Jackson Galaxy, renowned cat behavior expert, and star of Animal Planet’s “My Cat from Hell,” will host Cat Camp NYC this coming Saturday and Sunday, June 1st and 2nd at the Metropolitan Pavilion in NYC’s Chelsea neighborhood. Hosting as “Head Counselor,” alongside Christina Ha, co-founder of Cat Camp and co-owner of NYC‘s first cat café, Meow Parlour, Cat Camp will be a weekend full of fun and educational activities for those of all ages.
