Spirit Essences Report: helping the “terror,” and the terrified
By Team Cat Mojo July 22, 2013
This is part of a blog series called the Spirit Essences Report. It contains off-camera info straight from Jackson about how he helps the cats you see on My Cat From Hell. Many times behind-the-scenes, he has his clients use Spirit Essences holistic remedies. They are the same remedies he formulated with Holistic Veterinarian Dr. Jean Hofve, and he’s been employing them for over a decade.
Spirit Essences are not essential oils. They are holistic remedies, and the only veterinarian-formulated line of its kind in the world. Jackson has developed and refined the remedies based on his over 15 years of experience and the needs of his clients. They have been extremely successful, even in very difficult situations.

Kashmir – a former “terror”
Kashmir was “a terror” whose already bad behavior degraded after Brenda moved into her boyfriend Dean’s home. Kashmir began attacking both her human guardians plus Dean’s cat, Darla. Dean almost got his eye taken out, with scratches up and down his face from just one attack.
In terms of Spirit Essences, we used Ultimate Peacemaker, but really, on top of that, Safe Space for Cats had to be used as a spray around the house. So instead of spraying Peacemaker around the house, we were spraying Safe Space because honestly, you couldn’t ask for a space that had to be (feel) safer than Kashmir and Darla’s. (ed. note: this was because must of the ‘bad behavior’ had been triggered by a feral cat colony outside the home, which made the space feel dangerous and unsafe for Kashmir.)
For more about the case of Kashmir, see this post.

Ultimate Peacemaker is a 3-remedy set consisting of Bully Remedy, Peacemaker, and Self-Esteem. It’s formulated to help heal serious or long-standing aggression between animals and is a longtime best-seller in the Spirit Essences line.
Another Spirit Essences best-seller, which helps cats feel their territory is protected.
Riyo – formerly terrified
“She’s totally anti-social,” Theresa said of Riyo. Riyo spent 20+ hours under the bed in Theresa & Arman’s new condo. A central part of the couple’s homework was to help Riyo feel safe enough to come out, be a part of the family, and experience a richer, better life.
For Turbo and Riyo, really it was like the double-dose. Self-Esteem and Safe Space for Cats in the home as well as Stress Stopper as we were challenging Riyo to come out, as we were putting down her challenge line, as we were blocking the underside of the bed. It was really about soothing her as we were challenging her. So when you have Safe Space, Self-Esteem and Stress Stopper, you’re not only challenging but you’re acknowledging that the challenge is hard work and soothing them as they go.
