    Re: My Cat From Hell on Animal Planet

    This letting pets run so they won't be depressed thing. You know what depresses an animal? Getting hit by a car. For whatever reason last weekend everyone in my neighborhood had cats and dogs out running loose in their yards and subsequently in the street. I had a dog run from the side (I didn't even see it) and get under my car and then tangled up in my wheels before it ran off and I was driving real slow that day under 20 mph. Couple days later I felt like I was driving through a gauntlet of cats on another street in town darting out of nowhere in front of my car.

    Few things in the pet world drive me crazier than than people letting their animals run unsupervised and uncontrolled.

    ^ Yep, agree. This last weekend (and some days beforehand) were especially bad for pets, whether inside or out, with all the at-home fireworks...poor dogs in the neighborhood, especially, were completely out of sorts from the idiots putting off M-80's and such in the street. :-( A coworker was complaining to me that he didn't get to enjoy the fireworks show they drove a half hour to go see...he had to take his dog (English bulldog) back to the car because he was upset. I'm like, you took your dog to a fireworks show?! Wow.

    Where Did Animal Planet Star Jackson Galaxy Get Married?
    Oh! Considering that Jackson is a cat behaviorist, I assumed he had a cat (or several cats) as pets. Or maybe he does have cats, too, but they only took the dog to the wedding since cats are harder to control. A dog will pretty much stick by your side in public or can be called back if they wander but a cat will take off and not look back!

    Jackson has some cats. He features them sometimes on his videos.

    I just have to say, a lot of the time (on this show), the only thing that the cat needs is FUN. Someone to play with! LOL Jackson says, "Here's some toys, Matilda, you're appointed to be the play buddy". wth? Um. Yeahhhhh.. Not ALL episodes, but A LOT of'm that I've seen anyway. Just play with them and bond better!!!

    I have 3 cats that live inside/outside. They can roam in the backyard, period. I bought green chicken meshed wire .. cut it (longways) in half. Took an industrial staple-gun and attached it to the top of our fence ALL THE WAY AROUND. I haven't had a single cat get out (OR in) about 11 years, since putting it up.
    I don't think animals should run free either.. it's not the right way to raise them. 4th of July should be outlawed! It's like D-Day here..just awful.
    All things beautiful do not have to be full of color to be noticed; in
    life that which is unnoticed has the most power.

    Re: My Cat From Hell on Animal Planet

    Just caught up on 2 weeks of episodes. 2 of 4 fixes required "mood altering drugs"?? Any idea what those might have been? I know there's a kitty version of Prozac but it tends to leave them in a zombie state. He used to use flower essences and those should have been enough or at least worth trying.

    I didn't see that episode, but I had a cat who was on "kitty Prozac". Sorry, I can't remember it's actual name. It did NOT turn him into a zombie! He was an indoor/outdoor cat and every winter he went nuts! He hated cold weather and so would take out his frustration on me by glaring at me and then peeing on the furniture. He would beg for me to open the door for him but when I did and cold air hit his face he would swipe at me with his paw. The drug just made him more "normal" He would still ask for the door to be open but then would still glare but no longer swipe. It also stopped the "rage peeing". Other than that, I saw no difference in him. He still liked to play, eat, cuddle and get under my feet. It simply controlled his rage. I would wean him off it in the spring and start it back up late fall. Perhaps the cats you saw turned into "zombies" were given too large a dose.

    Re: My Cat From Hell on Animal Planet

    Thanks Photobabe. Still, it shouldn't be the first choice, not in this age. And I apologize, I believe he described it as mood-stabilizing, not mood-altering.

    He's also not doing cats a favor pushing "meats" without clarifying that just "meat" needs to be balanced. Carnivores don't/can't eat just "meat".
