Popularly known as “The Cat Daddy,” Jackson Galaxy is the host and executive producer of Animal
Planet's long running hit show “My Cat From Hell.” Jackson, an animal advocate and cat behavior and
wellness expert, is also a two-time New York Times best-selling author with more than 25 years of
experience working with cats and their guardians. He is on a mission to educate people about cats and
deepen the human and cat bond, while reducing the number of animals that end up in shelters.
Long before Jackson was known as “The Cat Daddy,” the working musician found he had a unique ability
to connect with cats when he took a job at a local animal shelter. During the decade that followed, he
worked with thousands of cats, successfully lowering the euthanasia rate at his shelter. His work at the
shelter led to a private practice of working with cat guardians and cats in their homes, which helped
keep cats out of the shelter in the first place, and became the premise for “My Cat From Hell.” An
immediate hit, the show has been a broadcast staple for ten seasons and has become a global
phenomenon, placing Jackson at the forefront of a worldwide obsession with all things feline.
All along, Jackson has stayed true to his roots as a shelter worker, educator, fervent advocate and in-
home cat family therapist. At the root of Jackson’s unique approach is a philosophy known as “Cat
Mojo,” which teaches cat guardians the skills to help their feline friends build confidence and thrive
within their environment, and to better the human/cat relationship at the same time. Jackson has
extensively detailed his work and life in his growing collection of authored books. His first, “Cat Daddy,”
is a memoir, telling the story of a life-changing relationship with a cat named Benny during his years as a
musician, shelter worker and an addict struggling to find a path towards recovery. His subsequent
books, co-written by Cat Style Expert Kate Benjamin from Hauspanther.com, “Catify to Satisfy” and
“Catification,” which both landed on the New York Times Best-Sellers List, focuses on designing a home
that works for both cats and humans. His latest book, “Total Cat Mojo,” is a comprehensive guide to his
approach on total cat wellness and eliminating behavioral problems by understanding cats and their
instinctive behavior.
Jackson has always been committed to bringing better products to the market that live up to his high
standards. Jackson Galaxy Solutions, the only line of flower essence remedies designed by a behavior
specialist and a veterinarian, has been helping animals live happier and healthier lives since 1995. More
recently, his partnership with Petmate has brought a 20-year vision to fruition, providing innovative toys
and products for every stage of a cat’s life.
True to his goal of helping to save all animals, Jackson started the Jackson Galaxy Project in 2015, now a
Signature Program of GreaterGood.org, which seeks to better the lives of at-risk animals by transforming
the places they live and helping the people who care for them. Jackson spends much of his time these
days devoted to growing the reach and impact of the life-saving JGP Programs and partnerships,
including Cat Pawsitive, which focuses on giving shelters and rescue workers the tools to train cats in
their care in order to help them find their mojo and get adopted, Safe Haven, which retrofits domestic
violence shelters so victims can bring their pets when leaving an abusive home, and Operation
Homeward Bound, which is a transport program that flies cats and dogs to shelters around the country
that have more room to find them new homes.
Jackson has been featured on 20/20, The Today Show, The Ellen DeGeneres Show, The Late Show with
Steven Colbert, The Tonight Show, EXTRA, The New York Times, USA Today, The Washington Post and
