-- Cat Behaviorist Jackson Galaxy Takes On Problem Cats in New York and LA --

(Silver Spring, Maryland) - This summer, Animal Planet's Saturday nights are overrun with feisty felines and conniving canines with the return of hit series MY CAT FROM HELL and BAD DOG! Beginning Saturday, June 30, cat behaviorist Jackson Galaxy takes on unruly cats and assists their frustrated owners in ten all-new episodes of MY CAT FROM HELL at 8 PM (ET/PT). Then, at 9 PM (ET/PT), the first of six all-new episodes of BAD DOG! premieres with misbehaving mutts and devious pets caught in the act.

When combative cats cause couples to contemplate a split, and feuding felines force friends to fight for the first time, cat listener Jackson Galaxy steps in to locate the source of conflict between owners and their furry friends in MY CAT FROM HELL. Now, for the first time, Galaxy is taking his skills and signature guitar case filled with cat toys on the road to New York City to tackle a few extreme cases of cats behaving badly.

Often times for Galaxy, the zany personalities and stressful actions of humans are to blame for creating these feline dramas and putting people and cats at risk. From a territorial cat that can't get along with the family dogs and "bitch-slaps" its owner, to a confused cat that uses the closet as a litter box , it's up to Galaxy to execute his proven training program and solve the gamut of feline- and human-related issues before relationships fall apart and cats are shown the door.

"Each cat has a distinct personality and temperament and the actions of humans can easily lead to a claw in the face," says Galaxy. "Dealing with these out-of-control cats can be easier than dealing with out-of-touch owners, and fixing people first can often be the cure all for feline vexations."

Then, on BAD DOG!, pet owners annoyed at their misbehaving pets skip the expert and take matters into their own hands by catching their critters on tape committing unthinkable acts. Whether it's a piglet putting the moves on its owner's wife, pet goats destroying the family car or a jeweler's dog with a taste for the merchandise, these pets are seeing how far they can push their owners and still receive unconditional love.

To compliment this duo of popular pet programs, the savvy curators at AnimalPlanet.com are scouring the web and social media to feature the cutest of cute pets, and are inviting users to upload or recommend their own cuddly critters for consideration. The site includes seasonal features and special events, and is brought to users via a daily newsletter, posts on the Animal Planet Facebook channel and through the team of social media seeders.
