Dear Morris,

Lately I’ve been looking slightly less than my best, which is unfortunate because I just started a new job and I wanted to make a good first impression. But instead, my eyes are all puffy and I just haven’t been my chipper self. I’m not sure how to get out of this style rut. Morris, can you help me get my grooming groove back?

Dear Fashion Faux-Paw,

Let me shed some light (and some fur) on this situation. The main thing I took away from your question is that you’re STRESSED! Starting a new job can be stressful and can lead to falling out of typical routines and lack of sleep. I should know because every time I start shooting a new commercial, I only sleep 15 hours a day instead of 16. But don’t despair! There’s one failsafe way to calm those nerves and give you back your glow. I’m talking about a massage, specifically a kitty massage. We kitties LOVE to give massages–well, we think of it more as kneading but you humans don’t seem to know the difference. A kitty massage will help you relax, and in turn, feel and look better. Plus, it’s purr-ty much impossible to feel stressed when you have the love of a cat.

Love all the adorable pictures and sayings with the cats. When our one cat kneads on my legs I often think hes just trying to make his bed ( my leg) situated enough so he can lay down and rest on it.

I loved reading this post! The very last photo ("I hold tension in my lower tail") got a real giggle-fit out of me. My younger cat, Sam, CRAVES attention and affection from me. When I give him little massages and get at his kitty shoulder blades, I'll say "And ~this~ is where you carry all your tension!" ...Oh, my. Cat people! :p (And, dog people! Animal people!)

Love Morris! The letter and reply is hilarious and the cat massaging the other one is so cute!
