Spirit Essences: Holistic Remedies for Animals

Every Shelter of the Month receives
a 32 oz. bottle of Stress Stopper.

Stress Stopper is formulated for all animals, not just cats.  It helps animals feel grounded and protected, which makes it great for the occasional, short-duration stresses that an animal faces: trips to the vet, thunder and lightning, fireworks, parties, vacuum cleaner, lawnmower, machinery, visitors and house guests, vacations (if the animal is boarded or has a pet-sitter), unusual noises (remodeling, construction, roadwork, etc.), arguments with other animals, repairpersons.  It is also good for animals who are left home alone all day, to prevent boredom and stress.

As you can see, Stress Stopper is an all-around remedy, which has made it one of the best-selling remedies in the Spirit Essences line.

Stretch & Scratch 

As a shelter volunteer, Joan Laisney saw scratch marks on cage walls and shelving by shelter cats’ attempts to perform natural behaviors: stretching their muscles, scratching to clean their nails and scent mark with paws.

After months of testing, Joan designed a scratcher for caged cats that is sturdy, easy to install and affordable in a tight economy.

Every Shelter of the Month receives a case of these awesome scratchers!  Thank you Stretch & Scratch!

  • attaches to most cage doors
  • mounts on the cage wall to save floor space
  • and keeps cage-cleaning easy
  • keeps cats exercised and entertained
  • encourages natural behavior
  • provides enrichment for quarantined cats
  • send scratcher home with kitty to ease stress
  • add Stretch and Scratch to your shelter’s “wish-list”
  • get scratchers donated by shelter supporters


Sunny Seat

Sunny Seat

The Sunny Seat installs in seconds to glass windows and doors and features industrial strength suction cups that hold up to an amazing 50 pounds!  They help give cats a getaway/hideaway above the floor traffic, which is especially useful in multi-cat or multi-animal households.
Our Shelter of the Month gets these great cat shelves!  Thank you Sunny Seat!


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.

    Hi Hon
    I love your show..
    I have a tuxedo cat named Ajax which he definitely… lives up to his name.
    He scratches me when I’m on the phone ..Jealous I’m thinking ‘
    but now I have a new man in my life it’s been almost a year now. He has attacked scratched. I tell him bring band aids. He
    Speaks softly, is very patient with him .. lets him smell him” gives him snacks sometimes he even comes on the bed with us ..that’s new ..but every so often will throw out a claw.. to say keep away from my mom when he walks by ..I have had cat’s All my life’
    Always had a gift with Animals. This one is very different from any other cat I grew up with. I had A Tom Cat when I was little ..he was HUGE. He beat up every cat in the neighborhood + dogs were afraid of him yet, He let me put dresses on him +stuff him in a little carriage That was Tiger ‘So miss our bond” I found him he was skinny + little Looked almost dead I weighed 40 lbs. +he was hanging off my wrist .
    He was a real Tom Cat would leave for day’s but always come home to me.
    I digress’ what is with my new Boyfriend issue?
    I know you can Help
    Love Pam

    My 10 year old daughter adores you and faithfully watches your show every week.

    We have a few pet rats and one of our new males is particularly shy. My daughter has used your slow blink on him and now they are bedt buds. Thanks for all you do.

    My wife and I enjoy your show and we ALL, Callie & Garfield, our cats included, watch it together. As we were watching one of your shows today (S4\E10) I decided to write you a few lines about something that works great with our cats. We are true believers in toys to keep our cats occupied and one of theirs, and our favorites is the laser pointer light. The laser pointer is only a couple of dollars at most and lasts for months. It provides the most bang for the buck as far exercising and relieving stress for our cats and it’s fun for us too! :-) Now true enough, you must have some common sense when using it as far as NOT pointing it in their eyes but other than that, it will have your cat running back and forth, up and down for hours. Another major benefit of the pointer is if you, the owner, may be injured or in bad health, it takes very little effort to allow you to inter-react with your cat. We feel, that with all the money we spent on “hit & miss” toys, this is a “must have” in the collection.
    Another pressing reason for this letter is there is a stay cat, which at this time is pregnant, that I need to find a home for. I know that the best way to insure this cat’s safety is to keep her but we already have two cats and my wife forbade me to bring her in the house. She is a very loving cat and I’m sure she will make someone a great companion. I have reached out to the no-kill shelters that I could find with no luck. Leftover pets referred me to another shelter with the same results, “No can help”. It really bothers my heart that people can “throw away” their animals with no remorse but until there are laws in place to prevent this, it is what it is.
    I feel you may have much more resources than I and I’m hoping that you can point me to the right place. I live in Winder, Georgia which is about 30 miles from Athens. If you can help me, in some shape, form or fashion, I’ll make arraignments to get her where she needs to be because, as of now, we do not have transportation. Thank you very much for your time and consideration concerning this matter.
