Total Cat Mojo – Jackson Galaxy
Total Cat Mojo – The Ultimate Guide to Life with Your Cat.
Cat Mojo is the confidence that cats exhibit when they are at ease in their environment and in touch with their natural instincts—to hunt, catch, kill, eat, groom, and sleep. Problems such as litter box avoidance and aggression arise when cats lack this confidence. Jackson Galaxy’s number one piece of advice to his clients is to help their cats harness their mojo.
This book is his most comprehensive guide yet to cat behavior and basic cat care, rooted in understanding cats better. From getting kittens off to the right start socially, to taking care of cats in their senior years, and everything in between, this book addresses the head-to-toe physical and emotional needs of cats—whether related to grooming, nutrition, play, or stress-free trips to the vet.
I am a certified cat behaviorist through the IAABC and a registered veterinary technician. I am one of only two or three certified cat behaviorists in my state. There is a real need for cat behaviorists to help people out with understanding their felines.
As Jackson writes about in this book, cats thrive on having an environment that brings out their mojo. You want to bring their surroundings to life. A cat’s life should include things like cat towers and cat shelving units, play therapy, and novel stimuli such as cat grass and catnip plants to keep them entertained and happy.
In addition to doing private behavior consults – I also do volunteer behavior consultations for a cat rescue called Tenth Life where I still continually learn about cats and their behaviors. There is always more that can be learned the cats that share our home. Even I learned so much from Jackson’s book.
And that is the thing – even as a cat behaviorist and multi-cat owners – I am still reading every book and watching every video because learning is a life long commitment for me. I owe it to the cats I work with and the owners that devote everything that they have toward solving behavior problems and giving them the best life possible. Because every cat is a unique individual and some behaviors that they display require creative and innovative modification strategies. Not every behavior fits the book as they say.
