Hey Wrestling Addicted Mommy readers! Morris the Cat, from 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.)
For those of you who don’t know me, I’ve starred in over fifty 9Lives cat food commercials, am an advo-cat for kitty rescue, and was even crowned one of Advertising’s Greatest Icons by the Museum of Broadcast Communications. (But I must say, I took issue with this honor. I didn’t 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. As you know, the holidays are ‘prime eating time’ and I want you to be able to chow down like a pro.
I also thought, with everyone in the holiday spirit, it’s a great time to give back. 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?

I love the holiday season — the cold weather, the yummy food, and of course, all of the festivities! You know who else loves them too? My dog, Mello. I’m thinking it may be because of all the extra lovin’ and gifts he gets from the family.
It turns out that I’m not the only pet mama to spoil her pup during this time of year. That’s why I love this super cute website called TheNosePrint.com from Big Heart Pet Brands (the makers of Milk-Bone, Pup-Peroni, Canine Carry Outs, and Milo’s Kitchen). They really know how to celebrate the holidays with your pup!
On TheNosePrint.com, check out some of the fun doggy do-it-yourself ideas they’ve dreamed up. My favorite was the Pawticularly Personal Ornament. Mello can have the treats, and we get to keep the ornament. You let your kids make handprint ornaments, why not your furbaby too?
Other great homemade doggy gifts include a treat bouquet, a sweet treat jar, and a ho-ho-howliday treat bag. Yes, Mello is going to have a very holiday break.
The NosePrint.com also asked 3,000 Americans about their dog-related holiday habits, including whether their dog is involved in gift-giving, stocking-stuffing, Christmas sweater-wearing, and other holiday traditions.
What they found is that Americans really LOVE their pets. For instance, did you know 71% of dog parents give gifts to their pups? Have you completed your Christmas doggy shopping yet?
According to the survey, here are the top 5 reasons people give gifts to their dog:
1. To express love to my dog: 72%
2. Because it’s fun for me: 60%
3. To help my dog feel included like a family member: 54%
4. To give my dog a moment of happiness: 53%
5. To feel closer and bond with my dog: 43%
For me, I like to give presents to Mello because of all of these reasons. He’s such an important part of the family — I can’t imagine the holidays without him.
The study also shared how often dogs are included into popular Christmas traditions:
1. 48% of dog parents hang a Christmas stocking for their dog.
2. 43% of dog parents include a dog in a photo for a family holiday card.
3. 32% post photos of their dog on social media with a holiday message.
4. 29% dress up their dog in a holiday-themed costume or outfit.
5. 22% make or buy dog-themed holiday decorations.
For photos and instructions on how to add more dog-related fun to your home holiday traditions, check out these cool projects they have here.
Finally, want to know which states have the most spoiled pups?
The 2015 TheNosePrint.com Santa Dog Index ranks states based on how much, on average, dog parents will spend on their furry kids:
Top 10 States That Spend the Most on Holiday Gifts for Dogs:
1. New Jersey: $29.61 (average gift spending per dog for state residents)
2. New York: $28.95
3. Pennsylvania: $28.75
4. Utah: $27.75
5. Georgia: $27.04
6. California: $26.07
7. Washington: $25.81
8. Florida: $25.13
9. Illinois: $24.98
10. Virginia: $24.58
Apparently, it’s good to be a dog in the New York tri-state area. You can find the complete rankings of all 50 states at www.TheNosePrint.com.
One final thing: The folks at TheNosePrint.com have generously offered to give away a FREE Christmas doggy care package filled with some of the most delicious stocking stuffer treats for your pup.
To be entered to win the care package, use the giveaway widget below, and be sure to do the mandatory entry of visiting this DIY decor article on TheNosePrint.com and tell me in the comments below which DIY doggy decor project that you think your family would love best.
