Hey ya’ll! Listen up! I bet ya didn’t know I was friends with the famous “Morris the Cat” now did ya?! Well, I am! Bein’ a dog and all, I’m not to up-to-date on all this kitty stuff. But, Morris has let me know he is answerin’ some burnin’ cat questions you humanz have and giving gromming advice for cats. With spring comin’ up, and after that, the dreaded bathin’ suit season (eek!), I know everyone’s searchin’ for ways to look their best. My readers have a ‘paw up’ on the competition because we’re about to get some style and wellness tips from someone who knows a thing or two about looking awesome… I’m talking, of course, about Morris the Cat!
But just in case you’re not familiar with this illustrious feline, Morris is the original celebricat, starring in over 50 9Lives cat food commercials from the 1970s up through today. He’s even been called “the Clark Gable of cats,” and that’s about as debonair as it gets folks! In his “Dear Morris” column, he’ll be answerin’ some readers’ burnin’ questions about good groomin’, and he’s also givin’ away a human-sized, 9Lives-branded bathrobe, a $300 Spa Finder gift card, and a whole year’s supply of 9Lives cat food! Enter at his website.
Check out this question from ‘Hairy Harry’ for Morris the Cat!
I love my cat, Baxter, but man, does he shed! Every time I leave the house I’m covered in cat hair. It’s getting to the point where we can’t even cuddle together without me looking like the sticky side of a lint roller! Unleash your wisdom, Morris… there must be something I can do.
Dear Hairy Harry,
If your cat is shedding on you, the thing you should tell him is… “thank you!” Being covered in cat fur means you get to look like a cat, which means you get to look more awesome. However, if this isn’t your desired effect (although I can’t imagine why it wouldn’t be), try wearing clothes the same color as your cat to camouflage the fur. Kind of like a cat camouflages himself in clean laundry–hey, come to think of it, that could be why you’re always covered in fur! You can also try brushing Baxter a couple times a week to remove excess fur and redistribute the natural oils on his skin–now, that’s what I call a win-win!
You heard it right from the kitty’s mouth, folks! Tune back in for Morris’ next edition of good grooming advice and don’t fur-get to enter the giveaway at his Live Well & Prospurr website. You can also tweet #MorrisFeeds and Morris will donate a bowl of 9Lives cat food to a hungry rescue kitty.
