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.

Penny, the cat who was out to kill her fellow housemate
Issue: Penny was bent on viciously attacking and even trying to kill Puck, her fellow 17-year old house cat.
Jackson says: Spirit Essences-wise, for Penny and Puck? Obviously: Ultimate Peacemaker. Penny was territorially bullying Puck. And Puck just needed Self-Esteem; and on top of that of course, Stress Stopper. Y'know, especially for Puck. We couldn't afford to have this cat go downhill physically because of the strain put upon her mentally.
Spirit Essences Jackson put to use
Ultimate Peacemaker, a 3-remedy set which consists of:
Tony, 12-year old cat who spent years spraying in the house
Issue: Tony was a 12-year old rescue cat who had spent almost as many years spraying the house of his guardians Betty & Cliff.
Jackson says: For Tony, Safe Space for Cats. It was really about making sure we were clearing the outside of intruders, allowing him to form a new relationship with the territory based on the fact that it was safe. So he had to believe that it was safe (Safe Space for Cats) but then we had to cash that check and make it safe [shoo away the wildlife and neighborhood cats outside].
