Hey Austin! Jackson has been filming new episodes of My Cat From Hell in your fair city, and he’ll be back in November — this time, to talk with you!
What’s Going On in Austin?
This event is a double-header combo open to the public and absolutely FREE. Cats R Cool and One Picture Saves a Life, presented by The Animal Rescue Site, features Jackson Galaxy of Animal Planet’s hit T.V. show My Cat From Hell and photographer Seth Casteel of Underwater Dogs (the best-selling photography book of 2012).
There will be some extra special VIP stuff going down, too, just for staff and volunteers with shelters and rescue groups. Scroll down for all the info and the link to the application for shelters.
What’s Jackson Doing There?
This event will mark Jackson’s second “Cats Uncaged Tour” date (the first was in Seattle on Aug. 10), where he shares his visionary insights about how to proactively enrich the environments of shelter cats to increase adoptions, and help see every cat ‘uncaged.’
Award winning photographer Seth Casteel will teach the basics of photographing pets to improve the image of rescue and adoption, and in turn, get more animals into forever homes.
And of course, the day wouldn’t be complete without:
- adoptions on site

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.
