Lux Attack Cat
Cat advocate Jackson Galaxy has announced he will visit Lux, the cat who prompted a 911 call after his family felt threatened by the cat.

Hear how "Attack Cat" Lux was sent to a shelter >>

Galaxy, host of "My Cat From Hell" on Animal Planet and author of "Cat Daddy," will head to Portland, Ore., to meet Lux's former pet parents Lee Palmer and Palmer's girlfriend Teresa Barker and to see the cat. In his work, Galaxy aims to understand the motivation for cat behavior and educate pet parents on how to bring out the best in their cats.

Palmer called 911 earlier this month to say that his cat had gone "over the edge." This occurred after Palmer kicked the cat, who had scratched Palmer and Barker's 7-month-old son after he pulled the cat's tail. The couple originally said they would keep the cat, but on Monday they called a local shelter to take Lux into their facility.

Enjoyed the article, but wish the cat had adjusted. Since he has health issues and is irritable, he should be in a home without children. He is defensive, apparently, not vicious, and should not be put down.

Wishing Lux a loving forever home real soon.

I am so glad that Jackson is going to try to help Lux, who deserves to go to a better home. I truly believe that any man who will kick a pet like that cannot be trusted not to mistreat his partner and/or child, too. Here's hoping he gets some help soon as well.
