Jackson, Brooklyn, Travolta discussed on Animal Radio
Joining us. How are you doing Jackson? I'm glorious. How are you doing? Split, you have a book out. Total cat mojo is when it's called, right? It's more than like. Yes, it is total cap mojo. And really, really stoked about it. I really am. It is everything I think I know. One place, you know? So it's really it's been a long time coming. And I'm really, I'm actually really proud of it. So I'm excited. I'm excited for people to get a hold of it, you know? Well, you're going to have to explain something to me inside the book. You have an ideas for creating your own mojo map. What is cat mojo? It's funny because we have a whole chapter also there called KS moho and that was when I was lecturing in where was I? In Argentina. And I'm going on about cat mojo and everything and I'm running around the stage and sweating and suddenly there was like crickets in the audience and I realized that nobody had any idea what I was and so the translator says, can I smoke? Yeah, I got a clue that mojo and it derives from this old I guess slang and it was in a lot of songs in the 40s and blue songs. When you talk about getting your mojo working, you got your mojo on. Mojo is a sense of like inner confidence inner that strut that you have that and it's not you're not trying to prove anything to anybody. It's all coming from this interior place of knowing who you are and where you are and where you belong. It's the utmost confidence. And I always in the book I detail when mojo came to me, it was the concept of John's Travolta at the beginning of Saturday night fever just running down the street in Brooklyn and you see that look as the camera pans up and there he is holding a slice of pizza looking at the girls down the street. That's mojo because, you know. So it's owned Brooklyn. It's comfortable in your own skin or in this case it's comfortable in your own fur. In your own fur. Yes. And that is all connected to what I call the raw cat that we have our cats have this very direct line from the cat sitting on your lap to the cat in the fertile Crescent tens of thousands of years ago. They are very much the same animal. We haven't messed with them very much, you know? So their desire, their primary objective, when they wake up every day, is to do exactly what that cat did. So as we adjust, as we transition from a working cat lifestyle, which we still are doing more of an urban pet lifestyle, we still have to provide the raw cat what they need. And of course, do it in a socially acceptable way. So that's really the centerpiece of the whole book. Do you have a cat? Can you just ask me if I have cats? Yes. Did you really ask that help? I want to know if I want to know about your cats because you know what? Everybody's going to interview the guy they're going to say, okay, tell us about what's in your book, the leader box, and the later training and all of that. I want to know about Jackson galaxy and the animals that are living at your if they have mojo. You know what, some have varying degrees. I have a lot of not a lot. Yes, I do. I have a lot of cats. But and several of them are either Ferrell or sort of quasi or so in terms of their mojo, when they're outside, we have our big catio here and when they're outside of the cadio, they have Uber mojo. In the house, around feet and arms and legs and whatever, less so, but we're working on that. And but yeah, everyone has varying degrees of mojo, but that's the concept. Do you know that's the thing that in my house as well as everybody else's, we have to define what I call the mojito cat that absolutes center, you know, by who they are in the first place and not who we want them to be, you know? I mean not every cat is going to greet you at the door and offer you a mojito and lead you into the house and give you a tour. Some of them may sit like a few of mine. They'll sit on the mantle watch you walk in, give you a little bit of a blank and let you walk by without any without any sense of fight or flight or anything like that. And to me, that's mojo as well. So you don't have to but yeah, we have at the moment, we have 5 sort of base cats, right? Those are the cats who lived here for a long time. We have other cats that are in varying stages of rehab. So I would say right now we have 9 cats, three dogs, and a turtle. And a turtle. What kind of tortoise? Our turtle is a little Chinese box turtle named Sammy. We inherited him when my mom passed and he was 20 something years old and live in the high life. Yeah, he's living a good life here. If you have a multiple cat household, you often have problems. What kind of problems do you deal with at the galaxy household? I think that it's the same problems that we all deal with living with anybody, especially when there's a lot of people in a house is that, you know, we have arguments. We get sick of each other's faces. Just have moments. And I think that's really all that happens here is that there's too many beings. This weekend, you know, a lot two out of the three of our dogs go to day care on a regular basis because we're both crazy busy and they're really energetic dogs. And on the weekends, of course, everybody's here. And when you've got three dogs noncash for the total and two humans sharing the not so big place, that happens. But it resolves very quickly. I mean, the good thing is there's no dispute over territory because of the cadio and we've catified our space and all the basic stuff. We are with Jackson galaxy when we come back. I'll have more stupid questions. You're listening to animal radio. If you missed any part of today's show, visit us at animal radio dot com or download the animal radio app for iPhone and Android.

And a multiple cat household. No peeing problems. Any inappropriate information? No? No. My dog. Your dog? We have a dog who really he started from square one, man. We rescued him, having never set foot in a house before, and he was like a year and a half old. So and he's a boy. And he wasn't murdered. And all that. So it's been a slow frustrating process with him, but I wouldn't trade it for the world. But yeah, he's our only key problem in the house at the moment. Who do you turn to for dog help? At the moment, I have a new show coming out on November 11th. We have a brand new TV show called tap versus dog. And dog. Cat versus dog. Planet. And it's this same basic premise of my show going to people's houses fixing problems, but this time it's cat problems and dog problems in the same house. And so I have a dog trainer, buddy with me. Names always sandor and Zoe. I have corralled Zoe to help me with my my little problems in my house, you know, but that's what you get for costarring with me. You get wrangled..
