Host of 'My Cat From Hell' coming to Rialto Square Theatre

JOLIET – Jackson Galaxy, the cat behavior consultant who hosts the TV show “My Cat From Hell,” will be at the Rialto Square Theatre on April 14.

Galaxy’s appearance will be at 8 p.m., the Rialto Square Theatre announced Monday.

Tickets go on sale Friday.

“My Cat From Hell,” which airs on Animal Planet, features Galaxy helping people who own cats with behavior issues.

Galaxy will be doing much of the same during his appearance at the Rialto although without cats present.

“We will not allow cats,” Rialto Executive Director Valerie Devine said.

Galaxy won’t be bringing cats either, she said. There is some consideration being given to having a question-and-answer portion of the show, although that has not been set, Devine said.

“The main part of the show is helping the cat owners better their relationships with their own cats,” Devine said.

Galaxy also has a new series, “Cat vs. Dog,” which premiered on Animal Planet in November. It includes dog trainer Zoe Sandor as they both assess conflicts between cats and dogs.

Galaxy’s new book, “Total Cat Mojo,” was released in October.

“Popularly known as the ‘Cat Daddy,’ Jackson is on a mission to educate people about cats and deepen the human and cat bond, while reducing the number of animals that end up in shelters,” the Rialto said in a news release announcing the April 14 show.

Galaxy also has written two New York Times best-sellers, “Catify to Satisfy” and “Catification.”

Tickets for Galaxy’s appearance at the Rialto are $43.50, $53.50 and $63.50. They will be available online at, by phone at 800-745-3000, and at the Rialto box office at 102 N. Chicago St.
