Am I A Good Cat Mom? (ft. Jackson Galaxy from My Cat From Hell!)

Am I A Good Cat Mom? (ft. Jackson Galaxy from My Cat From Hell!)


(scratching)
– Come here, dude! Charles, no, don’t get her! Please, God, just get along today before the Cat Man comes! (cat meowing)
(spring bounces) Okay, today a is very exciting day because I get to meet
my personal cat hero, Jackson Galaxy. And I’m like, straight up nervous, like chills-level, I don’t know if you can see that, like chills-level excited about this. Just basically everything
I’ve learned about being a, I hope, semi-decent cat parent, is from My Cat From Hell,
Jackson Galaxy’s show. OK, here’s my number one question. I work from home and when I’m
home, Charles is destructive. He wants to like scratch
up the paper towels, he’ll knock stuff off the counter, he’ll do anything to get my attention. But when I’m not home,
he doesn’t do anything. I come home and he’s asleep. And I’m like, “If you’re
gonna knock over paper towels, “can you do it while I’m
trying not to record a video?” See? Oh, watch out for that. It’s really good, though. I’m worried he’s gonna
tell me I spoil Charles because that’s what Ella says. I’m just treating him the way
he deserves to be treated. (kissing) I think he can tell I’m trying too hard. Somebody just painted these. These are my absolute favorites. Oh my God. Charles, do you know you’re
about to meet a celebrity? Do I? Oh, there’s even art of
Charles on the fridge. I forgot that one. Maybe I am a little obsessed with my cats. (doorbell rings) I think they’re here! I’m like so excited! (exhales loudly) You’re a cool guy. Hi! – Hello! – Oh my god! Oh my god! – I’m good, how’re you doing? – I’m good. Oh my God, this is so exciting for me! – Wow, this is exciting for me too! This is pretty exciting. Look at you! – This is Charles. – What’s up, Charles? – He’s very friendly, he’s super social. But it’s not just Charles, actually. – You’ve got two. – We’ve got two. – What’s up, Lady? – That’s Lady. – Hi, honey! – Hi. – What’s up, baby doll? – She’s an exhibitionist. – Look at this, right on cue. – Should I call you Mr. Galaxy? – Yeah. No. (Hannah laughs) – We’re thinking about cutting
ourselves off at three cats. – Here? – Yeah. (Jackson scoffs) – Easily you could have double that. (angelic music) – This is Charles when we first got him. – [Jackson] Oh my God! – [Hannah] I know. – How old is he now? – He’s two–he’s almost two. – That was just two years ago? – Yeah. – I work from home, so I spend a lot, a lot of time with them. Ella was the one who suggested, like well you know, cats
do do better in pairs, we should just get another cat. And that’s where we decided
to get an older cat. Lady’s actually seven years old. – Wow. – Yeah, she’s seven years old. Should I hold her while I talk about her? She actually had babies that were like, “Wow, award-winning kitties!” – I have a house full of cats and on a good day, they tolerate each other. On a bad day they don’t. And nobody is like, “Oh
you’re my best friend.” Nobody. – Well that kind of brings me to like, what I seek your expertise in, Mr. Galaxy. – I just wanted to have a
little special effect, “Ding!” – Oh, we can do that. – Okay, here we go. Ding!
(bell dings) – Charles and Lady confuse
the hell out of me. They’ll either be licking
each other from head to toe in a way that makes you feel like you shouldn’t even be watching. They’ll be cuddling, kissing, spooning, but then sometimes, he
just goes after her. And she is clearly giving like, “I don’t wanna play right now. “I don’t wanna play right now, Charles.” She’ll go into the screechy kitty mode. – And does he hurt her? – No, he doesn’t hurt her. Well sometimes she’ll get a
little scrape on her neck. – Because you just said it started with, “She doesn’t want to play,
she doesn’t want to play.” So he wants to play. Well he’s playing, and
she doesn’t want to play. You’ve already identified the dialogue. If a cat is just geared up to play, especially if they have that sort of kitten-y, Denis the
Menace thing going on– – Yeah, he’s not two, he’s
like a year and a half. He’ll be two in February. – So he’s still kind of
verging on teenager-hood. (Hannah groans) We all know. – [Jackson] Does he do this all the time? Is he like a monkey bar cat? – [Hannah] What are you doing to him? – See, no but here,
this is what I’m saying. Actually, this is perfect. Taylor, is it?
– Well… (laughing) – From this state here, if Taylor just doesn’t do much of anything like Lady would, he’s gonna get more and more and more– – Like, into it. – Stimulated. Now he’ll go to her and
