TV show wants applicants whose lives have been turned upside down by their cat — 11 Comments

  1. I cannot watch Mr Alaxy, he is weak in calling out both covert and overt abuse to cats by guatians, he never tackles declawing, he is too whacky, glib and cowardly for me.

    The titles of these kind of shows perpetuate ignorance and lazy thinking in both viewers an participants. These show are all about income streams from advertising, the poor animals are treated as exploitable commodity.

  2. Wow Michael and ME King ye both nailed it perfectly and I agree about cat haters,wot about maybe a UK spin off of My Cat From Hell? I have 100’s of UK m8’s who are cat lovers and I bet they too would agree about a spin off but of course Jackson Galaxy would have to agree I’m sure.

    • Yes, and I think one more will be one too many. I would like to see an emphasis on how pleasant it is to live with a domestic cat and make the programs more positive. I guess that would make them less boring in the eyes of television producers.

  3. How about a show for the neighbors of inconsiderate dog owners who are letting their pets ruin someone else’s right to enjoy their own home.
    For the record I think My Cat From Hell should be re-titled Cat Owners From Hell.
    And you are 100% on the mark Micheal humans are the first thing you look at along with environment when dealing with animal behavior.

    • “Cat Owners From Hell”

      That’s the truth of it. It has always surprised me that Jackson Galaxy allows this title to his show because it goes against what he teaches regarding cat behavior.

      • It’s actually very negative and I’m sure attracts cat haters who are hoping the cat gets dumped. And some of the owners are indeed abusive in the way they’re treating their cats. I no longer watch the show because on some level he patronizes those that see cats as evil by nature rather than lowering the boom on the negligent owners.
        Below is an image from the FB page for KitNipBox a subscription I’ve paid 30 dollars a month for and ended when I seen this cartoon posted. Portraying an owner who is literally kicking his own cat is beyond my scope of reasoning.

        • I am very surprised to see the cartoon on that website. They sell toys and treats et cetera it seems to me for domestic cats. The cartoon is highly inappropriate and fundamentally wrong. It’s a mistake to have added it to the website.

          • I believe they removed it but I take screen shots of things like that. I also cancelled my subscription. Sometimes I have to wonder. I’m going to alternate and buy boxes from legit rescues from now on several times a year. Galaxy has irritated me several times on his show by going in for a second and third jab from a cat. He didn’t used to play to the camera this way. Little Mercy was pretty much listed as a cat from hell at the shelter. She has never misbehaved with me since the first time I held her.
            Cats and horses are very similar in behavior because you can’t really force either species to do what you want without establishing a real relationship built on trust.
