Giveaway & Interview with Morris: 9Lives Advanced Nutrient System Prize Pack - CLOSED

This giveaway has ended!  Thanks for visiting!

9Lives Advanced Nutrient System was developed to specifically meet the nutritional needs of different cats.  At 9Lives, they understand that different cats have different needs, and therefore have an easy to use guide to help determine the correct Dry Food formula for your cat!  In an effort to educate pet parents about the common misperceptions of proper feline nutrition, 9Lives is committed to raising awareness to this issue by providing advanced nutrition for all cats. With the 9Lives Advanced Nutrient System, feline parents everywhere can rest assured knowing their cats are getting the essential nutrients they need to help promote healthy skin and coat, strong muscle growth and a healthy immune system among other benefits.

As a member of MyBlogSpark, I was given the opportunity to review 9Lives Advanced Nutrient System and had the opportunity to interview Morris, the spokescat for 9Lives.  Here's what I asked Morris, and his responses...can you tell he's a famous spokescat?

Morris, 9Lives Spokescat
Q: What is your favorite thing to do after you finish a yummy meal?

A: Sleep. Paws down.

Q: Do you prefer your own food/water dishes or will you share with a feline companion?
A: I’m not really the best at sharing….

Q: If you could have only one toy, what would it be?
A: Is there a stuffed Morris doll? Otherwise I’m a big fan of the red laser pointers.

Q: Do you prefer to play alone or with other cats/human interaction?
A: It’s more about my fans – human and animal – wanting to hang with me. But I do like a little “Morris time” now and then.

Q: When you are just passing the time, what is your favorite activity?
A: I enjoy the occasional gaze in the mirror, and the more than occasional nap.

Q: What is your favorite place for a nap and how much do you sleep each day?
A: I can nap anywhere, any time.

Q: Do you enjoy being a famous cat and where do you go to just get away from it all?
A: What’s not to love? My fans are amazing. And like any celebrity, I have my escapes, but if I tell you...they won’t be escapes.

We have three cats (yes, three) but they tend to be camera shy so I don't talk about them much on here except for when they pee and poop on Logan's bed...but I thought I would include some pics (notice the similarity of Tequi to Morris?)!  Our cats are on specially formulated prescription diet following a urinary blockage, so we didn't try the 9Lives Advanced Nutrient Food but they did love the toys and the bag clip/scoop works really well!  We'll be donating the food to a local animal shelter to kitties in need where I am sure it will be appreciated!

Our kitties:  Tequi, Madison, & Bailey

Hi and Happy Friday! :) Well, clicking on the tabs there, sure liked the sound of easy litter box cleanup, that sure got my attention! :)

I learned that the food contains extra fiber and garden greens to help control hair balls for indoor cats. Our oldest is 15 mos old and he just started getting hairballs! gross poor baby!
Aslan would love to try this food to see if it helps control his hairballs.

I learned that All 9Lives varieties, both canned and dry, meet AAFCO standards. I didn't know there was an AAFCO.
