I don’t keep track of the number of books I read each year, but my best guess is somewhere between 150 and 200, and at least half of them have something to do with cats. I review books here on The Conscious Cat almost every week. Last week, I featured my Top 10 Cat Books of 2017, and today, I’m announcing my pick for Best Cat Book of 2017.

Total Cat Mojo: The Ultimate Guide to Life With Your Cat


With the help of his co-author, Mikel Delgado, who is also our resident cat behaviorist here on The Conscious Cat, Jackson Galaxy offers one of the most comprehensive guides I’ve ever seen to helping cats and their humans live a truly happy life.

There are a lot of good cat care books out there, but Total Cat Mojo is in a class of its own, because it’s so much more than just a cat care guide. This is a book about the relationship between cats and humans, something Jackson stresses over and over. “Relationships are complicated,” writes Jackson. “Even in giving them meaning beneath their labels – best friend, guardian, parent – the label you choose matters less than the effort, sacrifice, and vulnerability shown to put your money where your relational mouth is.” Truly understanding cats and providing an environment where they can find their mojo may mean compromise on the human’s part and requires a commitment to a what is a lifelong relationship no different from any other family member.

Even if your cats are purrfect little angels, this book will make you view your relationship with them in a new light. And if your cats aren’t always behaving the way you’d like them to, or if you have one of those cats from hell that you see on the show, this book will not just arm you with the knowledge you need to make things better for both cat and human, it will also provide you with the compassion and commitment you need to mend not just the cat’s behavior, but also your broken relationship.

5 Comments on 2017 Cat Book of the Year

  1. I’ve read various cat books…..but this one is the ultimate in cat information….unusual tips that I would not have thought of….like not getting fanatic about cleaning the litter box…..yes, you do need to scoop every day, but you don’.t have to disinfect it religiously…cats like their own smell.

    So thank you for sharing this book.

  2. Oh this is a great idea!!
    Mum reads dog books all the time – I will have to get her to review some…
