Ask Morris: What Are Your Resolutions?
It's not easy to improve upon perfection, but like everyone else, this time of year I start thinking about what I can be doing even better. I'm willing to invest a little time into a more excellent me this year, because (let's be honest) the world deserves it. Here are my resolutions for an even better Morris in 2017:
1. Get In (Even Better) Shape
My human already feeds me 9Lives®, so I know I'm on the right track here, but even my supermodel figure needs constant upkeep. My human got me 9Lives® Lean & Tasty. I had my first serving of it today, and I can happily tell you it lives up to the "tasty" part of its name.
Of course, eating lean is only half the battle. After napping through most of the holiday chaos, I'm feeling the urge to get up and move a bit. I got some catnip in my holiday stocking, which is giving me some extra pep that I burn off by running up and down the stairs as fast as I can. After cardio, a nap, of course.
Cats are naturally good at meditation. You've seen us eye birds — we're so still, they don't even know we're there. I'll spend 2017 honing my already exceptional ability to look inward, and this year I won't fall zzzzzzzzzzzzz... Oh. Apologies, I got a little too Zen there for a moment. Besides staying awake, the second biggest meditation challenge, of course, will be to keep myself from contemplating the deep mysteries of what's for dinner.
3. Spend More Time with Family and Friends
Really, it's the least I could do.
4. Be More Me
Like I said, I'm already pretty much perfect, but you know me — I can't get enough of...me. And neither can my humans. So I'm just going to focus on sharpening my wealth of skills and letting the world enjoy more of my special gifts. You're all very welcome.
But don't worry. Even with all of these new ambitions, there will still be enough room in my schedule for napping and eating. Some changes might be good, but priorities are priorities.
