For awhile now, Jackson has been trying to find a way to help those of you who ask questions about your cats through the comments on this site. Without further ado, here he is in his own words:
Hey there Cat Person!
Around here, we see everything through Cat Mojo-Colored Glasses – all you need to know about what's bothering your cat, about enriching your bond, about "catifying your world" – just depends on understanding how they see things, a little more clearly.
For awhile now, I've been trying to find a way to help those of you who ask questions about your cats through the comments on this site, as well as on Facebook, Twitter, online, in the supermarket...
I know you are demonstrating concern and love for your cat companions - I get it, and it’s amazing!
The problem is that at this point, because of the volume of inquiries, I can’t answer them personally (although I do see them all!), and so I’ve been working very hard at collecting resources to answer the most common questions. This is what I have right now, with, I promise, more to come.
If I’ve missed something, please let me know!
Peace, Love, Light & Cat Mojo! Jackson
Here's the list of resources right now, straight from Jackson himself.
The website already contains quite a few informative posts and video posts, but I'm working to make this site an even better, easier to use, and more comprehensive source of info for all things cat. For example, I'm working on getting articles I've written onto the site. If you want to have all new posts delivered straight to your email (or RSS reader, if you're a real techie-type), subscribe here. Just choose to "Get Jackson Galaxy delivered by email" (or choose your RSS reader).
Being on the email list means you'll get info and links to the products I use regularly to help solve and prevent cat problems (on the T.V. show and otherwise). For example, there was a newsletter for every episode of "My Cat From Hell" this past season, telling you all the products seen on the show and why I chose them. You can sign up for the email list here. And if you're curious about past editions of the Newsletter, browse through the archives.
Cat Daddy: What The World's Most Incorrigible Cat Taught Me About Life, Love, and Coming Clean. My book is being released May 10, 2012. Here's an excerpt from the publisher's description: "...singular advice for living with, caring for, and loving the feline in your home. Cat Daddy is laced throughout with Galaxy’s amazing “Cat Mojo” advice for understanding what cats need most from us humans in order to live happier, healthier lives."
For every copy of CAT DADDY pre-ordered before May 10, Tarcher/Penguin will donate $1.00 to the cause of saving shelter cats. To make your preorder count, simply e-mail your receipt (or a photo/scan of your receipt) to: CatDaddyBook@gmail.com.
See this post for more details on how your pre-orders are helping cats and groups that save them.
(And, check back on this website for a tour stop near you. Maybe I can discuss your question in person!)
I check in on Facebook almost every day, along with the 23,000+ members of our Team Cat Mojo Community. I may answer a quick question or two there, but what's really cool is: community members like you offer their suggestions and insight as well. It's a great place to bond, get support, and share your knowledge. Go Team Cat Mojo!
I check in to the Twitterverse almost every day, too. And I'll occasionally have a tweety-type discussion on cat issues there. So feel free to follow me at Twitter.com/JacksonGalaxy You might find me answering a question you were wondering about...you might even be the person who asked it!
I hope those resources help. And like I said, I'm working on getting this site even more Cat Mojo Friendly. So I hope you check back.
Thanks for joining me on this wild ride!
Peace, Love, Light and Cat Mojo, Jackson
