Leo the Cat Bakes Waffles

<– Back to the beginning of the story

“Meow, I’ll clean that up later,” he thought. He grabbed the mixer and started whisking the dough. 

“Oh my, it’s splattering everywhere!” Leo was covered in batter, but he was happy to lick it off and continued diligently.

As he tasted the dough with his paw, he thought, “Meow, a little more sugar would be good.” Leo kept tasting and adjusting until the dough was nice and sweet.

Now it was time to turn on the waffle iron and cook the waffles. He scooped the batter with the ladle, but he was no longer sure how much to use! The batter spilled onto the countertop. 

“Never mind that,” Leo thought to himself, “I just finished my very first waffle!” It was a little burnt, but Leo ate it with relish. And so it went until several waffles later, the cat grabbed his belly and doubled over in pain. 

“Meow, all those waffles are making my tummy hurt,” he whined. “I need to rest a bit before I clean up.” He climbed up his cat tree with the last of his strength and lay down. But he could hardly relax. 

He looked at the kitchen clock and thought, “Meow, it’s almost 5:00!” The family would be home soon and he still had to clean up.

With a terrible stomach ache, he got up and rinsed all the dishes in the sink and put them away. He mopped the floor furiously and swept it with his tail. But even after all that, everything was still so sticky.

Just as he was done cleaning, he heard the key in the lock and watched as the front door opened. His family called out to him like usual and he heard his mother say in surprise, “It sure smells like waffles in here…”

She went to feed Leo who usually couldn’t get enough of his food. But today, he wouldn’t eat a thing. He was exhausted and his belly was sticky from all the sugar.

She scratched Leo behind the ears and said, “You’re all sticky. What did you get up to today? Are you not feeling well, Leo? I think you should go to sleep early and get some rest.”

“Meow, meow, meow,” Leo the Cat quickly agreed before jumping into his basket so she couldn’t ask him any more questions. 

“That was close! I’ll never do anything like that again!” he thought as he fell asleep.
