What Happened to Lux “the 911 Cat?” Jackson Galaxy Finds Out


You remember Lux, the very large cat who terrorized his human family back in March, forcing them to call 911 and sending the Internet careening.

Here’s what we wrote at the time:

It all started when Lux, who “has a history of violence” according to his owner, scratched the baby on the forehead. Palmer went to his son’s rescue, saw what they were up against, and then did something very dumb: He kicked the cat in the rear, and the cat went berserk.

In short order, the family found themselves in the back bedroom, hunkered down. The cat was screaming and screeching. Palmer’s girlfriend, their baby, the dog — all by his side. He called 911.

“He’s a very large Himalayan and he won’t let us out of our door,” he told the dispatcher. “He’s really bad right now. He’s charging us. He’s at our bedroom door.”

In the background, the cat wails.

“You hear him screaming? That was the cat.”

Fortunately, Palmer is an upstanding cat owner. He didn’t get rid of the cat, even though he had a seven-month-old baby at the time. He vowed to get the cat help. As he wrote on Facebook, “The cat is very loved, that is why he is here. We had the option to let animal control take him but decided to give him a chance.”

And he did just that. He gave him more than a chance, actually. He got Jackson Galaxy. The host of My Cat From Hell headed to Portland to help the Palmers, and the resulting show — which airs Saturday, June 14, 8 p.m. (ET/PT) — is being called “one of Galaxy’s most difficult and fascinating cases ever.”

Are you going to watch? Do you think Galaxy has what it takes to calm the 911 cat? Let us know in the comments!
