Waffle is the deuteragonist of Catscratch. He is a Scottish fold gray and white cat with long, dog-like ears and a long tail. He is the youngest of the cats.
He can speak Newtuguese (a language supposedly spoken by newts) as if he were a newt himself. Waffle is a free spirit who is overly optimistic. He often shouts "Splee!" or "Woo Hoo!" when happy and gets super-excited about all things silly. Waffle has been wowed by revolving doors, fingers, bubble wrap, and newts. He also wishes roller coasters were public transportation, would eat donuts straight from "donut trees", loves zero gravity basketball and smelling the pictures of flowers on shirts. He accepted a space slug to be his new ruler, which leaded to Blik flushing the slug down the toilet.
Extremely giddy, dumb, cute, funny, and enthusiastic, Waffle can be a bit of an idiot savant. He lives totally in the moment, and he loves his pet newts. He's an optimist, and he's also easily entertained by even the most insignificant events.
He often acts like a dog, most notably in "Off the Leash."
Waffle also enjoys making armpit noises.
Waffle is mostly a gray color. His feet are white, and he has blue stripes around his long tail and on his left ear. He has a pair of white eyes with black pupils.
