    Jackson is my Fav! I live in Manhattan Beach and have two precious Persian kitties. Wondered they are “hellish” enough to be on the show though, they absolutely do a few naughty things. Keep up the great work Jackson!

    We had two cats, 1 calico and 1 sort of like a calico. We had to have our oldest the calico put to sleep, afterward the little cat only wants to play with string , I think she misses the older cat

    My husband was a cat lover. He was also the love of my life. Cat loving men are underestimated and under-valued.

    When my husband died, my girls paid respects to him in his last minutes, and.mourned his death. My felines are proof that cats bond strongly with their humans. My husband was proof that loving cats is an investment that pays dividends.

    Thank you, Cat Daddy, for all you do!

      Hi Tricia,

      I’m sorry for your loss. When I read your comment, I just had to write because I feel the same way about my cat-loving man and understand exactly what you mean.

      I grew up with dogs and was definitely NOT a cat person. Out of my love for him, I tolerated HIS cat for 10 years and came to appreciate cats for their self-sufficiency and the love they can show to their owners. When she died at 19 yo, my hubby was adopted by Domino, the sweet tuxedo cat that had been coming around for ~3 weeks.

      I guess you could say as Jackson said, “My husband found the cat person in me” and I am now “cat mommy” to a beautiful 16 lb. “torbie” named Speckles (and Midnight our 14 lb. boy stray).

      I think it takes a special kind of man to be an open cat-lover–confident in his manhood, not afraid to show his feelings, and is able to respect and love others who have a mind of their own. It sounds like your man had those qualities, i know my hubby does, and Jackson seems that way on his show. Coincidence? I think not!

      IMO, those are great qualities for a man whose married to a woman who can “think for herself”. And I can honestly say, like you, that my hubby is the love of my life, and I know his cat babies would mourn him if something was to happen to him.

      Please take care of yourself and derive comfort from your feline children during this sad time.

      And Jackson, thank you for helping us to understand our fur babies better. Keep up the great work! Love your show!

    I told a lot of people to watch, that normally don’t see Jackson on Animal Planet, The overall show was very silly, they could’ve given him at least a few more minutes for all the good he does. Silly ABC, honestly, lounge lizards got more air time. At least the folks I told to watch know his website and show on Animal Planet (If they show it before 2am).

    I have four cats, Tee Tee, Pocket, Fitzie, and Bean. Two have been ill lately and one had surgery for bladder stones. I am writing to encourage people with male cats to buy an RX diet from the vet to avoid the pain and sometmes death of male cats. Yes, it is expensive, but just think of the potential vet bills if something goes goes wrong with your cat.

    I adore Jackson and appreciate the helpful advice he gives to cat owners.

    My community in Georgetown, Delaware is getting ready to open a “no kill” Safe Haven sanctuary and I’ll be proud to volunteer there.

    Support your localshelter, and feed homeless animals whenever you can.

    Even tho I am not a cat person, I love what you do. Thank you for all your hard work.


We regret that Jackson does not answer questions posted in the comments. This is due to his demanding schedule and the high volume of requests he receives. But most importantly, since he has not met your cat, it would be contrary to his approach for him to give specific personalized advice for your specific situation. That being said, general questions and issues are addressed throughout this blog, in his book Cat Daddy and of course, the show My Cat From Hell.
