Winston eats mashed potatoes

People, Winston the cat is workin' this one. Just look at his smoooshed up face and ability to soft-kronsche his mashed potatoes. Let's hear it for him [Thunderous applause]

Now playing on CuteCast, People! Thanks to sender-inner Corin W. :D

Very zestful enjoyment. Those scrunched-up faces can convey a surprising amount of enthusiasm!

(Cringing in anticipation of virulent posts criticizing indulging a cat with potatoes.)

The other night, my cat passed up fresh salmon in favor of mashed potatoes. I really don't get her.

Is Winston a shaved/clipped Persian? He's got the smooshy face, but not the silky locks.

And I just love the cooking-show commentary in the background. Methinks Winston's something of a gourmand--he probably likes his cilantro (and lots of it) too.

There is no doubt... cats are funnier than dogs!

I love that the other cat is like, "Non, merci," and Winston is all, "Maybe I will and MAYBE I WILL!"

You should send a link over to Rich Juzwiak's often hilarious blog. Winston's his kitty. http://fourfour.typepad.com/

Reminiscent of a game I play with my cat called "Do Inkys Eat ____?"

And why do I fear this cat's smooshy snout is going to send us running for our anti-Nuff hard hats ere long?

Winston might be an exotic. Exotic what? you ask. That's the name of the breed and it is 'the lazy man/woman's persian. They are identical to the Persian cat except that they have short hair. (And Exotics are a recognized breed and it is separate from Persian.)

heh, last night my feline snatched a mushroom slice from my pizza .. . . i wonder if she likes mashed taters.
My mom puts chicken broth in hers. . .

 |  Dec 15, 2006 at 12:28 PM

Hahah! that was so cute, and it looked like he was crying at the end, he loved his taters so moische!

look again, I think those are tears of joy.

 |  Dec 15, 2006 at 12:32 PM

Ha ha! Winston's lip smacking noises are hilarious. He sure lurves his taters.

 |  Dec 15, 2006 at 12:35 PM

OMG...can you hear me laughing?

 |  Dec 15, 2006 at 12:38 PM

Spudderly delightful!

(and with a wonderful, smooshie face like that, is it any wonder that Winston would feel drawn towards mashed potatoes?)

 |  Dec 15, 2006 at 12:44 PM

That's winston from fourfour.typepad.com!! He's wonderful. :)

 |  Dec 15, 2006 at 12:46 PM

Winston - I wuv you man I wuv you I wuv you so much you hate mashed puddytoes compared to how much I wuv you!

Kohlrabi. Not the flesh, just the peelings. Kronsche, kronsche. And only Handsome Stranger, not Peabo or the Wicked Stepsisters.

In my family, we call these 'hit the wall' cats. But we do it lovingly.

Mine licks the coating off hard candy. She loves lime runts.

This is... um, cruel... and stuff... potatoes. Yeah. I mean look what they did to the cat's face.

 |  Dec 15, 2006 at 12:58 PM

sorry, but i think that's the ugliest cat i've ever seen.

 |  Dec 15, 2006 at 01:00 PM

What I love is that he grabs at the hand every time it *might* be pulling the lovely stuff away!! Miki does that with the ice cream bars.

Cilantro? That stuff makes everything taste like dish soap.

That's "Daisy Cooks," starring Daisy Martinez, in the background: my favorite cooking show! And she never, ever prepares duck.

Foom -- I think that's the potatoes you're looking at.

 |  Dec 15, 2006 at 01:08 PM

Now theeeeere's an interesting cat food fetish...

I'm afraid I have to agree with foom.

OMG! It's the cat from one of my other favorite blogs-- FourFour!

I love the way he takes a bite then his eyes widen as he realises how nice it is and he panics a little thinking the rest is going to be taken away. Awww.

