    I have nine cats of my own, and I work at PetSmart part-time to help fund my “addiction”. Not only do I constantly have situations to resolve within my own kitty clan, I’m kind of looked to as the “go-to” person when a customer has a cat problem/question. Anything I learn I try to pass on to others so that more cats have the full loving lives they deserve.

    I really want to read this book, but since I don’t have a lot of time to actually sit and read it, this would be perfect for me to listen to on my long commute to work! What better way to make great use of that wasted time. Having him actually read it to me would be the ultimate!

    I like Jackson’s style, & would love to hear his book in his own voice.

    I would love to win a copy of the audiobook. To hear the passion and emotion in Jackson’s voice as he tells the story, would make the reading experience that much more impactful. Also, it would be a great way to share Jackson’s story with the kids in my classroom.

    I already purchased the book but would love to get a copy of the audiobook so I can listen to it in my truck as well because I’m sure this will be read & hopefully heard many times!

    I have three cats, and one of them is a ‘problem child’. I’ve seen a few episodes of My Cat From Hell, and loved seeing the way Jackson interacts with cats. I’d like to pick up a few pointers to use with my own furbabies, but, alas, I don’t get Animal Planet, so I can’t see his show! 🙁

    I would like to win this audiobook for a number of reasons, including my admiration of Jackson Galaxy’s wonderful voice. More importantly, I retain information much better when I can hear AND read it, instead of just one alone, and I will be purchasing the book itself soon. I also have a 5-CD stereo, and enjoy having noise when I sleep. More pertaining to the book itself, I am a huge fan of the Cat Daddy’s work, as well as his deeper thoughts on such things as how we should treat cats, and would adore hearing the story of Benny told from Jackson’s mouth, not just reading the words. In addition, I’m confident that his book will contain information that I can use to help cats, as I plan to not only foster cats in the future but create furniture and environments which cats and their guardians can enjoy together, and improve the lives of my own two cats. Jackson Galaxy is a truly amazing human, and I would love to be able to channel some of his wisdom as I move into aiding cats.

    I’m a cat mommy, and I love my boys. They are the most gentle loving creatures, and they are my lifesavers. They entertain me, love me, cuddle me, sit on my shoulders, lap, head, wherever! I love audiobooks, I would love to listen to this one.

    I would love to have Jackson’s audio book!! He is awesome and it just wouldn’t be right without his voice reading it.

    I definitely need this book because I intend to be a cat in my next life.

    The book arrived 10 minutes ago. Looking forward to a good read. Would love the audio book for my commute. I’ll probably download it from iTunes even if I don’t win!

    I would love to win this audiobook! My husband and I discovered “My Cat From Hell” during the first season and have become devotees of Jackson Galaxy. His SpiritEssences enabled us to have a relatively quiet and stress free move from Georgia to Arizona with our 2 cats – Smudge and Anise and our dog Marley last year. His story is inspiring and hearing it being read directly by him would be amazing!!

    I would love to win this audiobook! I’m going on an eight-hour road trip from Seattle to Portland and back to go to Jackson’s book signing, and would love to listen to this on the drive.

    Once I’m done listening, I’ll donate to the shelter I volunteer for, so they can use it to educate staff and volunteers.

    Thanks for doing this!

    I would like to win this so I could listen to it anywhere without having to bring my hard copy around.
    Also, I just like hearing him talk and the story is bound to be amazing in his voice!
    And we have a few cats with various different issues, so the tips I think will be very helpful 🙂

    I love Jackson’s work and would LOVE to be able to listen to his book! I work in the Humane Education department of an animal shelter and I get asked SO many questions about animal behaviour. Jackson’s show has already helped me SO MUCH in explaining things to potential adopters and pet owners.

    The other (and far more important) reason I would really like to win this audiobook is for my husband’s grandmother. She loves cats more than anything …her entire apartment is nothing but cats and Tinkerbell (her nickname) as far as the eye can see… but recently she woke up blind one morning (she could see fine when she went to bed, woke up totally blind) due to a retinal hemmorage so she can no longer enjoy reading or many of the activities she used to love. I think she would really enjoy this book and audio books are now her only option.

    Ultimately I will buy a hard copy of Jackson’s book because it will be an amazing reference for me (and I have looked forward to it’s release for months) and while I would throughly enjoy hearing Jackson narrate the story himself (that man can seriously SPEAK!!!) I really want to win the audiobook so I can pass it along to a 91 year old cat lover who, when she owned a cat, cooked 1/2 a piece of bacon for her cat every morning because the cat loved bacon… even though she hated bacon (and the smell of bacon) herself.

    Because Jackson is my Yoda. Not only have I used many of the tools I’ve learned on MCFH on my own cats, I’ve also used them on cats at the vet’s office where I work. Jackson is the man!

    Oh!! I would LOVE to win this. I’ve been dying for it to come out but haven’t had the funds to pre order it. It seems like a touching story, I’d like to know the whole of it!

  20. Cheri
    May 10, 2012 at 2:33 pm (8 years ago)

    I was planning on downloading the book for my iPad anyway, but to hear Jackson read his work would be truly awesome!! I am rescue mom to 10 purr-fect kitties and am always looking for ways to improve their lives (LOVE MCFH!!)-would love to hear Jackson tell his story!

    Audio book …. I would love to win it. I have pre-ordered a hard copy of the book … but alas it is destined to be given as a gift to a dear friend.

