Meows of Wisdom from Morris the Cat + #Win a Well-Groomed Kitty Kit! – ends 4/10 US Only

Whew it’s been a long week here! But, my cat friends have been getting gussied up and ready for the weekend! Last week, we shared grooming advice for cats straight from Morris the Cat! And, now we’re back for the second installment of “Dear Morris,” featuring meows of wisdom from the world’s most famous feline, Morris the 9Lives spokescat. Morris wants to help you look (and feel) as good as he does! And to do that he’s offering advice, plus to chance to win a human-sized, 9Lives-branded bathrobe, a $300 Spa Finder gift card, and a whole year’s supply of 9Lives cat food! 

Meows of Widom from Morris the Cat!

9Lives groom yourself for greatness
Dear Morris,

My teenage daughter spends 45 minutes in front of the mirror every day primping and brushing her hair. I think this is excessive but she tells me it’s what makes her happy. Morris, since you always look fabulous, I thought you could give me some advice–what’s the best way to get her to spend less time in front of the mirror?

9lives - just 5 more minutes Mom
Dear Fur-ustrated Mamma,

I know it may seem like I just wake up looking this good, but believe it or not, I put in lots of long hours licking my fur. In fact, as a cat, I groom up to 50% of the time I’m awake. Grooming not only makes you look good, it can be used for meditation–kind of like focusing really hard on a red laser dot. So I say, take the time you need to feel your best–whether it’s 5 minutes or 45. It’s a very purrsonal choice.

9Lives - beauty is in the eye of the beholder

Morris has spoken, readers. Turns out there’s nothing wrong with a little extra gussying up. 

But that’s not all! We have a giveaway tonight too!

We brush them occasionally but they do most of the grooming.

I just have a very ineffective brush. I really need to get something better.
