You never can tell. There have been a couple shows where he's taken stock of the situation and basically said "look, I'll only attempt to help you if you agree to rehome your cat if we are unsuccessful". His solution to the one problem he faced that seemingly had some similarities to yours was to basically suggest enforcing a "no kid zone" in one "catified" room in the house. But all problems are different, and the people in that episode lived in a big mansion. I'm missing my cats tremendously right now as I've been away from them for almost a week. I'm looking forward to tonight's show.

If I had the room in my house I would have gladly dedicated a room to Jasper, in reality I don't we are growing out of our space as it is. I miss him like crazy, but I find comfort in knowing he is in a good home. Someone that can provide for him better than I can. I'm sure your kitties miss you too, it's hard being away from them. I started watching it and had to leave, it seems like it will be interesting and a on a subject that is brought up often. Maybe Jackson will give his insight on PICA.

I love Jackson and the show. This week I watched an episode that featured 2 Savannah cats who lived with two other cats. There was some serious tension in that house. There was also a cat that had Pica. That was pretty interesting. Jackson rules!

Damnit. I was really looking forward to watching that on Saturday while I was travelling, and missing my cats. The hotel room tv had a channel for animal planet but when I tuned to it, it was GOLF! :rolleyes: And then Apple screwed up the episode in the itunes store so I couldn't watch it there either.... AAAARGH. Oh well, I have it recorded, I'm back home now and going to watch it tonight :biggrin:

Those Savannahs were intimidating! They were F2's but they had to be high percentage, they were HUGE! I feel for those cats being cramped up like that and they weren't even compatible breeds. Also having a bakery with 4 cats in your house :eek: my family doesn't mind eating BB fur lol but I doubt people would pay for it :biggrin: they were sitting on the counter watching her bake. They ended up with a really nice cat room, it actually made me jealous that my cats don't have one lol

Oh yeah! That cat room was awesome! I think some cat owners can be a little irresponsible and selfish sometimes. The woman with the bakery was clearly not thinking of the cat's well being by having those 4 cats together under one roof, IMO. I think the only thing cats value more than food and water is their own space, which they barely had in that home.

I finally got to watch it. Great episode! The pica case was really interesting, but the resolution of that one seemed a bit "weak". I'm not really convinced that they are out of the woods. And it was cool seeing the F2 savannah cats. :popcorm1: But yea, the cupcake lady was a complete lunatic. Two happy cuddly little oriental breed cats, then add 2 huge, vicious F2 Savannahs, throw them together, 2 litterboxes for 4 cats, one tiny tree for the orientals to fight over, and surprised that the oriental breeds are suffering. Their proposed solution? Rehome one of the orientals :rolleyes: And the stakes were very high because sometimes she burned her cupcakes.... :rofl: If there was ever a lady that you could look at and say "I'll bet you bake cupcakes for a living" it was her :lol:

One thing that was kind of funny is that I think this is the first show where Jackson didn't do his "let's see where the (Savannah) cat's challenge line is" :laugh2:

Yeah i was a little let down with the whole PICA situation to be honest, without a doubt Jackson knows what he is doing. However, I don't think that was through enough for me. I have never heard of pica being treated or managed without medication. It's usually something underlying mentally that triggers that behavior. I have a feeling that episode will let a lot of people down going through that situation.
As far as the Savannahs, I think Jackson learned his lesson with the one that was outside. She laid into him and you could tell by his face it was a little more than your normal cat smack. He didn't push the one on the fridge lol. Hey can you blame him? That looked like one gigantic pissed off feline! I honestly have no idea what that lady was thinking, two cats that were obviously a great combo, add in an eg savannah and then add in another :rolleyes: all of these shows leads me to believe that these animals are not good pets. Breeders swear they are excellent companions and they aren't like eg bengals. They are out going and loving, never shy. I think it takes a TRUE cat person with endless knowledge and resources to raise a Savannah right. Not your neighborhood cupcake lady!

If I'm not mistaken, I believe the couple did put the cat with Pica on medication. I don't think I could ever have a Savannah. Especially not an F2. I can barely handle my Bengal. :eek:

Hahaha, yea, I just thought it was funny. I was hoping he'd put his hand out there again, that would have been entertaining :cool:

Good episode yesterday. One household where two cats weren't getting along, and one of the cats was lashing out at the owners because she was arthritic and being held wrong. Another where a bengal was peeing everywhere. Both problems seemed to have pretty simple solutions, seemingly not much of a challenge for Jackson, but the catification done for the bengal was pretty awesome, and seeing the response from the arthritic cat was instructive.

It was a really good episode. I love how Jackson makes everything look so easy! Inappropriate peeing is a hard habit to break, I know first hand, but he had her with no accidents in a short period of time. Those window seats were awesome, and did you see her go after da bird! What is it with bengals and da bird, if you notice every time there has been a bengal on the show he breaks it out first thing. That poor little girl was panting fast. I hope their was a lot of editing done on that time frame. It takes BB about 30 mi uses non stop to get that exhausted. I also like the cat nip cozies!

Hi Debbie

If you have Sky its channel 523 and its on tonight at 7pm although I think we're a couple of episodes behind in the UK. There are also repeats that I'm recording on weekdays at (I think) 4am.

I'm always a week behind in catching the episodes. Although so much of it all seems staged and scripted, the approach Jackson takes to these problem cats is amazing. The PICA episode was quite interesting. Raiden doesn't EAT things, but he has this fettish to lick plastic bags. I keep them up and away from him but will allow him to lick one while I'm watching him. I can't imagine having a cat that actually EATS everything. I do believe the veterinarian told the couple there were medications that could help with the anxiety and I do believe they were going to try that. As we saw, it's very dangerous for the cat. The second episode with the two Savannahs was crazy! F2's? She's got her hand full, although they seemed quite domestic. The cat room was beautiful -- that is the way you do it. And she really didn't want 5 litter boxes in the house, but if you have four cats, you need five. And I think that a lot of the owners who post on here about the peeing and other aggressive behavior don't have enough litter boxes and don't think to separate the feeding areas as well as making sure each cat has their own territory to own.

Now I'll see if I have time to watch the episode from last night.
