Jackson’s 1st Google Hangout

Google Hangout Replay

Thanks so much

Thanks to all of you on #TeamCatMojo who made it out there onto the inter-webs to be part of the craziness that is cutting edge technology, mixed with a bunch o’ Cat Mojo.  What we call that around here is Cat Mojo Google+ Hangout!

We’re putting a replay of it down below for anyone who missed it.  You can also see the replay at Jackson’s YouTube Channel: YouTube.com/JacksonGalaxy

Now, for future Google+ Hangouts (yes, there will be more at some point)…know this…

There are two ways to experience a Google+ Hangout.  One doesn’t require a Google+ account, the other does.  Listen carefully…

If you want to join in and participate…

If you want to type questions into the Q&A window during the Hangout, vote on other people’s questions, and do other cool stuff like that, you’ll need a Google+ account.  So if you want to participate, make sure you get a Google+ account at plus.google.com.  That way you’ll be ready to go when the next one rolls around.

If you just want to watch and observe…

If you just want to watch and observe without having access to a Google+ Hangout Q&A window, all you have to do is go to Jackson’s YouTube channel at the time the Hangout is happening LIVE.  You’ll basically be using YouTube to sorta ‘watch  TV,’ except it’s not TV, it’s a Google+ Hangout.  Go to YouTube.com/JacksonGalaxy on the Google+ Hangout day and time, simple as that.

And now, come to think of it, there’s actually a third way to experience a Google+ Hangout, and that’s after-the-fact.  Which is what we have right here (below).  A video of the Google+ Hangout that happened on Thur. Dec. 12, 2013 at 5:30 p.m. PST.

Before we let you go to enjoy the replay here, a quick tip: stay tuned because Jackson enjoyed all of you so much, he wants to do this Google+ Hangout thing again sometime.

    We watched the replay of your first Google hangout yesterday afternoon. We heard you say you don’t think dry food is good for cats. We feed our three cats wet food twice a day. We usually add canned tuna, ground turkey or chicken to it and they have the dry food always available. When we take away their dry food, how much more wet food should we feed them. Thanks. As first time cat guardians, (staff actually), we appreciate the info you provide us.

    I have two cats. Well they also have me. The tale is long. Another day I’ll share about Fritz who at 4 weeks survived 4 pitbulls and Cali who came from a rescue and has no problem bitching you out.
    If I could only record Fritz at night with his full on conversations in tones and songs, while running through the house. It’s amazing.

    Jackson I love your show and your incites into the cat world! I also love cats and wish to do the best thing for my kitties.
    When oh when are you coming to Canada, specifically Penticton (my house lol)??
    I have two cats that are brothers, they are not “Cats from hell” but they do have issues.
    They scratch the furniture as well as they fight. There is no specific aggressor, I feed the one I believe is the leader first but nothing seems to help.

    Also I lost a cat (Mouse) to kidney failure :( and know that it was because I fed her dry food. How much and what type of wet food should I feed to them? Please help ….. For the kitties. lol

    Jackson ,
    I am an avaid watcher of your show cats from hell.
    I own a pure bred Maine Coon cat which I received from my daughter,
    When Snoopy needs his claws trimmed or his coat groomed,
    He becomes very aggressive to a point that, any vet I take him to
    will only do them if they put him to sleep which is costly ,and I feel
    is unsafe to constantly do,their other solution is to put him down,
    I personally can’t do this because he’s only aggressive when it comes
    to grooming ,cutting claws, or petting to much. He loves playing
    and will fetch them and initate play time. I have tried using calming
    collars ,and calming sprays,to no avail. I tried to shave him due to matting
    he’s a long haired cat and loves taking bathes .So grooming him
    is scary ,but needs to be done .Any suggestions would be so appreciated ,
    Along with suggestions will be tried . Snoopy is beautiful and loved
    very much loved. I’m just trying to get him to be more loving,and
    receptive to grooming and trimmi.g of his claws which he uses
    knowing it upsets us when he scratches in a mean way and bites
    at the same time .

    Jackson,
    I watch your show My Cat from Hell consistently and I have a general idea of what I need to do but I was hoping I could have some conformation if at all possible. I have a dear friend of mine that recently has come to a predicament housing wise. I want to offer her a place in my home but the issue is simple: she has two female cats that she cannot let go of for various reasons and I have three males. My boys are relatively well mannered and mellow but tend to not react well with other cats after the death of our original female a few years ago. I worry that if I allow her to come here with her cats that the felines will end up in a death match. I was thinking that the best way to go about it, should we bring the cats into our home, would be to first start a controlled eating schedule with the visual blocker. as well as trying the room swaps. Would you suggest we add anything else to this regime? I truly want to help my friend by giving both her and her cats a home were they’re welcome, I just don’t know how to integrate our two families.

    I need some advice, I just adopted a 14 week tuxedo kitty that is missing an eye. My 12 year old autistic son (who is very well behaved) is worried because leela will not come out of the kennel (which I keep open 24/7). She won’t eat or go to the bathroom. I have toys and approach her off and on through the day. But she is still scared.. any advice?

    Here is what my Vet has for the idea of NO dry food…

    http://www.flemingvet.com/site/view/226638_FelineHealthAlert.pml

    While I feed Dusty dry when he was little, I did change to only dry when I was gone for an extended leave. He had pretty much Friskie Fresh Catch his whole life. In the last years as more natural food places came out I would get grain free and other types for him to try. No meal! He lived to 21 yrs, 8 months & 2 weeks! We had to say goodbye 2 yrs ago last Oct. We think he had a brain tumor or stroke. If it was not for that he was awesome! Had his heart echocardiogramed before he left me & the specialist said he had a 3 yr old heart. No clogging, very little aging of values etc. His eyes we had checked by a specialist, same thing very little retinal degeneration. We think he was a Nebelung. He was born in 1990 just around the time the breed started. BEST first cat to have! My new baby he sent me from heaven, Sterling, is a two tone grey that looks close to him.

    As for Guitars…I have an Aquarius Guitar. Haven’t touched it for about 40 yrs now I think. Great condition. I think I’m keeping it though for my niece but we’ll see.

    Everyone has such good and important questions, but I wonder if you noticed this disclaimer just above the comments section: <>

    Hi Jackson .Just thought I would give you a shout out on your show.It is really a great show.I have been a cat lover all my life and it seems like the more you hang with cats the more you can really get into just how they communicate.
    Our latest cat BooBear has a knack of putting food in our shoes at night and giving us a beautiful grin when we find the food as we are putting our shoes on in the morning.
    My husband says this is his way of making sure that we are well taken care of while we are out and when we get home he scratches on his post as soon as we walk in the door.
    Our cats over the years live until they are as old as 26 years old.I hope all your cats and dreams stay golden and p.s. cool cat tat

    Have a great season and stay cat cool!!

    Hi Jackson! I don’t quite know how to contact you by email, but I have a very defiant cat. She chews excessively. Anything she can get her teeth on. Mostly cords and wood, we’ve tried sour apple spray and even pure vinager. Nothing happened to her when she was little. We’ve had her since she was a kitten and she has been doing this for a while now and we’ve ran out of ideas. If you could give us some advice it would really help.

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.
