Wordless Wednesday – Cat Daddy Book Review

Cat Daddy

Welcome To Wordless Wednesday At Create With Joy!

Cat Daddy by Jackson Galaxy
#ChewyInfluencer Review

When Jackson Galaxy first swaggered into the Humane Society of Boulder Valley many years ago, he wasn’t looking for a cat or dreaming of becoming a cat whisperer. No, the now famous star of Animal Planet’s My Cat From Hell was simply looking for a job where he could serve animals by day and focus his creative energies at night on writing songs by night for his band.

And then, along came a cat named Benny that changed his life and his destiny.

Cat Daddy: What the World’s Most Incorrigible Cat Taught Me About Life, Love, and Coming Clean is the fascinating story of their relationship.

During a period in his life when Jackson was down and out and trying to recover from his drug addictions, Benny – an equally down and out cat whose pelvis had been shattered in a car accident – was dropped off by his previous owner at the shelter. Before long, Jackson found himself fostering Benny to health and bonding with him in ways his previous owner had never managed to do.

For the duration of their 13-year relationship, Jackson began observing, communicating with, and learning everything about cats that he could from Benny. Benny – the cat described as “unbondable” by his previous owner – was eager to teach Jackson not only about the fabulous feline kingdom, but about love and life itself.

Filled with insights and tips into everything from tips on how to care for your cats to the real story behind cat shelters to the man behind the beard and the tattoos, Cat Daddy is nothing at all like the book I expected it to be – but it’s a book that every cat lover should read.

Disclosure: I received a copy of Cat Daddy from Chewy.com as a member of the #ChewyInfluencer Network. I’ve come to think of Chewy.com as the place where Tsunami and Magellan get all of their culinary and entertainment needs met. Isn’t it nice to know that Chewy takes care of their parents needs too?

    It seems like Jackson Galaxy has a great story to tell! We all have to overcome challenges. Benny must have been a great teacher. I’m glad that Jackson Galaxy decided to step out and help the world to understand cats a little better.
