Vicious cat gets celebrity therapist

This is Lux, the “violence-prone” cat, who looks perfectly ordinary (and not especially Himalayan). As you can see, he’s behind bars for now. The wannabe therapist, on the other hand, a guy who calls himself Jaxson Galaxy, looks weird indeed. (Don’t take our word for it; follow the link).

We take back everything we ever said about how dopey Portland was, in the case of the crazed cat. The Oregon refuge for weirdos is worse than all that, and the story has taken a further turn for the weird.

In addition, some of the details of the original story seem to stem from the imagination of the so-called “reporters,” rather than from any basis in the world of material fact.

The large cat that attacked a baby and trapped an Oregon family in a bedroom touched off an Internet uproar that worries Jackson Galaxy, star of Animal Planet’s “My Cat from Hell.”
Cats don’t become ferocious felines that turn on their families for no reason, says the cat behavior expert, who is heading to Portland soon to work with the 4-year-old part-Himalayan pet named Lux. Galaxy will film the visit for his show’s fifth season, which kicks off April 26.

Here’s a news story with a snippet of the 911 call (complete with cat screech off mic), and, images of the devil cat his ownself; he doesn’t look especially himalayan (he looks like a domestic longhair, actually) and isn’t 22 pounds either (imagine that, the original news story was full of fabrications. Well, that’s how the news biz rolls).

The cat was put in a shelter, but the family is now saying they want to give him a second chance with the help of the cat whisperer guy.

We wouldn’t go so far as Mr Galaxy, who is reputed to believe that “there are no bad cats.” But we’re sticking to our original conclusion: there’s a pussy in the house, and it’s the guy who let a cat corner him and his family. Good thing the family pet wasn’t a honey badger.

    Jackson Galaxy, Cat Whisperer? Just when I thought there wouldn’t be any more laughs out of this story…

    A Cat Whisperer?!?

    For the love of all that’s holy, somebody send these maroons a box of water pistols, fer cryin’ out loud!

    I hope Lux eats them all while they sleep, and gets voted a lifetime stipend of cat food and kitty litter from the Society For the Promotion Of Darwinism In Action.
