CAT DADDY: Reviews

“Galaxy’s candor earns the reader’s trust…he seamlessly weaves his relationship with Benny into the larger story of his life and recovery, which will appeal to a readership beyond cat lovers.”

—Publishers Weekly


"This book is no ordinary cat memoir, nor is it an ordinary cat advice book. It is an inspirational tour de force that offers an intimate glimpse at Jackson, the man, and Jackson, the Cat Daddy. This is one of the most unconventional memoirs I’ve ever read, but then, I didn’t expect anything less from Jackson."

-Ingrid King,

"Each of us sheds light on our subject from our own particular point of view. Fortunately for us all, Jackson Galaxy's light is very bright. his success at resolving behavioral difficulties in cats stems from his ability to slide his mind into the cat's point of view an proceed from there. His insights into both human and cat behavior are right on."

–Anitra Frazier, author of The Natural Cat

“He’s the kind of magic man who can lull a shelter’s roomful of ferocious felines to sleep.”


“With his goatee and tattoos, not to mention his custom-lined guitar-case-turned-pet-supply-kit, Galaxy might not seem like a typical “cat person” — but who better than a New Yorker inked with images of cats and his own set of whiskers to mediate between a fussy feline and its guardian?”
