Book Review: Cat Daddy by Jackson Galaxy





Mom and I read a really great book by cat behaviorist and Animal Planet star, Jackson Galaxy. His book, "Cat Daddy: What the World's Most Incorrigible Cat Taught Me About Life, Love, and Coming Clean" is pawsome! It's like Mr. Galaxy actually speaks cat.


The book tells the story of his kitty, Benny, and how he devoted himself to helping to solve Benny's issues along with his own. (He also helped numerous cats in the shelter where he worked.) Mr. Galaxy and Benny were the perfect pair. Both had problems, but they didn't give up on each other. Now, Mr. Galaxy is keeping his promise to Benny to tell his story.


Benny was an unwanted cat. His previous owner actually said that she didn't like him! Had she tried to understand him, she probably would have loved him. Instead, Benny ended up in the home of Mr. Galaxy where he was given the care that he needed to heal both physically and emotionally. Be warned, a story this great comes with sad moments. Mom had some serious leaky eyes at the end.


It is wonderful to know that not only does Mr. Galaxy understand us felines so well, he is sharing that knowledge with millions of people. In fact, "Cat Daddy" is full of tips on making your cat's life better. You should send your human to pick up a copy. The book was released today, so make them stop at their favorite bookstore to buy one-you won't be disappointed!


By the way, Mom also go to interview Mr. Galaxy. She was very excited and nervous at the same time. Silly Mama. If you want to read her review and interview with him, check it out on her bloggie.

  1. I am SO enjoying everyone's reviews of Cat Daddy! It is an awesome book. I did not allow my human to interview Jackson (even though she knows him) - I thought it was a job for an EXPERT, so I did the interview myself! It will run next week.
