What I mean is this, Jackson Galaxy will be analysing the behaviour of Lux, a cat that has been branded as highly aggressive and even dangerous because he held his entire family hostage for a while until they called the police so that they could come out of the bathroom where they had taken refuge. You may well remember the case. Jackson went to Portland, where the incident occurred, to act a cat advocate.
It caused a lot of Internet chatter and many people felt strongly that the reason why Lux was aggressive on this occasion was because of something that happened or what was happening on an ongoing basis in the family home.
It is either the environment in which the cat lives or possibly a health problem which caused this kind of heightened aggression towards the owner.
Once a veterinarian has ruled out health problems then it must be down to what the owners of this cat are doing and what they have done which resulted in Lux becoming highly aggressive. You have to rule out socialisation, I believe, because Lux appears to be well socialised (I might be wrong on that).
Jackson Galaxy will be analysing the cat's behaviour on June 14, 2014 on the Animal Planet channel. Here are the details:
The episode featuring Lux, titled, “911, My cat’s Holding Me Hostage!” airs at 8 p.m. Saturday, June 14 on Animal Planet.I might not be able to see this because it is an American program to be watched by Americans, as I understand it, and I live in Europe. I may be able to see it on video in the future but I would like somebody to watch it and report to me as soon as possible afterwards on my website as to what happened and what Jackson galaxy says (please leave a comment on this page or this page).
This is an important example of aggressive cat behaviour and it should, I hope, shed a lot of light on the interaction between human caretaker and domestic cat and how this colours the cat's behaviour.
