I guess you're right. I just assume people would be proactive and learn about getting a cat before adopting one from a shelter or buying one from a breeder. If I had a serious problem with Hunter, I'd do research myself and see what I could do, join groups, forums, and ask my vet. It seems as though these people almost could care less, wonder why their cat is acting out, and instead of being the proactive parent, they need the help of a 'professional' which I don't even think is the right word for him.
I'm not saying its a bad show, as I did learn a few things. I sort of feel as though the show was thrown together. Yes, the families have serious problems with their cats, that I won't argue with. My main issue I guess, is that he just tells the parents/families what to do, what to buy etc and it seems to "magically" solve their problem. He gets paid for that?!?! Seriously, if that is the case, I could do that, and be called a 'cat behaviorist'.
I know there are millions of families out there who aren't in tune to their cats as we are on catster, and that is okay. For them, the show is probably great. Its just not for me. However, the show "its me or the dog" is a show I enjoy. I'm not as focused on my dog, and the show actually teaches me a thing or two.
I'm not saying I know everything there is to know about cats and their behavior, I just think that if someone has a problem, be proactive, do the research and learn before you go and have some stranger saying " do this, and buy that". But then again, maybe most people want the easy way out of their problems.
Everyone has their own opinion, and I'm just saying, the show isn't one of my favorites.
