Editor's Note:
As promised in Morris Guest Post #1, world famous Morris the Cat takes over this blog again today with another cat psychiatrist on-the-couch guest post to make you howl with laughter. For more fun animal related stuff cat lovers don't miss our 9Lives Cat Giftbasket Giveaway, the Top 8 Free Cat Apps and all the funny animal videos I've been posting on MBE's Facebook page lately. You'll also want to learn about how you can participate in the ASPCA cat food drive Morris and 9Lives are running via their Live Well & Prospurr program.

A bona fide celebricat since he made his debut in commercials in the 1970s, America's favorite 'charmingly choosy' feline has launched a "Dear Morris" column to help cats and their humans make the most of playtime. Here's the second in a series of three Guest Posts Morris has agreed to do for MBE's cat loving readership.

From Morris' Mailbox

Dear Morris,

I recently went to the pet store and came back with tons of new toys for my cat, Marvin. I was so excited to share some quality playtime with him that I could hardly wait for him to eat dinner! After he finished his 9Lives Plus Care (he’s a huge fan, by the way), I started waving his new toys around, but he just stared at me blankly—I got zip, zero, zilch! Morris, where did I go wrong? Does Marvin not like playing… or worse, does he not like me??
Thank you,
Confused in the Catskills

Dear Confused in the Catskills,

You’ve got nothing to worry about. I’m sure Marvin loves playing and I know he loves you. This was merely an instance of poor timing. You see, cats are often reluctant to play after mealtime. No one wants to jump around on a full stomach... even if you’re eating healthy with 9Lives Plus Care! The best time to play with Marvin is after he’s had a nice, long nap, and if he loves napping as much as I do, you’ll have many opportunities! And remember to make time for fun human games as well, like checkers, cards—or my personal favorite—cat's cradle. The two of you will have mastered Level 5 of my “Official Guide” in no time. 
Yours truly,
Morris the Cat

  1. My MIL feeds her cats 9 Lives. From what I can tell, she is pretty happy with it.

  2. I am loving this series. These questions and answers are so cute!

  3. My two cats love 9Lives. I haven't seen the Plus Care, though. I definitely would like to find a food that provides the most benefits without breaking the budget!! I'll have to check this out. Btw, I love Morris. He still cracks me up!

  4. I found a stray kitten a few years ago and when I went to buy food, I got 9 Lives because of Morris. This is brilliant having him answer the questions.

  5. Ha, ha, ha... I love Morris the cat and agree, no one wants to jump around and play after meal time. Great advice...

  6. This makes a lot of sense. Our cat goes straight to the couch for a tongue bath and then a nap after eating!

  7. I have two cats and they love 9Lives. I will have to pick up some new toys and some 9Lives Plus Care on the weekend.

  8. Morris is an amazing cat. I love this advice series. 9Lives is great cat food.

  9. I love seeing posts from Morris The Cat! They are so cute, and even helpful.

  10. I'm not a huge cat fan, but I've always liked Morris. Too funny seeing him answer questions like that.

  11. I love this campaign, and have already tweeted to support the cause. Crossing my fingers I win!

  12. Im a cat lover, i swear. Im going to buy 9lives cat food, pretty sure that my cat would love it.

  13. Yeah, don't feel like playing after a big meal either Morris. Great Point.

  14. I don't own a cat, but this is good to know. I really enjoy reading Morris' advice.

  15. Cats can be so much fun to play with, but they have to be in the mood for it!

  16. I did not even know old Morris was still around after all these years...never mind a new series...excellent
