Book Review: Cat Daddy by Jackson Galaxy


While there may be many books about cats out there, few are written by men, especially a tall, balding, earring wearing man with a goatee, and arms covered in thick sleeves of tattoos. Coming tomorrow to cat lovers everywhere is Jackson Galaxy’s new book, Cat Daddy: What the World’s Most Incorrigible Cat Taught Me About Life, Love, and Coming Clean. I was super excited to get a chance to review Galaxy’s book before it came out for the public.
               
Available on Amazon.com!

What can you expect to find in Galaxy’s book? How Jackson started working with Spirit Essences, that before he was bald he had dreadlocks (and read what he did with them when he cut them off), his food addiction, the Cat I Love You method and most important, the impact of his cat Benny, on his life.
               
When Iinterviewed Jackson Galaxy in January, Jackson told me: “Basically the cat in the book, Benny was dying and our time together was ending. I was just struck by how his presence in my life guided my knowledge about cats and the work I do with them and the techniques I have worked on and the theories that I have used.”

“And in our time together [Benny] was there to witness and help turn me around. I just told him at that point that I just wanted to honor him and would write about him. It’s our story about our life together and how the techniques became shaped by my life with him. It’s a memoir but there are a bunch of tips and how to’s with things inspired by him,” he said.

If you’re looking for a typical cat book, this ain’t your cup of tea. If you’re looking for the story of how cats can change people and shape our lives – then this book is for you.

Cat Daddy is available on Amazon.com here.
               
I started reading Cat Daddy the day it came in the mail...Henry enjoyed reading it too!

This book was sent to me by the publisher. Receiving the complimentary copy did not influence my review.
