WAFFLES: Hey Boss, there's something wrong with my food dish.
KATIE: What's wrong with it?
KATIE: That's because you already ate.
KATIE: *he says with food stuck to corner of mis mouth* Maybe if you took more than 60 seconds for breakfast, you're remember eating it.
WAFFLES: Maybe Glogirly will forget I ate it and give me another.
Waffles the Speed EaterEvery morning and every evening Katie and Waffles are each served 1/4 cup of their protein du jour. Often rabbit. (sorry, Thumper) Katie takes between 12-13 minutes to finish her food. Yes, we've timed it. If you were to watch her (and listen to her) as she eats, you'd swear she was devouring her food. She's a very enthusiastic eater, which is music to Glogirly's ears considering her previous problems with IBD and GI sensitivities.
Waffles is also an enthusiastic eater. But what takes Katie 13 minutes to finish takes him less than 60 seconds. Waffles' all time speed eating record is holding strong at 46 seconds.
We know what you're thinking. Nope, he has never thrown up his food. Ever. Not only that, he frequently enjoys a post dinner game of the zoomies. If he were a human he could eat a whole pepperoni pizza, two chili dogs and ride the roller coaster. The orange boy has an iron stomach.
It's funny - the Farm cats browse. I think they might be part goat. They eat a little they go out. They come back, they eat a little. They nap. They eat a little.ReplyDelete
Boodie's the one here who wolfs down her food. Binga is more like Katie. I'm somewhere in between... and I chew on my plate, if it's one of the paper ones.ReplyDelete
Your pictures are incredible ... just INCREDIBLE. Bear's a speed eater too. At first, I thought it was the former homeless kitten in him, but 10 years later, he still eats like he thinks the food is going to get up and run away. And unlike Waffles, his comes back up. The one I just don't understand is when I fill his kibble bowl. He always has kibble. But I top off the bowl and he chows down like he hasn't had kibble in days ... YEARS! Ugh.ReplyDelete
I'm a speed eater too!ReplyDelete
Our Dusty eats and eats and eats!!!!!! But he's of the Katie school!ReplyDelete
I have one that is a speed eater too. He might miss something you know. LOL. Have a great day.ReplyDelete
Must be something to do with the name Bear, ours is a speed eater too. But he is also a scarfer and barfer.ReplyDelete
Have you considered a puzzle feeder to slow him down?ReplyDelete
I'm the speed eater hereReplyDelete

Sadie could race Waffles--she sticks her head in the bowl like she's never eaten before. And she's only puked about 6 times in nearly 8 years. Amazing.ReplyDelete
Now That is really fast!ReplyDelete
That sounds so familiar ! Zorro needs less than 3 minutes to eat 1/3 of his daily huge amount of food, while Pixie needs 10 minutes for her own tiny portion. PurrsReplyDelete
Waffles, that is some fast eating, dude! Katie, it sounds like you eat in the style of Zoe ... slow and steady, and come back later...ReplyDelete
Wow, 60 seconds? He must really like his food! As always, great photos and captions.ReplyDelete
We're really slow eaters. The mom wishes we would speed it up.ReplyDelete
It takes me about 2 hours to eat mine. I eat a little then go off for a nap then eat a bit more, and so it goes. If I haven't finished in 2 hours it gets thrown out. Sometimes when I am going through a good phase I will eat 3/4 of it in one go, but that takes me 15-20 minutes.ReplyDelete
Roxie is a speed eater, too, until one of the other cats appears and she runs off, becoming a speed puker. So now she has her own private dining room in my bathroom.ReplyDelete
I need to time Mudpie's eating some day...I think she might be competition for you, Katie!ReplyDelete
I would have indy-gestion if I ate that fast!ReplyDelete
That is a big difference in times.ReplyDelete
Waffles, savor your food!ReplyDelete
Saku is our speed eater but he certainly can't been Waffles record. (He does throw up sometimes). Mom bean has to keep an eye on us while we eat because if she doesn't Saku will eat ours too!ReplyDelete
