If you watch My Cat From Hell, currently in its fourth season on Animal Planet, you’ve seen Jackson Galaxy demonstrate his almost uncanny ability to connect with troubled cats and their often equally, if not more, troubled humans, again and again. I love watching the transformation his work brings not just to the cats, but also to the humans. And isn’t it almost always the humans who need to change? The cats are just being cats.

Cat Daddy is the story of Jackson’s personal journey from his days as a musician struggling with addiction and working part time at an animal shelter to his present status as the go-to feline behaviorist. Not surprisingly, a cat featured prominently in his story. The cat was Benny, who, says Jackson, was “the most difficult cat I ever worked with. I felt like I was constantly in a lab with him, trying to solve problems.” Jackson credits Benny with helping him come up with the methods that he still uses to help countless cats. But Benny also had a profound impact on Jackson’s personal life. I for one can’t wait to read this book. Read my full review of Cat Daddy.
