Jackson Galaxy_LRAnimal lovers, particularly those of the feline persuasion, should not miss a special opportunity to meet celebrity cat behaviourist Jackson Galaxy when he visits Books & Books, Camana Bay on Thursday, May 16, at 7pm to share his inspiring memoir, Cat Daddy: What the World’s Most Incorrigible Cat Taught Me about Life, Love and Coming Clean.

This free event is part of the Books & Books International Visiting Author Series, generously sponsored by Camana Bay.

About the Book

Cat Daddy_LRUnconventional cat trainer Jackson Galaxy has taken the animal world by storm—upending the “cat person” stereotype and saving distressed felines (and their owners) on Animal Planet’s hit show My Cat from Hell, which just entered its fourth season.

But where did Galaxy come from and how did he acquire his singular ability to understand what cats need?

The answer lies within the pages of Galaxy’s memoir Cat Daddy: What the World’s Most Incorrigible Cat Taught Me about Life, Love and Coming Clean, which is now in paperback featuring a new afterword. In this book, Galaxy traces his journey from down-and-out rock musician with multiple addictions to animal shelter worker to gifted cat trainer. Along the way, he charts his trials with the original cat from hell, Benny, a supposedly “unbondable” cat bearing physical and emotional wounds as raw as Galaxy’s own.

Benny tests Galaxy’s skills at every turn, challenging and teaching him invaluable lessons not only about how to be better attuned to cat behaviour but how to live in the moment (without drugs or crutches), eschew complacency, and accept that you don’t always have control.

A moving tale chock full of informative sidebars featuring Galaxy’s signature cat mojo advice—most often gleaned from his experiences with Benny—Cat Daddy will uplift and inspire readers to view their cats, and their lives, through a clearer lens.

Cat Daddy is now available at Books & Books.
