Wordless Wednesday – Sleep Like A Cat! Tips From Morris Plus A Giveaway

Magellan And His Bed

By day, I love to play with my new scratcher – but by night, I still prefer curling up in bed with Mom and Dad!

Welcome To Wordless Wednesday At Create With Joy!

Quote Of The Week

Cats are rather delicate creatures and
They are subject to a good many ailments,
But I never heard of one who suffered from insomnia.

Joseph Wood Krutch

Sleep Like A Cat!

How well do you sleep each night? If you’re like me, you never sleep nearly enough – or nearly as well as your cats!

Did you know that the average cat sleeps anywhere from 16 to 20 hours a day?

Since one of my goals this year is to take better care of myself – and I’d like to help you do the same – we have a special guest this week to help us learn more about the fine art of sleeping!

Please welcome Morris The Cat – the Expert Of Snooze – to Create With Joy!

Tips On Sleeping From Morris The CAt

Morris Outstretched On Bed

Morris is the original Celebrity Cat who has starred in over 50 commercials! As the star of the Live Well & Prospurr campaign, he offers the following tips for getting a good night of sleep:

TIP 1: Sleep in the coziest bed you can find! Make sure your bed has clean cozy sheets and plenty of room to stretch out!

Are you having difficulty getting sleep because your cats are hogging up all of the space? Morris has a solution – enter our US Giveaway for a chance to win a special cat scratcher that is contoured so your cat can lounge on it!

Morris The Cat With Electornics

TIP 2: Turn off your TV, PC, tablets and smartphones – electronics don’t belong in the bedroom! Did you know that the glow emitted from electronic screens enters the brain and slows the release of melatonin, the hormone that helps us sleep?

Chasing chirping birds before bedtime is a much better way to prepare for bedtime! Enter our US Giveaway for a chance to win Morris’s favorite toy!

Morris The Cat Reading

TIP 3: Morris also puts the kibosh on reading and noshing in bed! These activities are much more fun during the day, where we kitties can find creative ways to distract you! To encourage daytime dining, Morris entices you to enter our US Giveaway for a chance to win his favorite food!

Thanks, Morris, for the great advice you’ve shared! For more tips from the Expert Of Snooze, be sure to visit ProsPurr!

Disclosure: This week’s Wordless Wednesday is sponsored by 9 Lives, who provided product samples and the prizes for our giveaway.

Surely, I’m not the only sleep-deprived human
In a house full of bed hogs!

(I confess – I need to work on Tip 2!
I can’t seem to sleep without my phone!)

    It’s interesting how he knows that is a bed for him. Cat’s are cool creatures. But of course, Mom’s bed is better. 😉 Thanks for hosting!

      Aww, Lana – I’m so sorry you had to move and leave your cat behind!
      I hope you found a good home for your baby and am able to find a new cat of your own to love very soon!

    Luxie, Coco and Patchouli are very excited about this giveaway!

  8. Keith's Ramblings says:

    It’s a cat’s life! Nice,

  9. Koko will keep us up at night if we let him sleep in our bed (he likes to pounce on feet), but he is very happy in his many special spot throughout the house 🙂 Thanks for the party!

    Those are great tips! I don’t really have a sleeping problem and I certainly hope it stays that way! Occasionally I sneak my phone into the bedroom, but when I turn in for good, I switch it to sleep and place it upside down, so that I won’t get distracted should it light up

  11. Mary Denman says:

    Looks so comfy!

    Liam has decided he likes our cat tower. I’ll get a few shots of him in it for next week!

    Have a great week Ramona!

    My cat cuddles when its cold outside!

    Great sleeping tips from Morris. Cats are consummate professionals when it comes to snoozing, for sure. 🙂

    Love the picture of Magellan on his contoured scratcher. So handsome (and cute)!

    Happy Wednesday, and thanks for hosting!

  14. Angela Saver says:

    Our sweet cat will keep us up at night kneading us & cuddling, but we love her! Thanks for an AWESOME giveaway!

  15. Claire says:

    Aww Sweeties 🙂

    Thanks for hosting Joy 🙂

  16. Piranha Banana says:

    Very cute – they need to come up with a ‘dog scratcher’ as I certainly would use it often. In the meantime my momma buys me one of those head scratchers from the pharmacy – those work quite well. Zzzzzzzzzz

  17. Looks like I was already following Morris’ tips. No TV or reading in the bedroom have always been my rules!

    My cat would love to win this giveaway, but unfortunately we live in Europe and so we can’t enter the giveaway.

