Calaxy, the star of the Animal Planet network‘s hugeiy popular show My Cat From Hell, shares the inspiring story of a very special cat named Benny who turned his life around—as weIl as his singular advice tor caring for, living with, and loving your own very special cat.

Jackson Galaxy, a.k.a. “Cat Daddy,“ isn‘t what you might expect as far as “cat experts“ are concerned (as the New York Times noted, he “looks like a Hells Angel“). Vet Galaxy‘s ability to connect with even the most troubled feline—not to mention the stressed-out humans attempting to carve out some semblance of sanity in the wake ot their wrath—is truly astonishing. In this book, Galaxy shares the unlikely story of how he came to be known as ‘Cat Daddy,“ focusing on his thirteen-year relationship with an incredible cat named Benny. When Benny arrived in his life, Galaxy was a down-and-out rock musician, with little more than a drug addiction and a part-time Job working in an animal shelter. When Benny‘s previous owner handed him to Gaiaxy in a cardboard carrier, Benny had seen better days—his pelvis had just been shattered by the wheels of a car—and the woman declared that he‘d been “un-bondable“ from day one. Nothing could have been farther from the truth. A poignant account of two broken beings who fixed each other, this memoir/cat care book also includes a wealth ot advice on living with and caring for your own special feline.

Through his work, he finds his purpose as a “cat whisperer.” Galaxy’s candor earns the reader’s trust, without being hackneyed; 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.
