Ashton would like to take this opportunity to thank whoever invented National Cheese Doodle Day, even though no one seems to know who it was. It’s one of her favorite holidays!
Newton: Oh, boy. A cheese doodle, and it’s all mine!
Ashton: ** tiptoes closer **
Ashton: Slowly back away from the cheese doodle and no one has to get hurt here.
Newton: Your cheese doodle? This is my cheese doodle!
Ashton: If you don’t go right now, I’m going to make sure the head peep finds the broken —
Newton: All right, all right. You can have this one.
Don’t worry, Newton got a cheese doodle, too. He got his stuck to the roof of his mouth and it took him a while to work it free. He was never in any danger or distress, but it isn’t a snack he should eat unattended.
Cats may like occasional snacks of species-inappropriate food, but keep in mind that most human snacks are heavy on the calories, and they aren’t appropriate for more than an occasional taste by your cat.
The cheese doodles Ashton and Newton crunched in these photos are about ten calories each. Ashton ate two during the course of our photo shoot, which is over ten percent of the calories allotted to her daily on her weight loss diet. That’s kind of like you eating almost a whole hot dog and bun. So cheese doodles aren’t regular snacks around here for anyone… but we make an exception now and then for special occasions, like National Cheese Doodle Day!
