Cats aren't really from hell, and he'll show you why.

The Animal Planet channel has hit a grand-slam home run with a series that has the unlikely title "My Cat From Hell", featuring an unlikely-looking guy with the unlikely name of Jackson Galaxy.

Jackson is called upon by various people who have serious problems with their cats. And this guy is really good at understanding cats and teaching people how to understand their cats. He stresses paying attention to cats' body language, and even teaches the slow blink, so essential to gaining a cat's trust and so very seldom mentioned by people talking about cats.

I've embedded a couple of short instructional videos by Jackson below. You can see his case studies on the Animal Planet channel now; they're currently running new episodes as well as repeating past episodes. You can also see some case study videos on their web site,