    May 10, 2012 at 2:32 pm (8 years ago)

    I would absolutely love to have a copy of the audio book. I’ve been heavily into animal rescue and welfare for the past 15 years. I was soo excited to see the show,”My cat from hell” come on TV because there have been many shows aired for dogs – but nothing for cats – until this. I have difficulty reading due to an eye condition – so having an audio book would be much easier on my eyes.

    If I’m the winner, I will put the info found in this book to good use in my own home (I have three cats) and in my animal welfare endeavors.

    I would like to win the Cat Daddy audiobook as a present for my wife for Mother’s Day. She works so hard for us as a public servant who ensures disabled people receive an income. She also works very hard as a mother, and a wife, and lover of all animals, especially cats. I would like to reward her with something special. Because I am still unemployed, we are barely scraping by and this would be such a wonderful surprise for a very deserving woman who is such a big fan of Jackson Galaxy.

    I pre-ordered my hardback copy of Cat Daddy from Amazon and it’s arriving today – SO EXCITED! I would love the audio book copy because it would be great to hear Jackson tell the story in his own words. I love his soothing voice – I’d play it for my cats for their bedtime story! 😀

    I wish to win this book because I am very interested in my three cat whole wellbeing. I want to learn the best possible way to communicate and share loving happy space with my feline companions.

    I would love to win this audio book. There is nothing equal to hearing an author read his/her own work, and I have been looking forward to Jackson’s book since I first learned he was writing it. Not only would I enjoy it, but I have a certain young cat owner in mind who needs the info in Jackson’s book, but who simply doesn’t read. This could be the perfect way to impart some sorely needed cat mojo to her!

  27. Todd
    May 10, 2012 at 2:23 pm (8 years ago)

    I would like to win the Cat Daddy audio book because I have 6 cats here that are huge fans of yours. They are meowing away about how they want to hear you tell them a story.

    I would be so grateful to receive an audiobook of this book because I am dyslexic and reading is challenge for me. We have several rescue cats and Jackson has helped us understand and think about our cats in new and insightful ways. I would love to know more about his story! Thank you!

    audio book??? now you are speaking my language!! I have such a hard time actually reading books these days (brain fog) that I’m all up in the audio book world.. great things to listen to on the way to the vet as long as you can hear it over the singing.. (what, your cats don’t sing to you on the way to the vet??)

    and getting to listen to Jackson himself talk to me.. oh yeah.. everyone else please go home, I want this.. 🙂

    I would love to win this audiobook. I would listen to it in the comfort of my home surrounded by my four legged friends. My own Benny has taught me so much about life and unconditional love, it would be such a special treat to hear Jackson tell his story about his life with his Benny. This is just an awesome giveaway for whoever wins! Good luck all!

    I <3 this man! I would love to win a copy of his audio book! Regardless, I will be buying a copy of Cat Daddy!

    I would love to win this! I do not have cable tv, so I haven’t been able to watch any of the episodes. I am also in college so I don’t have spare money to buy it or time to read it, but I do have time to listen while I am doing things like making dinner for my family or cleaning the house. I would just really love a chance to hear about him and his work with cats and how it has impacted his life. I love my cat so much so anything I can do to learn more about her and become closer to her would be wonderful.

    I would love to win this audio book. I am a bit challenged visually so being able to just close my eyes and listen would be great. Hearing Jackson’s voice: the tonality and inflections, now that would be a treat! I’m off to post this to my facebook fan: page! 🙂 Good Luck Jackson! You deserve to have a mega best seller! We love yah, Cat Daddy!

    With men being from Mars and women from Venus, I must wonder if being a Cat Daddy widely differs from being a Cat Mommy. THIS Cat Mommy wants to know!

  37. Estelle Goldberg
    May 10, 2012 at 8:42 am (8 years ago)

    What Cat Daddy does to help irrascible cats and frustrated owners, oops, ownees, shows his intense love and respect for, cats. Jackson’s knowledge of how cats “tick” (no pun intended) has led him to save many cat lives and have made the people who live with them more aware of what makes a cat or two or three or… happy.
    By watching his TV show, Cats from Hell, I have helped our own cat from hell, Sophie Renay, relax more and be less anxious. This is not easy as we live with 16 cats, 13 rescued.
    I would love to listen to Jackson’s audiobook and perhaps my cats would , too.

    Can’t think of a better audiobook to listen during my commute to the clinic, lol…

    I love the affect Jackson’s work is having on the cat world! He has amazing experiences and insight to share with us all; even those of us who thought we knew everything there was to know about out 4-legged friends. Can’t wait to read the book! And would love to win a copy 🙂

    I pre-ordered this book back in November and can’t believe the release day is FINALLY here! I would LOVE to win the audiobook – it would be like having a purr-sonal conversation (albeit one sided) with Jackson! I love that he voiced his own audiobook. It makes it the one audiobook I would want to listen to. What a great way to stave off the boredom of my commute to work – listening to Cat Daddy himself tell his and Benny’s story!

    I would love to win the Cat Daddy audiobook. I have a long commute, and I would love to be able to listen to it while I drive to work! It will remind me of my kitties patiently waiting at home for my return (and their dinner!).

    May 10, 2012 at 7:22 am (8 years ago)

    Me…me….me! This would be just awesome…to have the book is awesome in itself but to have Jackson read it to me…now that would just be MOST awesome!!

    Seriously Ingrid, there are no words for what this man has done and is doing to help stop the euthanization of cats. He is my Cat Daddy Hero!!

    would love to hear Jackson read the book!
