    Dear Jackson…Love your program; taught me alot. I need help, please. My 18 yr old male died 3 weeks ago as a result of diabetes. My female, 19, is grieving it seems. She never seemed to care particularly about him but the day he didn’t return home, she became hostile, to put it mildly…bites, hisses, totally NOT the sweet, affectionate girl she was. Took her to the vet to get her health checked out…he was afraid of her…he said if she has a problem he considered her “untreatable”. I am gentle with her..breaks my heart she hates me now…together, we are all we have left in the house. I am 75 and
    feel badly for her as well as missing my feline friend.

      I’m so sorry for your loss, Carol, what a distressing situation. I’m also sorry that your vet essentially abandoned you by calling your cat “untreatable.” That’s unconscionable as far as I’m concerned. I’d look for another vet, preferably one who deals with cats exclusively. I’m also wondering whether there’s another reason for her sudden aggression, it almost sounds like redirected aggression to me. Here’s more information on that: Lastly, since Jackson no longer does private consultations, you may want to consider working with a feline behaviorist. I can highly recommend Mikel Delgado or Daniel Quagliozzi Both offer remote consultations. I hope this helps.

    I was wondering if it costs any money to be on the show or if it’s free. I want our cats to get along, but I can’t really afford to pay money for someone to come and help..

    I adopted a shelter cat about 2 years ago (looks like a British Shorthair, male fixed). He hid behind the TV for the first year. After one year, he got comfortable walking around my place. He interacts normally with the other two cats (they arrived later). The problem is he will hiss or run away if anyone tries to touch him including me (the owner). He will sniff the back of your hand and will let you pet him with a back scratcher but no human hands. He plays with toys now and then, like a regular cat. His paper work was stamped, feral. I’ve tried some of the ideas from the TV show – slow blinks and bed time stories but he does not change. Any suggestions, or is this the best you can expect from a “feral” cat.

    I have (2) 4 year old cats and just adopted the sweetest, most lovable rescue cat (she is 1.5 years old).

    Bitsy gets along fantastic with her (they play all the time and there is no tension). BUT Buttercup is very aggressive and becoming violent with Honeybun (our rescue kitty).
    She prowls and jumps her & ATTACKS HER. Poor little girl.

    We followed the basic steps of “weaning them” to one another in separate rooms, then behind glass doors, then the door open just a bit etc….tried relaxing plug-ins….changed to a supposedly more relaxing food.

    I don’t want Buttercup to be angry and sad and I don’t want the little one to feel bullied, scared and prowled upon.

    PLEASE HELP!!!! We watch your show all the time, my two little girls (ages 11 & 9) said CALL JACKSON MOMMY!
    I also do not want to get rid of Honeybun 🙁 But we are at that point.

    Kind regards,
    Terri Cousins & Family

    I love watching Jackson’s show and the results he gets are amazing! I don’t have a cat from hell but I think my cat has some issues to address that would make him happier. Toby is 8 now and we got him when he was 4. He seems to have separation anxiety, especially when we just step outside for a few minutes (but he might have anxiety all the time we are at work, I may need to get a camera to confirm) We come in and find him yowling and mounting a stuffed animal toy, holding a lanyard in his mouth. He is very focused and turns in circles while on the toy. The lanyard came with him and he is very protective of it and he NEEDS to know where it is at all times. Once I put it in my pocket for a week and he read me the riot act when he got it again. I just want him to be happy and would love to ask how I can help him cope with his issues.

    Regarding being available for three full weekdays is that just for the casting call or the show? And where? I’d love to see if he could help my little girl, Miley.

    Love the show. I watch for pointers that I can use with my Misty. I have had many cat’s over the yrs, and seen different personalities. The last kitten I got was Misty, (Queen of the Nile). And she is the queen. She kinda like a dog. I got her @ 8wks. She had a litter of 4 when she turned 1. All were rehomed except one, Pharaoh. So I kept him. He LOVES him mom. And she loved him and our 2 small dogs. But now she is hissing at them all, when they aren’t even near her or paying attention to her. She walks in and just hisses and charges them. Weird thing is I tried to separate her and her sons food, but they still eat with each other. When shestone she swats him. Why is she acting this way all of the sudden? Now AL the animals see her and they run away, except for Pharaoh, he still just try to love her and play, but she wants no parts. And now she has charged at me but stops when she gets close enough and I don’t move. I stand my ground. I have always had convos with her, and she knows what I’m saying. What can I do to help her stop her attitude? Other than that she’s just a normal sweet loving and affectionate cat when she chooses to be.

        Thank you Ingrid, I am definitely going to try these techniques and see what works. Hopefully she will get back to her self again.

    Hi Jackson, we just applied, Fred Morris was born in LA and then moved to New Jersey where he worked got to know chipmunks; there he met a bad and a good vet, but now he’s very scared of vets, and doesn’t like staying inside as an indoor cat. So he’s biting and attacking us. Please help!
