Meowllo everypawdy, me sure hopes these storms pass over soon. And me hopes da weather in your area is more spring like. Speakin’ of da weather, ya’ know all this rain means me hasn’t been fur a stroll in days. Course dat also means me hasn’t had to smooth down me’s wind blown furs or bathe away da pollen so mommy and me don’t sneeze our heads off. You know us kitties spend a lot of time groomin’. Of course nappin’s furst on our agenda, but groomin’ comes in a close second. MOL 50% of our wakin’ hours are spent groomin’. And speakin’ of groomin’ ya’ know who asked me to help spread da word ‘bout good groomin’ habits? Morris, dat’s who. Yep da ginger tabby’s at it again with da 9 Lives Live well and Prospurr campaign; and this time he’s answerin’ questions ‘bout groomin’. Let’s see what advice he has to give.
I love my cat, Baxter, but man, does he shed! Every time I leave the house I’m covered in cat hair. It’s getting to the point where we can’t even cuddle together without me looking like the sticky side of a lint roller! Unleash your wisdom, Morris… there must be something I can do.
Dear Hairy Harry,
If your cat is shedding on you, the thing you should tell him is… “thank you!” Being covered in cat fur means you get to look like a cat, which means you get to look more awesome. However, if this isn’t your desired effect (although I can’t imagine why it wouldn’t be), try wearing clothes the same color as your cat to camouflage the fur. Kind of like a cat camouflages himself in clean laundry–hey, come to think of it, that could be why you’re always covered in fur! You can also try brushing Baxter a couple times a week to remove excess fur and redistribute the natural oils on his skin–now, that’s what I call a win-win!
Lately I’ve been looking slightly less than my best, which is unfortunate because I just started a new job and I wanted to make a good first impression. But instead, my eyes are all puffy and I just haven’t been my chipper self. I’m not sure how to get out of this style rut. Morris, can you help me get my grooming groove back?
Dear Fashion Faux-Paw,
Let me shed some light (and some fur) on this situation. The main thing I took away from your question is that you’re STRESSED! Starting a new job can be stressful and can lead to falling out of typical routines and lack of sleep. I should know because every time I start shooting a new commercial, I only sleep 15 hours a day instead of 16. But don’t despair! There’s one failsafe way to calm those nerves and give you back your glow. I’m talking about a massage, specifically a kitty massage. We kitties LOVE to give massages–well, we think of it more as kneading but you humans don’t seem to know the difference. A kitty massage will help you relax, and in turn, feel and look better. Plus, it’s purr-ty much impossible to feel stressed when you have the love of a cat.
Thanks Morris those are some really helpful tips. Mommy says a good massage is great fur easin’ da stress of life. And ya’ know what else helps us kitties relieve stress? A good meal or a nice groomin’ session with our human or some treats. And da peeps over at 9 lives have agreed to let me give one of me’s U.S. readers da chance to win a pawsum Grooming Kit fur kitty. You have till Monday April 18th to enter.

This is a sponsored post. We received product to share about the 9 Lives Live Well and Prospurr campaign. We only share things that we think would be of interest to you our readers and friends.
Well it’s Monday and meez been teasin’ you all ‘bout meez give away fur a while now. Meez tellin’ ya’, everypawdy needs one of these. Ifin there’s a head of hair or a body of fur in yous house, then pull up a chair and let me tell ya’ all ‘bout it.
Every furry out there needs sum groomin’. And there’s all kinds of tools out there fur helpin’ to get rid of mats and tangles and loose furs. And ifin yous like meez human yous purrobably tried more than a few of them. And purrobably ended up spendin’ a small fortune only to have your long haired furry run and hide or fight with you the whole time. Me purrsonally hates bein’ groomed. And mommy sez fank catness fur meez special Ragdoll fur udderwise me wuld be a matted mess. Dat is till recently. We received this pawsum groomin’ tool called da Groom Genie. Mommy gave it a once over and checked out da website and didn’t give it much fawt.
A few days later when me was layin’ in hers lap, mommy membered receivin’ it and reached over to pick it up. Me saw it, but it didn’t look like a typical brush or comb so me laid meez head back down and this time, me didn’t give it much fawt. Mommy then gently put it on meez back and stawrted brushin’ me wiff it. Oh me cats and kittens it felt sooooooo good. Me stawrted purrin’ and then da slobber came. Me was in groomin’ heaven. Me fawt to meez selff, “so this is why sis Lexi gets all beside hers selff when mommy brushes her fur.” Me just kuldn’t get enuff. There was no pullin’ or scwatchin’ just a nice massage. It’s made of plastic and has soft flexible bristles in diffewent sizes. It’s ergonamically crafted fur ease of use by yous human. Although mommy sez she wishes there was a strap to give her awfur-ritic hands a better grip, it’s still easy to handle. Me gives da Groom Genie 4 paws and a floofy tail up.
Sis Lexi likes every brush and comb mommy’s ever brought home, so she didn’t weally need to twy out da Groom Genie, but wantin’ to be fair and all, mommy used it on her too. She purred and cooed and drooled too. She sez she gives it all paws up and then sum. So now you’re askin’ yous selff what duz mommy weally fink, wight? Well let me let her tell ya’.
Thank you Dezi. Every long haired cat I have had the pleasure of knowing has hated being brushed, and Dezi was no exception. Yes she does have non matting fur but she still sheds and thus causes hairballs. And my poor baby looks horrified when she’s trying to get up a hairball. She has these projectiles that can go clear across the room. So matting or no, she needs to be brushed. It’s often done while she’s growling her displeasure and trying to bite the brush/comb. I didn’t expect anything different with the Groom Genie. But to my surprise, she loved it. No growls, no biting, no hisses, no protests of any kind. Instead she was offering spots to be combed and purring so loud I couldn’t hear the t.v. It removes dead fur easily and cleans effortlessly. I loved it too.
But it doesn’t stop there. They make one of these groomers for humans too. It’s called the Knot Genie. I have naturally curly hair that knots up like crazy. I pull out handfuls every time I pull a comb or brush through it. I mentioned that I needed to get one of the Knot Genies for myself and a few days later it was here. It not only works, but it doesn’t pull on my scalp and cause pain. Where was this when I was a kid? We all love the Groom Genie and Knot Genie here and think everyone needs at least one of these.
