Morris the Cat Takeover- America's Choosiest Cat Gives Back

This is a groundbreaking first for niecyisms and nestlings. It's a takeover! Yes, I have temporarily stepped down and prepare yourselves for the next in line to share with you from niecyisms' headquarters. I take my commitment to providing fun and fresh information extremely seriously. I'm always on task, until today- the takeover from a close, personal friend and advocate is all about the importance of giving. In this spirit, I introduce to you my Giving Tuesday Takeover celeb, welcome, none other than- Morris the Cat.

Thank you to Morris the Cat and 9Lives for sponsoring this advertorial with educational content and a promotional item.


Hey Faves! Morris the Cat, from that scrumptious 9Lives cat food, here. (You may have thought that a cat's only computer skills involve laying on the keyboard while others are trying to use it, but in fact, we are very tech savvy.) 


Now, for those of you who don't know me very well, I've starred in over 50 featured 9Lives Cat Food commercials, I'm very active as advo-cat for kitty rescue, and was even crowned one of Advertising's Greatest Icons by the Museum of Broadcast Communications. Who knew? How is a lucky cat like myself supposed to know I was advertising all those years... I just really love 9Lives!)


In case you couldn't guess, I'm purr-ty much an expert when it comes to eating, and that's the subject of my next venture. I know we just had Thanksgiving and you may have promised yourself you were never going to eat again. But trust me, your appetite will come around like a good old friend and when it does, I want you to be ready!

I also thought since we just had a day to give thanks, we should now take a moment to give back. After all, December 1st is Giving Tuesday, a day people all around the world have dedicated to affecting 'pawsitive' change. Lucky for you, giving back is as easy as using your opposable thumbs. With those two bad boys – and the rest of your fingers – you can help feed a kitty in need. Watch this video to find out how. (Spoiler Alert: It's totally FREE!)




I don't know about you but all this meowing about food has gotten me hungry.

I've made it my mission to help cats and humans eat well – and by extension – live well. (I've often said the key to life can be found in your food dish.) With that in mind, I invite you to check out my Official Guide to Eating, Munching, Snacking & More. If you've ever caught yourself inhaling your food between errands or carting your human kittens around... or if you mindlessly shovel in your dinner while catching up on the latest episode of "Meownton Abbey" or "Silicon Alleycat"... then this guide is for you!

In it, you'll learn how to eat like the true foodie you were meant to be. On my site Prospurr.9Lives.com, you can also enter to win a customized drivable cooler, so if you do have to eat on the go, you can do so in style. And don't forget to tweet #MorrisFeeds to give hungry kitties the gift of a tasty, hearty 9Lives meal.

On that note, my stomach is starting to rumble. What's on the menu tonight, you ask? 9Lives Lean & Tasty and a side of Meaty Paté with Real Chicken. For a beverage I'll be enjoying some delicious tap water. How about you?
