Jackson Galaxy® Collection by Petmate® - Review and Giveaway

Jackson Galaxy is our hero!  Every Saturday night, all of us sit in front of the television and watch him work with cats and their humans who are having some problems.  The majority of the problems tend to stem from litter box issues and aggression.  We've learned a lot about our daily lives by watching Jackson work with cats who are having problems. We've discovered that many times, the litter box isn't located in the right location or isn't large enough with tall sides.  Many times, the aggressive cats need outlets for their energy and interactive toys help.  Each product speaks to natural cat behaviors – Hunt, Catch, Kill, Eat, Groom and Sleep

Brulee with some Jackson Galaxy® cat items from Petmate®


Mom Paula was lucky to meet Jackson Galaxy in person at the Petmate® booth at Global Pet Expo this past Spring. There were many new cat items from the Jackson Galaxy™ Collection available for view (some haven't been released to the public yet).  When Petmate contacted us about reviewing some products from the Jackson Galaxy Collection as part of National Adopt a Cat Month, we responded that we'd be honored because we wanted to experience products from the mind of Jackson Galaxy.

Truffle smells the treats in the Asteroid Puzzle Treat

The first item is the Asteroid Puzzle Treat.  This toy is designed for solo play and will keep your cat engaged during playtime with an ever-changing treat toy.  All you need to do is to insert your cat's favorite treat into the toy and toss it on the floor for us to discover how to remove the treats.  At first, Brulee and Truffle sniffed the Asteroid Puzzle Treat and didn't do anything with it.  I left the toy on the floor and when I came back into the room, Brulee had discovered how to move the toy around and the was enjoying the treats.  It's recommended as cats learn how to remove the treats, you can push in the nubs on the toy to increase the difficulty for your cats to get the treats to come out.  There is a translucent outer shell that allows your cats to see the treats and the aroma from the treats escapes through the small holes at the end of the nubs.  I used soft treats the first time, but will attempt the more solid treats so Truffle and Brulee will hear them rolling around when the play.  The Jackson Galaxy® Asteroid Puzzle Treat Toy engages "raw cat" instinct to build confidence. 


Truffle inside the giant litter pan

The second item we received from the Jackson Galaxy™ Collection from Petmate® was the Giant Litter Pan.  We tend to use closed litter boxes, but we have one enclosed litter box that requires a large litter pan inside.  This litter pan holds up to 30 pounds of litter.  There is a low profile front entry for easy access and there are high sides to help prevent litter scatter if your cat likes to scratch like we do. The large size gives us plenty of room to dig.  We like that they color is a dark or light gray and it blends in with our decor better.  Truffle is only 7.5 pounds and you can see in the photo above that she was able to climb inside and there is plenty of room for her.  We added the pan inside our little box and it is working great!  There is much less litter outside the box now.


Truffle getting ready to jump into the Jackson Galaxy® Space Station

The newest and most exciting item we received was the Jackson Galaxy® Space Station.  As soon as Mom Paula put it on the floor and released the tape from the ball, we began playing with it.  The Space Station has multiple openings so your cat can hunt the ball from inside or outside the elevated bowl.  The Space Station is a deep, high-walled bowl that features a replaceable scratch pad on the bottom.  It's deep enough that we can stalk, pounce, and play inside.  What's even better is that both of us can play at the same time - one inside and one outside.  The video below shows how much we enjoyed the Space Station.





We were very impressed with the products we received from the Jackson Galaxy® Collection from Petmate®.  We want to also encourage everyone to consider adopting that special kitty (or two) and providing a wonderful, safe, and enjoyable forever home.

Giant litter box for the ginger cat family feral mama kickin habit

Crystal Van Daalen said...

My favorite is the feather toys !!!!

Linda Szymoniak said...

While my cats would probably pick the Space Station as their favorite new product, I'd have to to with the Giant Litter Pan. We lost our old Maine Coon boy last year, but he always had trouble fitting into our litter boxes comfortably. I use covered litter boxes to help keep the litter scatter down (and odor in), but I know my cats prefer an open pan. This one is SO deep. I don't think even our Arata could kick much litter out of it!

Rebecca lee Dutill said...

WHAT WONDERFUL PRODUCTS!!! THANKS FOR THE GIVEAWAY!!love the blog!

Kerry Barbero said...

Oh boy, that Space Station sure looks fun! Can I come play with you two? I am small, too, so I bet we could all fit in it at the same time! Or one could power up the ship and two could be the meteors that the ship has to fly by in space! Tee hee hee! -Valentine (& Mom)

Brian said...

That Jackson dude sure comes up with some goodies!

Caitlyn Orr said...

My boy love his Jackson Galaxy feather wand! It's his favorite toy. We have to hide it when it's not being used or he will sneak away with it and destroy the feathers!

Cat Street Boyz said...

Our Mom watches Jackson on youtube and used his advice about keeping pets away from places they want for humans. Mommy put several long strips of carpet tape on a long shelving runners and put that on the love seats in our family room. Guess she wasn't crazy with our fun shway of pillows scattered all over the floor that greeted her every morning=^Y^=

Blaze said...

My cat enjoys running in circles around the space station.

Deb Anderson said...

I love the giant litter pan! I have two cats and room for only one litter box, so I have to have a large one. This one would be great, especially with the higher sides to keep litter inside.

lisalela said...

Omgoodness...my Cola and Bagheera would be so fascinated with the Space Station. I'd love to be able to provide such stimulating play for them. This whole prize package is awesome!

Jill Nelson said...

The Whiskeratti said...

We like the big litter box but wonder if Toby could comfortably enter it, with his arthritis.

benz1171 said...

I like the Jackson Galaxy® Space Station.

Beth Miller said...

Looks terrific. We have a constant "beach" of litter outside of our calico's potty box. We'll have to check this one out. **purrrrr**

AmyShojai said...

That space station looks like a blast! The video made me laugh. I'm already using a large sterilite storage box for Karma's potty, and so glad that now there are commercial products that are a larger size. Jackson knows how to create happy cats!

Kristen @ My 3 Little Kittens said...

Your cats get more adorable each time I see their photos! I love the chewing on the toy photo!!!!

Karen H. said...

Love all of these! It's obvious Jackson has worked with cats long enough to know what they really like and need. I hadn't seen these before reading this post, thank you for sharing them!

Cathy Armato said...

Just when I thought Jackson's cat toys couldn't get more innovative! That Space Station is unbelievable, I love your video. I was laughing at Truffle (I think it was Truffle, I still can't always tell them apart!) sitting in the litter box watching Brulee playing with it - that just looked so darn cute & funny. Truffle finally jumped out to join in the fun! What a great giveaway. Sharing.
Love & Biscuits,
