WAFFLES: The big race is today and I've been training super hard to get ready for it.
WAFFLES: The Boss may have me beat at spelling and counting. She can run stairs really fast too. But when it comes to eating, I leave her in the dust. Did you know it takes her a whole FIFTEEN minutes to finish her breakfast?
KATIE: Apparently Waffles, you don't know the meaning of savoring your food.
WAFFLES: Boss, you savor your breakfast so much it's like you're savoring it for later. I can eat mine in 30 seconds!
KATIE: Fine. Eat your breakfast.

About Today's Photos & Video
It's true. Waffles is a Speed Eater. Breakfast, dinner, it doesn't matter. If he takes longer than 60 seconds, it's like he's eating in slow motion. Katie on the other hand is a slow eater. And because Waffles is also a food thief, Katie has started taking her meal service in the powder room. Glogirly has to set the kitchen timer so she doesn't forget to let Katie out. 15 minutes. Championship Slow Eater of the highest order.
Just in case you think we're cheating...
Admittedly, we did speed up the video to 2X the actual speed. But since Waffles starts eating at 0:06 and finishes at 0:32, that means it actually took him only 52 seconds to eat his breakfast.
Wow Waffles, you are a champ at that! Sometimes Callie eats fast but sometimes she takes her time. I guess it just depends on how hungry she is.ReplyDelete
Waffles! I hope you burp after eating that fast.ReplyDelete
Waffles! Do you get burpy or get the hiccups from eating so fast?!?!ReplyDelete
Love how Waffles does one last lick around the bowl at the end to make sure he didn't leave anything!ReplyDelete
I'm a speed eater too!ReplyDelete
Silly boy, listen to Katie, savor the noms!ReplyDelete
Waffles, we think the you should savor your food too! That was sooooooooo fast!!!ReplyDelete
Nobody here eats as fast as Waffles! But we chow down at a pretty good clip.ReplyDelete
GO, Waffles! Waffles, being a speed eater myself I just had t o see your vid, so clicked the magic button & we could see it on our IMAC. Good job!!!! I feel better now about being a speed eater (I leave pokey Paprika in the dust) and my human has had to resort to devious tricks like watering down my food to keep me in line. Whereas Paprika can have all she wants. Not fair! Signed, Peaches the CatReplyDelete
Whoa! That was something, Waffles! We don't wanna be in an eating contest with you!ReplyDelete
Impressive chowing down, Waffles. If my cats ate that fast, the foods would be coming back up with equal speed! Katie is such a refined lady cat.ReplyDelete
Waffles, when it comes to speed eating treats, Shakespeare is the champion! He also tries to steal Hemingway's treats. Must be the "orangeness"!!!ReplyDelete
we don't know Waffles....we got a momma cat here that may be able to give you a run for your money :)ReplyDelete
Jessie is a speed eater too! Momma has to watch us while we eat so she doesn't come and steal from my bowl.ReplyDelete
I think you could go head to head with Sadie. She is quite the eater!ReplyDelete
This was too cute and funny. Maybe you need more food Waffles, MOL. Lilly is the speed eater in our family. PurrsReplyDelete
I think Muffin with a can of cat food eats faster. I'll have to record it and see. (she doesn't get canned food often so she tends to gulp it right down)ReplyDelete
Hah, hah! He even licks the bowl clean ;-)ReplyDelete
Impressive ! We eat by visiting our bowls 3 or 4 times within two hours. PurrsReplyDelete
OH my CAT Waffles you are a hoover not a cat - that is superior eating Champ! You are like our Dad he is a fast eater!!! Mum takes her time a la Katie!!ReplyDelete
Silver and the Dash Kitten Crew
Roxie eats so fast if the other cats are in the room, then she pukes....now she dines alone!ReplyDelete
Wow! I feel dizzy just watching you eat so fast, Waffles. It takes me about 2 hours of eating a bit here and a bit there, and I never completely finish a bowl of food.ReplyDelete
Good grief, Waffles! Do you get indigestion??? Katie, I bet Mudpie would be stiff competition for you in a "slow eater" competition!ReplyDelete
YIKES, my tummy would be doing flip flops if I ate that fast! I like to take my time. Derby was the chow hound, inhale food, and sometimes, yak it right back up.ReplyDelete
Saku is like Waffles, he inhales his food and then tries to take ours. Mom bean has to stay in the kitchen and watch to make sure we get to finish ours.ReplyDelete
Sasha, Sami, & Saku
LAND SPEED RECORD! Dood, we totally gotta have an eat-off! ~MaxwellReplyDelete
