Total Cat Mojo by Jackson Galaxy

(TarcherPerigee, October 2017)

Cat Mojo: 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—in a territory where their ownership is assured.

This comprehensive cat care guide from the star of the hit Animal Planet show “My Cat from Hell,” Jackson Galaxy, reveals how the most important thing you can do to ensure your cat’s health and happiness is to understand one key concept: Cat Mojo. Problems such as litter box avoidance and aggression arise when cats are not able to hook into this innate, instinctual confidence they all possess—but need help from their human companions to harness.

According to Jackson Galaxy, you can best help your feline friend find their Mojo by developing a better understanding of how your cat thinks and feels, in order to create a thriving home environment for them, as well as a deeper personal relationship with them. Whether addressing the optimal diet, tackling common social challenges, or getting the most out of your daily playtime routine, this book covers the head-to-toe physical and emotional needs of all cats, from kittenhood to the senior years and every life stage in between. Total Cat Mojo is the must-have cat care bible for any cat lover.
