It is no secret that cats are a nefarious species of mammal. Dirtier than the pig and more vicious than the wolverine, felis silvestris catus must be applauded for using its estimable wiles to colonize the homes of its comparatively guileless cohabitant, homo sapiens.

The debate over whether love of cats is a matter of taste or a clinical psychological infirmity is still open, but in the meantime it is safe to say that human beings could use some help in relating to this aloof and emotionally draining animal.

On this front, San Franciscans are in luck: Jackson Galaxy, the renowned cat behaviorist who stars in Discovery Channel's My Cat from Hell, is coming to town.

On Saturday, Feb. 11, Galaxy will deliver a "Cat Mojo Workshop" at San Francisco's SPCA. What can cat owners expect to learn?

According to a press release, "Armed with 15 years of experience, a proven training program and his signature guitar case filled with cat toys, Galaxy is on a mission to help cat owners find the source of conflict with their furry friends."

Go if you must. But remember, cat loyalists: This Valentine's Day might be a good time to assess whether your affections are misplaced.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