      I’m so sorry you’re not eligible Rosa – I wish it were international but I know that the shipping is prohibitive due to the size and the weight of the cat food – perhaps next time! 🙂

  18. I should take Morris’s advice and sleep more. I tend not to sleep much at all. Rosie, our cat, on the other hand absolutely sleeps at least 15 hours a day.

    Great tips! My cat bro Bert is offering his tips on sleeping on my blog tomorrow. He’s pretty excited about it when he is awake.

  20. Gina says:

    Thanks for hosting Sharon and have a great day!

  21. Sue says:

    Hi entering giveaway, i got my cat a new bed for Christmas but she doesn’t like it, she found Dad’s winter coat that he left on floor and now uses that he-he.

  22. Thanks for the all the tips. I need to put the Kindle down before I enter the bedroom.

  23. Anne says:

    Cuddling alot and keeping me up intermittently. Adorable and sweet feature.

  24. Thanks for sharing these sleeping tos, Morris!

  25. My youngest cat plays and sometimes wakes me up at night to extract her from the bathroom, while my older cat snuggles down with one of my daughters and tries to take over their beds! Thanks for hosting!

  26. Kitties Blue says:

    Our mom also needs to work on #2, but it would also be nice if we could give her some room in the bed. We usually makes her sleep like a pretzel. MOL! XOCK, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo

  27. Kim Henrichs says:

    I have a mix of both. I have one who cuddles and i have a few who, depending on the night, will wake me at awesome hours like two a.m.!

  28. Robin says:

    Morris has some great tips! My cats are definitely better at sleeping than I am. I have a huge problem with insomnia .

  29. Oh my gosh!!! My cat brought a REAL chickadee into the house yesterday. She carried it in by it’s wing and then let it go and that thing flew all over our house. I’m surprised it didn’t break it’s neck trying to fly out the windows. My son was finally able to pick it up and let it outside and it thankfully flew away! Thanks for hosting WW again. Have a great end to your week.

  31. Great tips and photos!

    Athena always sleeps with me at night and we sometimes enjoy afternoon naps together 🙂

  32. Kayley says:

    My cat used to keep me up, but now she lets me sleep for most of the night. Then she acts as my alarm clock in the morning. 🙂

  33. Mindie says:

    My cat loves to meet me (she gets there before I do!) in bed for some night time cuddles. She then tried to perch on top of me and go to sleep. I always manage to make her slide off and she spends the rest of the night curled up right where she lands, usually by my tummy. She has been know to be a blanket hog too! LOL

  34. Monique G. says:

    We have 3 and each one finds a bed to cuddle in. Most nights they are curled up on beds before us.

  35. Amy Orvin says:

    My cats love to sleep with me at night. They do ,however, wake me early to eat breakfast. 🙂

  36. That is adorable! Thanks for hosting this contest and giving me a chance to win cool prizes for Glenda my favorite feline.

  37. Nancy Loring says:

    My cat snuggles with both the dog and I at night. It is the only time the cat will let the dog near him. nancyloring317@gmail.com in New Hampshire.

  38. suzanne says:

    Our cats often sleep at the foot of our bed then early morning they come cuddling.

  39. Kathe W. says:

    purrfect pose! Cheers!

  40. Elle says:

    Luckily my cat is on my schedule and doesn’t wake me up early. He usually starts off sleeping in his bed in my room but somehow ends up in bed with me by morning.

  41. Comedy Plus says:

    What a great giveaway and I love to see the places cats decide to sleep. They are expert sleepers.

    Have a fabulous day. ☺

  42. Cindy says:

    My cats do not help me sleep in Cali. One of my cats wakes me up by meowing very loudly.

  43. Emily Smith says:

    My cat always sleeps on my feet or legs at night.

  44. Michelle M says:

    The cat is always in someone’s bed 🙂

  45. Tiffany Seybold says:

    One of them snuggles with my feet and the other one wakes me up in the middle of the night wondering where everyone went.

  46. Tina W says:

    Only one of my five cats likes to snuggle at night. They all LOVE to lay on top of the paper when I try to read it though!
