablets.

We use the term "snuzzle" for his headbutts because they're just so darn affectionate and frequent.


Arrival Story:
We thought our cat at the time, Betty, would like a buddy. We went to the animal shelter looking for a kitten. All of the other kittens shrunk back in their cages when we walked by, but Grendel stayed right at the front, pawing at us and meowing. When we took him out of his cage, he rolled over in my lap for a belly rub. We knew then and there that he was going home with us! He was our $15 bargain.

Grendel is more like a dog than a cat. He greets us when we arrive home, follows us around the house, loves the dogs more than the cats, and greets new people by jumping up, placing his paws on them and giving a giant stretch. He even bites on occasion, but for some reason he mainly bites his grandma - he really loves her!
