Skip to comments.My Cat From Hell's Jackson Galaxy: People Read Cats Through Dog-Colored Glasses
Posted on 07/22/2013 6:44:48 AM PDT by Fawn
Cat owners need to become more literate ... about reading cats.
Cat behaviorist Jackson Galaxy wraps up his fourth season of Animal Planet's My Cat From Hell on Saturday (8/7c) and boils down why people misunderstand their feline friends. "We really try to read them through dog-colored glasses and are trying to look for these very specific types of responses that are very much human-based," Galaxy tells TVGuide.com. "And if we don't see them, we assume that they don't care.

Will you ping list please? :)
We love him too, TO MOCK!
This is the biggest douche bag in tv history and that is saying a lot.
Not only is he douchey in his dopey empty guitar case, but he also is douchey in the fact that he acts all appalled when people are questioning spending $6,000 on cancer surgery for a cat that (and he is all “Yay, I succeeded in my cat whispery) is supposedly a pet because IT RUNS PAST YOU.
This is my family’s guilty pleasure (and we are a 2 cat family, so no cat haters here) because he is an idiot and an a-hole on top of it.
P.S. His name alone earns him Douchebaggery status. We won’t even go into the facial hair.
“This is the biggest douche bag in tv history and that is saying a lot.”
That is a major achievement in a world where Guy Fieri exists.
I’ve never heard of him before so can’t comment on the DB status, other than what I’ve read in this article, and I agree with you. He sounds like a DB!
But I will say I’ve had cats that have definite dog-like behavior. I think some of their behavior toward humans can be shaped by how we reinforce the behaviors we like. And they in turn train us to accept deviations from as part of being a cat owner.
My husband makes me change the channel when this guy comes on. I can’t stand to look at him either, but the cats are cute.
Never watched it...
I have. Once you get past the strangeness of the “star”, there are some interesting strategies and outcomes.
.....Me too. Besides better to watch him then some of the “junk” that is tv at the present time. :)=^..^=
It is interesting that Jackson’t only advanced degree is in acting (M.A. from the U of Iowa) but the way he strings clues together into a story that helps him devise a better life for everyone in the house is way more than I have ever learned from a credentialed therapist. Not the most technically proficient perhaps but an extremely good writer, listener and clever cat behaviorist because he is a good observer of the human condition and can make the right story.
Don’t like his fiance much but JG is way cool. :)
Every time I think this forum is made up of good, kind people, someone like you posts and smashes my image of FR. You belong on a forum like DU. Someone who posts such hate, deception and mockery on a man like this is eye opening. I hope the hate mongering and bitterness in your life decreases for you. Maybe start reading the Bible instead of having your family sit in front of a tv show to mock. Not good to raise your kids teaching them to mock, bully or make fun of a good hearted man.
Don’t know much about his fiance, but if you think JG is way cool... well, you just lost cool points with me. :)
(J/K, but seriously, you think he is ‘way cool’????)
Because I think Jackson Galaxy (which, WTF kind of name is That???) is an idiot, you have lost faith in Free Republic?
Dang Fawn, thicken up the skin.
And P.S. He is a DB. That doesn’t make me a ‘hate monger’, it makes me have an opinion about a guy who MOCKS PEOPLE WHO DON’T LIKE THEIR EYEBALLS BEING CLAWED OUT BY A-HOLE CATS.
I don’t expect anyone to look like Romney. I like metal music, I like tatoos, I like lots of nonconformist looks.
I also recognize someone who is looking nonconformist for nonconformist douchebaggery sake.
In other words, I recognize a poser. And Jackson “What the hell kind of douchebag name is that” Galaxy is a poser.
Maybe that’s my issue, I recognize a poser.
“someone like you posts and smashes my image of FR. “
Too bad you were raised by Dr. Spock. That childish view of the world probably has you in meltdown every day.
