9Lives is the name of a brand of cat food, owned by Del Monte Foods. It is best known for its mascot, Morris the Cat.
Morris the Cat is the advertising mascot for 9Lives brand cat food, appearing on its packaging and in many of its television commercials. A large red 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.
Although generally recognised for his work on He-Man, John Erwin has many years of voice acting to his credit, and has provided voice work for many productions ranging from television adverts to live action movies ever since the 1960s.