give her a hard time. – I’m like, “Oh he wants to play.” So I’ll spend all this
time playing with him and then just boom, go after her, straight up pounce on her back. – No offense, but that means
she’s a better toy than you. – She is. Dammit. – She presents what is
irresistible to a cat, which is prey, you know what I mean? She does that back-up thing. She’s like, “Don’t hurt
me, don’t hurt me,” and then it’ll almost
encourage him to do more. Number one, you would wanna step up
the play a little bit. – Will he ever calm down? – Yes. – Oh God, I hope so, because I love Charles but, it’s not like 15 minutes of play a day, it’s like an hour. – Which actually makes perfect sense when you think about it– – Charles! Sorry. Okay but sorry, can we
pick up from spirits? (dishes clank) (laughing) – Do you ever try to walk him? – Well… I mean I can show you what happens. I have a harness for him. So he loves the harness,
he gets super excited, he asks to go on a walk, and we get outside. Oh wow, he’s being really good. Normally he just stands there. – This is great. See now this, what he’s doing right now, I guarantee you that by the time we get
back into your house, how long he’s out here, he will not be as monkey bars. It’s like cat TV when
they look out the window and they just zone. And by the way, just looking
at his body language right now, he is 1000% comfortable out here. That’s half the battle. You got him on a harness, you
got him used to the leash. There must be cats in there, or ghosts. (laughing) – Okay but sorry, can
we pick up from spirits? (dishes clank) Charles, look! – And then he’s in, right? So then he’s in. So everyday… And now he gets this because
he was such a good boy. I mean this is how you’re
going to solve your problem. Boom. – This is everything I’ve
ever wanted and more. – If this was only my show right now, how happy we would all be. We’re like, “Oh my god the
cat freaking did something.” You know what I mean? Because when you bring an entire film crew into someone’s house, cats, they’re gone. Over 10 seasons and let’s say 120 or 30 different homes, 10% tops of the cats in the homes made themselves available
on the first day. Now, everyday you get up,
you do your own thing, right? But make this a part of your routine and make it before feeding because he’ll be motivated. Now listen, he’s not yet two years old, he’s gonna be like this for a little bit. You got another year of this
before he hits a down slope and then you’re gonna miss it. – Then you’re gonna be like,
– Then he’s gonna be like Lady?
– “My boy’s growing up.” Well she’s not gonna miss shit. (laughing) She’s gonna be totally
happy about the situation. – Going outside to all the
sights and sounds of the world for five minutes is enough? That’s so possible. – It’s a little wishful.
– That’s so possible. – It’s a little wishful? – Five minutes? No.
– 10? Oh wait look, look, look! So that’s what he does cause he wants the warm spot to sleep. At least he left her alone. He didn’t chase her out of there. – Well no, because again,
you’ve taken just the edge off a little bit, you know what I mean? You put him on your shoulder to let him know it’s feeding time? You know you don’t do that. – No I don’t. – You do that because you love it. – I do that because I love it, but also because when I’m
cooking I don’t put him up here. So that’s me trying to teach him, “Hey, if you’re up there,
you’re gonna get food “but if you’re not up there…” – Does that work? – We’ll see in two years. – You can’t feed a better food than this. – And they come like this, see? Just totally frozen. – Just like that. I’m very, uber happy and proud of you. No I’m serious, Hannah. (Hannah crying) – That’s all I’ve ever wanted! – My little cat protege, I mean honestly. Look at you: Cat-ified to the nines, feeding raw food. I mean, honestly. You took him for a damn walk. – This is the best day of my life. I will say Ella took him
for a walk on Sunday. – That’s amazing! – Yeah, we share a responsibility. – By putting them on the same schedule, by having them energetically – peak and valley at the same time, their relationship will be better. – Wow. Okay. I got some notes. – [Jackson] That’s right! – Oh, this has been so amazing! – They were so excited when I got here, now they’re like, “Shit.” – Jackson, thank you
so much for being here. Guys, thank you so much for watching. If you wanna find out more wonderful Jackson Galaxy tips and tricks, you can check him out at
Youtube at JacksonGalaxy or on Instagram at TheCatDaddy. And you’re going on tour? – I’m going on tour. We start here in L.A. on November 4th. Wanna come? – Yeah. – Right on. If you go to my website,

