Get ready for season two of Animal Planet’s My Cat From Hell staring everyone’s favorite cat behaviorist, Cat Daddy Jackson Galaxy! The first of six brand new episodes will air on January 7. This season is full of fabulous felines and the challenges they face with their cat guardians, who sometimes need a little training themselves.
Here’s what Jackson has to say about the upcoming season:
“Season two definitely ups the ante from both the feline perspective and the human perspective. In a couple of the 12 cases highlighted this season, I saw behavior that I have never seen before in all my years working with cats. It was amazingly challenging and equally rewarding. As you watch, I hope you will learn something new about cats in general, as well as the cats you share your life with, because at the end of the day, that’s what MCFH is all about.”
If you’re a regular reader of Moderncat, then you’re already a cat lover and you know the incredible benefits feline family members bring to our lives — challenges and all. There’s no question you should be watching My Cat From Hell, but I’d like to point out that this show has a much broader mission than just entertaining cat lovers. This show can help other people discover just how great the human-feline bond can be. In the show, Jackson helps people overcome the issues they are having with their cats, which might have otherwise led to the cat being given away, or worse, surrendered to a shelter where the cat’s future would likely be grim. Through behavioral changes and environmental modifications, he helps solidify the relationship between guardian and cat. The way I see it, this show can help keep more cats in happy homes — that means fewer homeless cats on the streets and reduced numbers of cats being killed in shelters.
So, I want you to be watching on January 7, but I want you to help spread the word to others outside the inner circle of cat lovers. Do you know someone who has a cat but things aren’t going so well? Get them to watch, too. Like I said, this isn’t just a show for avid cat lovers, it’s for all potential cat lovers, too. And you know, cats make the world a better place.
