Here are 5 tips to help you be an impeccable host for your guests & your cats.
UPDATE: Winner Announced!
Big congratulations to our winning cat, Jameson Zane of Wisconsin! This adorable guy is going to have his paws full real soon. His guardian will be helping him to pick out $100 worth of products from The Jackson Galaxy Collection by Petmate!
But...why is he wearing pajamas? Scroll down for his story, which includes the answer....
His guardian, Beth H., did a great job of summing up his story. Here it is.
Jameson Zane, left for euthanasia at a vet's office because of incontinence and Spina Bifida, my friend who works in rescue was present and took him home...after hearing about him, I asked to adopt him and another friend who is a flight attendant volunteered to fly him from North Carolina home to Wisconsin! He is now my beloved baby and I can't imagine life without him!
Congrats again to Jameson Zane.
And a big THANK YOU to everyone in #TeamCatMojo for participating, voting, commenting, and most of all...rescuing and helping shelter cats! Even though the contest is over, it's still totally worth it to scroll through and read people's entries. The power of #TeamCatMojo is all over this thing. (Yes, that means you and your #TeamCatMojo community!)
Whether it's through being a voice of support and awareness in the public at large, adopting, volunteering with a shelter, or stepping up to offer resources when your co-worker tells you "My boyfriend found a cat....." You are the change-makers.
From Jackson, Petmate, and the cats: THANK YOU.

They might be things you’ve worked on since reading the book, or they might be bigger projects that you have yet to tackle. No worries! We want to see it all! The more we share ideas with other cat guardians, the more we can help each other to create awesome environments for our cats and build our community.
First up: Litter Box Catification
Please click the link below to fill out our questionnaire and upload some photos to show us what you have going on. We’re looking forward to seeing what you’ve got for us!
What a Year
It was a big year for us, #TeamCatMojo.
A new season of My Cat From Hell, a new book that hit #1 on the New York Times Bestseller list (co-authored with Cat Style Expert Kate Benjamin of Hauspanther.com), The new Jackson Galaxy Collection by Petmate, and the launch of The Jackson Galaxy Foundation, including a holiday donation of $20,000 of pet food from Wellness Natural Pet Food for Dogs and Cats.
The highlight of it all, though, was getting to meetyou face-to-face. Most of it happened during the Fall, on the book tour for Catification: Designing a Happy & Stylish Home for Your Cat (and You!).
Thank you for coming out to hear me and meet me. Thank you for making me smile. And thanks for being a reminder of why I do what I do.
Here's a Video Scrapbook
As we look back on 2014, I just wanted to say thanks for the memories!

Why Jackson Galaxy prefers natural cat litters.
In my experience of visiting the homes of frustrated, had-it-up-to-here cat guardians over the past 20 years, I can tell you that there are there are actually two ends to the problem, so to speak; your cat’s problem, and your problem.
