First, sorry about the cover being blurry. I could only find the correct pic in a smaller size and when I made it bigger... Well that's what happened. Anyway.
I was familiar with Jackson Galaxy from his television show on Animal Planet, My Cat from Hell, when I saw this audiobook come through my department. I considered it, but ended up passing. Then my grandmother gave me a page from a magazine with some animal books she was interested in, and this was on it. Again, I considered it and decided to pass. Then I was checking it in and... fine, I'll read it already.
It was interesting. The language was a bit distracting, especially as this was in audio. I'd be pulling up for gas, and he'd start F this and that, with kids in a nearby car staring, and I couldn't get that the car off fast enough. Beyond that, there wasn't quite as much about how Benny (the cat) influenced his life as there was about what a mess he was, but that didn't bother me as much as it apparently did some. And there are tips recapped at the end (they are kind of scattered throughout the book, but this makes them more obvious).
I don't regret reading this, but I would have rathered less of the poor language, or perhaps it would have been better to try in print. And I will keep watching the show.
