“It blew my world apart.” Galaxy talking about Lux

In a preview of what is to come on the Jackson Galaxy show 8 p.m. Saturday, June 14 on Animal Planet (very soon) Jackson says that he was getting along fine with Lux during his 6 week assessment of this celebrated so called “aggressive cat” until…..

His initial assessment was like mine and many others, I suppose: Lux was a provoked and wound up cat who lost his temper. But no.

Galaxy fell in love with Lux and was getting along beautifully but suddenly Lux snapped and it shocked Galaxy. He says:

“I honestly can tell you that after 20 years of working with cats … Lux is definitely the most challenging cat I ever worked with,”

We will see what he says in his show “My Cat From Hell” but he hints that dealing with Lux has made him reassess his approach to feline behavior “problems”.

His initial general assessment is that Lux suffers from “complex physical and emotional problems”. Let’s see what happens next but reading between the lines the Lux may have inherited his aggression which is promoted under certain situations and there may be issues of inadequate socialisation. This is an important case I feel. Lux may have emotional issues created at kittenhood or inherited.
