Let’s talk about comfort food. Close your eyes and picture your favorite food to indulge on. It could be a piece of chocolate cake, some chicken fried rice, a roll of sushi, a bean burrito, some pad Thai, a greasy pizza or even something as simple as mashed potatoes. Is your mouth watering yet? Regardless of what your comfort food looks and tastes like, I bet we can all agree it contains way too much sugar, flour and/or sodium, but I would argue these ingredients are what makes it so tasty in the first place!
Personally, when looking to fill my belly with comfort, I often choose plain old noodles with butter. You may think this is lame, but considering how I am a broke college student, I really do appreciate the low cost of both noodles and butter, and honestly, it tastes amazing!
If you are someone who primarily fills their body with healthy nutrients, first I would like to say “kudos to you” because my self-control could really use some work in the food department, and second, I would like to present an alternative option for comfort: Noodle the cat, not the food.
Noodle is a male domestic shorthair cat. He is six years old and currently resides at the Dane County Humane Society. He weighs about nine pounds which means he is the perfect size to hold in your arms and snuggle with all day long without your arms crippling with exhaustion! He is a very handsome cat with orange fur on his back and white fur covering his belly. He loves affection from humans, and in return, I promise he will give you maximum comfort!
Noodle currently has an Upper Respiratory Infection (URI). Fortunately, he is on some medication which should help clear it up soon. Other than his URI, Noodle appears to be very healthy; however, once he finds a new home, a check-up visit with a veterinarian would be a good idea.
Noodle will not be available to adopt until Feb. 24 due to him being on a stray period. But if nobody claims him by Wednesday, he would love it if you adopted him and presented him with a new home! His adoption fee is an affordable 60 dollars plus tax. If you would like to move forward with this process, please visit the following link: Dane County Humane Society - Noodle.
Ultimately, no food, not even noodles with butter, will provide you with more comfort than Noodle is willing to offer you. Instead of indulging in your favorite comfort food, consider adopting an adorable cat like Noodle. Or even better, eat a bowl of buttery noodles while relaxing in your bed with a furry cat curled-up on your lap and I promise you, both the carbs and the cat’s soothing purr, will lull you to sleep.
