Tips for Getting the Best Sleep by Morris the Cat - Part 3 and Giveaway

We're happy to share the final edition of Morris the Cat's advice column where he'll reveal the much need-to-know information on how to release your inner cat and get the best night's sleep of  your life.
Brulee knew as a kitten how to get a good night's sleep (November 2011)

Morris is an iconic spokescat and star of over 50 9Lives cat food commercials from the 1970s onward.  He has a prolific career envied by many of the Internet cat sensations of today and is still going strong! The secret to his longevity? Well, for one, the fact that he eats 9Lives. But more importantly, he has a disciplined sleep regimen – racking up about 140 hours per week!

Morris wants to teach YOU the tricks of the trade and give you all the tools you need, so he's hosting a giveaway on his Live Well & Prospurr site to win a Morris-shaped plush bed that's big enough for you AND your cat to snuggle up on.


Dear Morris Advice Column


Dear Morris,

My cat and I are BFFs. We do everything together – play, eat, snuggle – we make a purrfect team. But in the bedroom, I prefer to have my space. My cat, on the other hand, thinks there's no better place to sleep than right on my head! Why does she do this? I'm not all that fun when I'm sleeping.

Warmly, 
Tired Tails


Truffle and Brulee sleep as close to Mom Paula as they can at night

Dear Tired Tails,

You have been bestowed a great honor. As cats, we don't always wear our hearts on our paws, but one tell-tail sign we love and trust you is when we choose to make YOU our bed. Plus, you're warm. And getting our warmth from you helps us to conserve our own energy for more important things like eating. The rhythm of your breath also creates a calming effect and the curve of your face, stomach, or legs perfectly forms to our bodies. Basically, you're like a waterbed, heated blanket, and memory foam all in one! So the next time your cat goes to curl up on you, think of it as a compliment and drift off to sleep knowing you are loved... and you're very comfortable.

Kitty Hugs,
Morris

  8. Cinco and Manna love to sleep with me. Cinco likes to sleep on my thighs and Manna likes to sleep next to my chest. It is wonderful on cold Michigan nights!

  9. One of my cats sleeps with me and the dog. This is the only time he will let the dog near him. My other two cats sleep with my daughter. This has been their routine for years.

  11. Boo sleeps right up next to me all night. It's funny because she will not snuggle with me until she gets ready for bed!

  12. My cats love to take over my bed. It's their favorite sleeping spot.

  13. That is such a cute photo of Brulee. Flynn likes to sleep on top of me. If I am on my side, he keeps walking over me until I turn onto my back and he can get comfy.

  17. For my cats it's any time, any place. The stranger the position, the better for my Moko. For Arata it's crashing after burning off energy running through the house and pestering the dogs.

  18. We sleep almost anywhere...anytime. :). But mostly on the bed.

    1. It was her first day with me and she'd fallen asleep beside me. I had to get up and she just fell over on her back. I'm so glad I had the camera right beside me.

  27. We like to curl up into circles as tight as we can. Mom Peggy met one of the Morris the Cats at a family pet expo many years ago.

  29. I love cats and kittens I have four lol, and it’s probably just because she is in a new environment the best way to introduce a kitten to a new place is to put it in a little room (with food, water and a litter box) and just let her get the hang of things and later let her investigate your house. And yes when cats get older they normally calm down. if she’s not neutered or spayed, witch ever one i forget witch ones for females, cats tend to be wild and once she’s old enough you should neuter her that calms them down.
