Spirit Essences Report: Bullying & Marking

SE More on Ep 6 Pip, Autumn 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.  For more info, check out the olistic remedy section of store.jacksongalaxy.com

Pip, a one-eyed black cat with cerebellar hypoplasia, and Red, his former victim.

Pip - who bullied his fellow house cat Red

Issue: Pip was a bully to Red, who took on the role of victim.  What made this scenario especially interesting is that being a one-eyed cat with cerebellar hypoplasia, Pip had permanent difficulty controlling his legs.  Because of this, cat toys that require quick jumping or pouncing are just frustrating to him, just agitating and aggravating.  He can never catch them.  He ended up bullying Red instead.  Here's what helped to solve that dynamic.

Jackson says: For Pip & Red we used Ultimate Peacemaker successfully for these guys.  But I also used Hyper Helper for Pip, because I was trying to slow down his reaction times a little bit, trying to get him to be grounded in the moment-to-moment.  So Hyper Helper actually worked for that as well.

Hyper Helper

Editorial Note: Ultimate Peacemaker is a 3-remedy set consisting of Peacemaker, Bully Remedy, and Self Esteem.  It's formulated to help heal deep, serious, or long-standing aggression/conflicts between animals, and is one of the long-standing best-sellers of the Spirit Essences line.

Autumn - a young kitten whose spraying put big-time stress on the family.

Autumn - who was peeing everywhere, even on the microwave!

Issue: Autumn was the source of a lot of family stress, both emotionally, financially, and time and energy-wise, too.  This was because of the incredible degree of marking that Autumn did, even peeing on the kitchen countertops, on the microwave, on the bed and couches.  It was an intense problem situation.  Here's part of how Jackson helped solve it.

Safe Space for CatsJackson says: For Autumn, it was all about Safe Space for Cats.  After her initial crazy freak out time outside (Note: see this post where Jackson talks more about the history Autumn had), we had to reintroduce the environment to her as being safe and that's what we did with Safe Space for Cats.

Editorial Note: Safe Space for Cats is one of the long-standing best-sellers of the Spirit Essences line.  It was formulated by Jackson and Dr. Jean Hofve, DVM to help construct an energetic "bubble" around your cat.  In other words, this remedy helps reassure the cat that her territory is safe and protected from intruders.  Users notice a drop in urine-marking, aggression toward other animals, and increased self-confidence.
