This month marked the 2-year anniversary of my experience with Lux, the cat whose family called 911 when he had an aggressive and threatening outburst after the baby pulled his tail. It was May 2, 2014 that I experienced one of Lux’s outbursts firsthand, and yes, it was as scary as the family had described.
Thanks to Jackson Galaxy and Animal Planet, Lux was given a chance, more than most aggressive cats get. There isn’t a long life expectancy in most shelters for cats who are violent. Jackson wanted to turn the tables and show that even a cat with a history of aggression can give and receive love. It didn’t turn out as we’d hoped, for Lux to remain with me, but he is now well established in a fine place where he has all that love and care he deserves. In between naps, walks, and treats, behaviorists are working with him, finding what makes him act out and trying to change it.
Thanks again to Jackson Galaxy for his belief in Lux and his active love of all felines, no matter what. Here are some of my favorite photos of sweet Luxie.
