CAT DADDY What the World’s Most Incorrigible Cat Taught Me About Life, Love and Coming Clean by Jackson Galaxy Star of Animal Planet’s My Cat from Hell

Unconventional 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 was just renewed for a third 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 new memoir CAT DADDY: What the World’s Most Incorrigible Cat Taught Me about Life, Love and Coming Clean (Tarcher/Penguin hardcover, on-sale May 10). 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 behavior 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.
