Grendel Cheshire the Kitten
Well I've only had him a few days. I found him and his sister trapped with his mother on our back porch. We let the mother out but she left him and his sister. On 4/19/11 we put him and his sister in a basket and put them outside. I think his mother got his sister but he was left there. We're not sure how old he is, a little over a month maybe, He's tiny though. As of right now our favorite thing to do is snuggle. He's trying to climb onto my shoulder to cuddle against my face. :] I think he wants my full attention. He keeps meowing in my ear. :) Now he's on my chest and is purring.
I know someone will ask about his name. I have a 10 month old Catahoula mix named Beowulf, so i thought it would be a good idea to name him Grendel. Plus it's playing off how a lot of people think dogs and cats interact. (For those that don’t know Beowulf kills Grendel in the poem, but I'm not going to let my Beowulf hurt this Grendel).
The second part of his name is obviously from Alice in Wonderland. And while I love the famous grinning Kitty just for being from the Stories, he’s named this because he grins when i touch him. He's an extremely affectionate kitten, and is trying to get into my bra.
He's also funny. He likes to relax when I snuggle him and if I touch him just right he'll roll just enough to slide down my stomach. He also likes to get in the most awkward spot on my body and fall asleep. Right now he's on my collarbone and is purring in my ear. He also has the funniest facial expressions. He's being bottle-fed and if I don't hold the bottle just right he looks at me with a "Should I claw her, or should I relax and roll" type of look.
All in all, He's an awesome Kitty.
