My Cat From Hell now casting Season 4

My_Cat_from_Hell_Jackson_Galaxy

You’ve watched Cat Daddy Jackson Galaxy come to the rescue of behaviorally challenged cats and their humans for three seasons. Armed with his signature guitar case filled with cat toys, Spirit Essences and other training aides, Jackson trains the humans as much as he trains the cats, since the majority of feline behavior problems are caused by humans who don’t understand cats’ natural behaviors.

This just in: Animal Planet has renewed My Cat from Hell for a fourth season, and they’re put out a casting call for the new season. If you have a cat whose behavioral challenges are driving you crazy, they want to hear your story! It hasn’t been determined which cities they’ll be filming in this season, so this casting call is open to all US locations.

Here’s what your submission should include:Continue Reading

If you’ve been going into My Cat From Hell withdrawal, your wait is almost over: Jackson Galaxy returns to Animal Planet with ten new episodes of the hit show on June 30.In this new season, for the first time, Jackson is taking his skills and signature guitar case filled with cat toys on the road to New York City.

As we’ve seen in the two previous seasons, it’s often the humans in the household that need Jackson’s help far more than the cats. “Each cat has a distinct personality and temperament and the actions of humans can easily lead to a claw in the face,” says Galaxy. “Dealing with these out-of-control cats can be easier than dealing with out-of-touch owners, and fixing people first can often be the cure all for feline vexations.”

I can’t wait for the new season to start. In the meantime, if you need a “Jackson fix”Continue Reading

Jackson Galaxy returns to Animal Planet with Season 2 of My Cat From Hell

animal-planet-my-cat-from-hell

Jackson Galaxy knows cats like noone else. He has been called anything from a cat whisperer to a cat shrink to a cat trainer. He actually prefers to be called a “cat listener.” He doesn’t like the term cat whisperer, because, he says “it connotates exclusivity. It says I can do something you can’t.” His goal is to make everyone believe that they can do what he does. According to Jackson, what it really comes down to is a case of “slowing your head down long enough to listen to cats.”

Starting Saturday,  January 7, Jackson returns with a second season of the immensely popular Animal Planet show My Cat From Hell. If you missed Season 1, you can watch highlights on Animal Planet’s website, or you can download the entire season from iTunes.

My Cat from Hell Animal Planet Jackson Galaxy

The news cat lovers have been waiting for broke yesterday afternoon: Animal Planet has renewed “My Cat from Hell” for a second season! The show features cat behaviorist extraordinaire Jackson Galaxy, who’s tough on the outside but sensitive on the inside – especially when it comes to cats and their owners. Jackson helps frustrated cat owners improve their relationships with their behaviorally challenged cat.

Cat behaviorist by day and musician by night, Jackson comes to the the rescue with a guitar case filled with cat toys and training aides. Jackson trains the humans as much as he trains the cats, since the majority of feline behavior problems are caused by humans not understanding cats’ natural behaviors. What may seem a problem to humans is perfectly natural and instinctual behavior for a cat. Jackson helps cat guardians understand the reasons why these cats are causing their owners headaches, and then works with the owners and their cats to find solutions.

Animal Planet is currently looking for “behaviorally challenged” cats to be featured in the six episodes for the 2nd season, which will begin shooting in August. If your cat’s behavior is driving you or others crazy, if you need help getting your cat to behave, or if your spouse or boyfriend has threatened that it’s him or the cat, you and your cat might have a chance to be on the show.

For more information, please visit Jackson’s website. You must live in or around Los Angeles to be considered.
