9780399163807: Cat Daddy: What the World's Most Incorrigible Cat Taught Me About Life, Love, and Coming Clean


Cat behaviorist and star of Animal Planet's hit television show My Cat from Hell, Jackson Galaxy, a.k.a. "Cat Daddy," isn't what you might expect for a cat expert (as The New York Times noted, with his goatee and tattoos, he "looks like a Hells Angel"). Yet Galaxy's ability to connect with even the most troubled felines -- not to mention the stressed-out humans living in their wake -- is awe-inspiring. In this book, Galaxy tells the poignant story of his thirteen-year relationship with a petite gray-and-white short-haired cat named Benny, and gives singular advice for living with, caring for, and loving the feline in your home.

When Benny arrived in his life, Galaxy was a down-and-out rock musician with not too much more going on than a part-time job at an animal shelter and a drug problem. Benny's previous owner brought the cat to the shelter in a cardboard box to give him up. Benny had seen better days --- his pelvis had just been shattered by the wheels of a car -- and his owner insisted he'd been "unbondable" from day one. Nothing could have been further from the truth. An inspiring account of two broken beings who fixed each other, Cat Daddy is laced throughout with Galaxy's amazing "Cat Mojo" advice for understanding what cats need most from us humans in order to live happier, healthier lives.

About the Author:

Jackson Galaxy has been called everything from a cat trainer to a cat shrink. Drawing on his years of experience in animal shelters and as a consultant working one-on-one with thousands of cats in their homes, his unique "Cat Mojo" approach offers people a deeper understanding of why their cats act out in the ways they do. Galaxy maintains a private consulting practice in Los Angeles.

Review:


"Galaxy's candor earns the reader's trust...he seamlessly weaves his relationship with Benny into the larger story of his life and recovery, which will appeal to a readership beyond cat lovers." --Publishers Weekly
"Mr. Galaxy--shaved head, arms full of tattoos--seems physically at odds with his gentle voice and gentle approach to animals.... But though he may be dealing with humans who have been terrorized and even bloodied by their out-of-control pets, he's a model of consistency. The cats, not the people, are his No. 1 priority." --The New York Times
"Galaxy is not your average animal behaviorist. He speaks Cat. And cats listen. He works miracles in saving death-row cats in shelters by helping them get over their fears and increase their self-esteem, and coaching them to 'work it' with potential adopters." --mousebreath.com
"There's an undeniable authenticity that comes through in "Cat Daddy;" its confessional nature and raw, often lyrical, prose are sure to resonate with a broad audience."--Modern Cat
"He's the kind of magic man who can lull a shelter's roomful of ferocious felines to sleep." --Yahoo!
"Each of us sheds light on our subject from our own particular point of view. Fortunately for us all Jackson Galaxy's light is very bright. His success at resolving behavioral difficulties in cats stems from his ability to slide his mind into the cat's point of view and proceed from there. His insights into both human and cat behavior are right on." --Anitra Frazier, author of "The Natural Cat"
"A joy.... Sometimes the biggest stories are actually the smallest ones--one man, one cat, and a quiet love that was large enough to save them both." --Gwen Cooper, "New York"" Times "bestselling author of "Homer's Odyssey "and "Love Saves the Day"
"This book is no ordinary cat memoir, nor is it an ordinary cat advice book. It is an inspirational tour de force that offers an intimate glimpse at Jackson, the man, and Jackson, the Cat Daddy." --Ingrid King, award-winning author of "Buckley's Story: Lessons from a Feline Master Teacher"
"The book will take you on a roller coaster of emotions -- anger, frustration, sadness, joy -- and will teach you a lot about cats along the way.... ["Cat Daddy"] contains stories of love, healing and the intense joy that comes with finding your higher purpose. It is a must-read for animal lovers, rescue workers, lost souls and anyone who has been touched by a cat in their life." --CatChannel.com
"With his goatee and tattoos, not to mention his custom-lined guitar-case-turned-pet-supply-kit, Galaxy might not seem like a typical 'cat person' -- but who better than a New Yorker inked with images of cats and his own set of whiskers to mediate between a fussy feline and its guardian?" --New York Post
"At first glance, Jackson Galaxy is the quintessential, bearded, tattooed L.A. hipster musician type with a laid back tone and a mellow voice; but scratch the surface and you'll find a 45-year-old, Jewish New Yorker who happens to love and understand cats like no other." --Layla Morgan Wilde, The Boomer Muse blog