  1. This might have already been asked, but where do you find the raw food they mentioned in the video. My second oldest kid (black American short hair) gets urinary crystals, and seems to detest any and all wet food from a can. He'll eat a cheese stick the little kids dropped on the floor, but nooo… the expensive cat food? Not a chance.

    + my routine this summer is to wake up snuggle and bond the cats then feed them, give them water then my day starts ?

  38. My poor cat doesn't even have a litterbox. My father wont allow it. She has no places to play in the living room either. Even her food bowl is in my room, almost as if she doesn't live here. Someday I will move out and treat her the way she deserves! We're talkin cat toys, perches, trees, indoor forestry, and a fuckin litterbox baby!!! XD

  39. Am I the only person that has cats that love each other?

  43. so nice knowing my 3yr old and 10yr old cats don't have to get along 24/7 ;A; they love each other, but the 3 yr old is definitely more rambunctious

  44. OMG when she was talking about playing for hours on end I can relate. My vet told me walking my cat wasn’t a good idea so I stopped. Scared I’ve lost any progress now if I start again.

  50. Omg my dream is meet Jacson Galaxy ?

  51. Thank you for making this video! Super and lightning for me! My cat David is a lot like your cat Charles, ironically enough, his Target is named Charlemagne which means Charles the Great (named after his father whose name just happens to be Charles LOL I'm so ADHD). anyhow, I'm going to take some of the stuff that Jackson recommended to you for Charles and apply it to David! Thanks for a super adorable and informative video!

  52. Yep Jackson galaxy is a lesbian man A lesbian magnet why he’s so sexy I just want to lick ? on him his lollipop ? c Cotton candy sugar sweet let’s see that beautiful man meow meow ?????☝️????☝️?????❤️?

  61. What type of food is that?

  62. I love Jackson ❤️?

  63. You're not a good cat mom. Because … you're not a cat.

  64. What food do you feed them?

  65. I love the way you “catified” your house. Can you please make a video about the different items you have bought for your fur babies?? That would definitely be a video that I’d watch to help my little Flinty.

  66. I think hairless cats should be a banned, it's so cruel.

  67. I feed my cat raw food. Can I have a hug?

  68. In another world these two would have dated lol. They vibed so easily together!

  69. I LOVE Jackson and the fact he actually said to you that you are the perfect Cat Protege is HUGE. I had to switch over to a much healthier easy digestible diet for my feral in food kitty. She is 13 now so a senior citizen. Shhh When I told her that she looked at me as if she was saying "WHAT! No human slave YOU are a senior Citizen biatch!" I swear kids now days they got no respect for their parents. LOL

  70. "This is everything I've ever wanted and more!" – Speaking my heart for me, Hart~

  71. She's so cute oh my lord where do i find a girl like that?? ?

  72. I wuv how wrinkly they are they are so cute even as hairless cat ???

  73. I had a HUGE grin on my face during the ENTIRE video!

  74. OMG: You 2 are adorable together? I know tho Jackson is married…

  75. Does anyone know what brand she's feeding her cats?

  76. Why buy when there are cats in the shelter and streets need a home? HOw selfish humans are.

  77. Who thinks he should do a video call with Rachel and Jun to look at their cats?

  78. Lmao, she’s..a better toy than you(x hahahaa

  79. Jackson is great! You, however, are awful!

  80. Jackson Galaxy is a really talented cat whisperer, but it's very suspicious that he lost so much weight so quickly. I admit, he looks really good now that he's slim, but I've heard rumors that he lost the weight by going on a strictly cat diet and eating nothing but cats. If that's true, it's messed up.

  81. Hearing Jackson Galaxy swear is a surreal experience

  82. I love the cat shelves with plants!

  83. My Cat from Hell is one of the only good reality shows because it genuinely teaches a lot, and doesn't seem overdramatized much. The goal is not to make the cats look as evil or troublesome as possible- it's to show their recovery. Love it.

  84. Where do you get that cat food from?

  85. Where is the cat wall thingy from?????

  86. What raw food were you feeding them?

  87. Jackson plays guitar?

  88. I have a question! My cats are the same , eslo (female) 11 months and koba (male) 6 months. Koba likes to go after her when she clearly doesn’t want to play anymore. She’ll growl, hiss, and scream. And he won’t stop pouncing and getting her. Should I separate them? Or? Its confusing and alarming aswell bc eslo plays with him alot until he makes her uncomfortable I guess and she lets him know she doesn’t want anymore. Someone help 🙁 google aint shit

  89. I could never have been happier for a person thank you so much for sharing this

  90. This is really random, but I have to thank you. Your video actually inspired me to look into smallbatchpets raw food, and my cats are THRIVING. I even switched my dog over to the brand, and he’s never been better. It’s the little things! Thank you!

  91. What is Charles breed, because he looks hairless but I can see a little bit of fur on him (compared to lady who has none) is that just how the kittens are or is Charles a unique little guy.

  92. PLEASE tell me where you got the amazing framed art with your cats from the beginning of the video????!!!

  93. I felt that fan girl excitement through the screen , ahhhhh xD

  94. I love ur cat a spinks snowshoe baby hmmm beautiful

  95. are you a man or a woman, terrible how you move,.
