Animal Planet Star To Speak at May 8 Event

(Kansas City) --- Jackson Galaxy, star of Animal Planet’s My Cat From Hell, will give a presentation on cat behavior at a limited-seating reception. The reception will be held at 5 PM May 8, at Unity Temple on the Plaza. All proceeds will be donated to six Kansas City area animal shelters.

“This is a great opportunity for anyone who loves cats – owners, shelter staff, and volunteers alike. If you want to gain a deeper understanding about what makes cats do the things they do, Jackson’s presentation is a must-see,” says co-sponsor Lisa Richman, owner of pet blog A Tonk’s Tail.

With over 15 years of experience as a cat behaviorist, Jackson regularly consults both with owners and shelters to help them develop behavioral and enrichment programs for their cats.

Jackson will be in town promoting the paperback release of his book, Cat Daddy, with an author event sponsored by Rainy Day Books immediately following the fundraiser reception.

Reception attendees will enjoy refreshments, a special Cat Mojo presentation from Jackson, and an autographed copy of the book, Cat Daddy ($15 value). Tickets can be purchased at

The local shelters benefitting from this fundraiser are Great Plains SPCA, the Kansas City Pet Project, Spay & Neuter Kansas City, Humane Society of Greater Kansas City, HELP Humane of Belton and Wayside Waifs.

Ticketholders to the reception will be automatically admitted to the author event.
