What makes Grendel so mean?
Though “Grendel” is a very fitting name, I decided maybe Mr. Hyde was a better one. One moment he’s purring like a motorboat in your ear, the next he’s knocking the mirror off of the wall. You’ll know when the episodes are about to come because his previously twinkling eyes turn into cold, black slits. He becomes unresponsive to your cooing and calling and immediately goes into Search and Destroy mode. Anything that can be pulled, smashed or ripped apart is quickly disemboweled in his tornado of sudden fury.
There are two poses he assumes before scaling the velvet curtains or peeing on the bed: 1) Gargoyle (pictured above): comes in handy when he is in higher places, scaling the room for something to sink his teeth into (i.e. the skulls of my friends) and 2) Gremlin: specific to covered areas of the house (such as drawers or trashcans) where he can lurk in the darkness until some unsuspecting victim strolls by, blind to the impending doom that awaits his/her Achilles tendon. Did I mention he sharpens his claws on bare legs, drinks out of the toilet, shreds the toilet paper and digs in the trashcan for used *ahem* unmentionables, which he then hides for people as presents?
Nonetheless, he is incredibly intelligent and sweet half of the time. You just have to know when to duck.
