Really? Here you go:

http://www.answers.com/topic/morris-the-cat

Morris the Cat (voiced by John Irwin), is the advertising mascot for 9Lives brand cat food, appearing on its packaging and in many of its television commercials. A large orange tabby tom, he is "the world's most finicky cat," and prefers only 9Lives brand, making this preference clear by means of humorously sardonic voice-over comments when offered other brands. Every can of 9Lives features Morris' "signature".

Morris has appeared in other media over the years. He starred in the movie Shamus with Burt Reynolds and Dyan Cannon in 1973. He also appears as a "spokescat" promoting responsible pet ownership, pet health and pet adoptions through animal shelters. To this end, he has "authored" three books: The Morris Approach, The Morris Method, and The Morris Prescription.

Over the years several cats have portrayed Morris on television. The original Morris was discovered in a Chicago animal shelter in 1968 by professional animal handler Bob Martwick. The current Morris lives in Los Angeles with his handler, Rose Ordile.
