Quote Of The Week

No amount of time can erase
The memory of a good cat.
And no amount of masking tape can ever totally
Remove his fur from your couch.

How To Groom Like A Cat!

Now that Spring has arrived and bathing suit season is just around the corner, it’s time to put our best paws forward and get in shape so that we will look and feel our best this season!

To that end, I asked Tsunami and Magellan if they would mind turning today’s column over to a style and fashion icon who knows a thing or two about looking awesome and would be willing to share some tips with us.

Always the gracious hosts, they willingly agreed – so once again, let’s welcome Morris, the original Celebrity Cat, to Create With Joy!

Grooming Tips From Morris The Cat

You Can Look This Good

Morris is the cat we all grew up with! Originally starring in over 50 commercials, Morris now is the online star of the Live Well & Prospurr campaign, where he’s currently raising food for cats at the ASPCA – hosting a fabulous spa giveaway you won’t want to miss – and sharing tips like these to help you look and feel your best!

And now – let’s turn things over to Morris!

Thank you dear friends for inviting me back to Create With Joy! I hear that you’d like to look as good as me? I love your lofty aspirations! I frequently get fan mail asking for tips on how I always look so purr-fect and here are a few tips I’d like to share:

Tip 1: Don’t Be Afraid Of A Little Fur!

Lint Rollers

When your cats shed on you, don’t wail – thank them for helping you to look more like a cat! People pay good money for the privilege of dressing up like cats at Halloween. Your cat is adopting you into the cat kingdom for free!

However – if you insist on walking around in your human skin and fur-less clothing, try to wear clothes that are the same color as your cat to help camouflage the fur! Brush up on your cat grooming skills (if you brush your cats regularly, there will be less fur for them to shed!)! Brush up on your house-cleaning skills (no need to elaborate there!) – and always have a lint brush on hand to remove excess fur from your clothes!

Tip 2: Don’t Be Afraid To Primp And Preen!

All Cats Are Beautiful

I know you’ll find this hard to believe, but do you know that it takes a lot of work to look this beautiful – even for us cats? I spend up to 50% of my waking hours grooming – not only because it makes me look good, but because it makes me feel good too! Sometimes it’s relaxing and meditative! So, spend as much time as you need in front of the mirror! Your grooming habits are a purr-sonal choice!

Tip 3: Do Whatever It Takes To Manage Your Stress!

Fresh Laundry

Create a daily routine. Get enough sleep. Get and give a massage! When I lose sleep – for example, when I only get 15 hours of sleep a day instead of my normal 16 hours of sleep because I’m shooting a commercial – a kitty massage soothes my stress away! Trust me – nothing is more relaxing than loving or receiving love from the cats in your life!

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

  3. Raine says:

    My biggest challenge is grooming. Three of my boys have medium to long, dense fur. I usually (attempt) to keep them trimmed down. Two of them are Maine Coon mixes but after a salon session with me they don’t look so majestic. I also wear a lot of dark colors and usually don’t notice that I’m covered in fur until I’m out of the house. buzzyngabe at yahoo dot com. Thank you!

  4. Jen says:

    My biggest challenge is when my cat starts kicking litter out of the litterbox because he gets litter on himself.

  5. Jennifer Webb says:

    I like the tip to not be afraid of fur. It makes me more cat like!