(I may be reading too much into this)

 |  Dec 15, 2006 at 01:16 PM

I dunno... those kronshes don't look all that soft. Still, I like the nose-lick action.

 |  Dec 15, 2006 at 01:21 PM

wow.... Winston sure loves his taters! I like the elbowing the other dude out of the way action.

 |  Dec 15, 2006 at 01:24 PM

That did not look like a soft kronsche to me. I could feel the phantom pointy teeth crunching down on my own finger


 |  Dec 15, 2006 at 01:26 PM

Eeeee! Not just for Winston-kitteh, but for Teh Qte making CNN today!

Site redesign just in time to have the new logo on the teevee! w00t!

 |  Dec 15, 2006 at 01:27 PM

Lurker- I can't find the video, do you have the link/title?

 |  Dec 15, 2006 at 01:32 PM

lurkertype! Thank you. I saw that on CNN earlier but it didn't load fast enough so pfffft. Since you mentioned it I just tried again and it's awesome. CO is majorly featured.

My cat used to lurve mashed potato mixed with gravy. He also enjoyed fromage frais and fruitcake.

 |  Dec 15, 2006 at 01:36 PM

I used to have a cat who would pass up fresh cooked chicken to eat bread.

But try to crawl down my friend's throat when the friend had just eaten salmon.

Found it! Titled: "Is the Brangelina baby cuter than a panda cub?"

Congrats again Meg!

 |  Dec 15, 2006 at 01:38 PM

I'm having a crappy day and needed a Cuteness Fix (tm). This did the trick. Thanks!!

 |  Dec 15, 2006 at 01:48 PM

I'm a little late here - but ditto to that, shanchan.

Cilantro = yucky!

However, I can say

Spuds = deeee-lish!

 |  Dec 15, 2006 at 01:58 PM

my cat is really good at soft kronsche. However, she does NOT eat potatoes. LOL

 |  Dec 15, 2006 at 01:59 PM

Love the schlurping noises!

 |  Dec 15, 2006 at 02:01 PM

Ha! That CNN piece turned me on to Ugly Overload. That alpaca vid is hi-larious.

 |  Dec 15, 2006 at 02:22 PM

Oh, it's, gag, I just, gah!
This thread is giving me fits.

In random order:

Winnnnnnnnstonnnnnnn ! Twu wuv!

My orange tiger loved potatoes too.

CNN London and CNN in one week! (I first heard of CO (and SOMC) on NPR's homepage months ago.) If CO is this popular, wouldn't it be great if one day we didn't even need CNN, etc. anymore. The only news was Cute? If we only had Cute news?

And cilantro!? If you don't like cilantro then you can't like pico de gallo and you can't eat grilled salmon topped with pico de gallo for breakfast! What?!

 |  Dec 15, 2006 at 02:22 PM

Finding cilantro tastes like soap is genetic, kind of like being able to curl your tongue--and who knew, cilantro haters have their own little corner of the web: http://www.ihatecilantro.com/taste.php

I, however, am all for cilantro. And Winston. And C. O. on CNN--yay Meg!

 |  Dec 15, 2006 at 02:44 PM

i love Winston! He has the same name as my Mini Schnauzer...

As for Cilantro.. my husband and kid think it tastes like Metal.. I don't get it.. I love the stuff. I think it's a genetic thing too. Metal?!

 |  Dec 15, 2006 at 02:51 PM

Winston!! What a perfect name for this guy.

 |  Dec 15, 2006 at 02:57 PM

Okay, this is just the most amazing thing. I love that cat and the cat loves mashers. Perfect.

 |  Dec 15, 2006 at 02:58 PM

Golden - I'm starting a Cilantro Alloyance.

 |  Dec 15, 2006 at 03:08 PM

Man. I love cilantro, and so does Mr. Grumphus Bumfus Bunn B. Doofus.
Remember him?

Miss Millie B. Doofus, however, is kinda "meh" on cilantro, and their (human) dad doesn't like it at all.

Peg must be right--it must be genetic.

 |  Dec 15, 2006 at 03:11 PM


I'm sure we will win alumimmunity

 |  Dec 15, 2006 at 03:15 PM

dang.. my first stab at "pun" and I screw it up..
