Book Review: Catification by Jackson Galaxy and Kate Benjamin

catification bookWould you like to make your living space more cat friendly but don’t have the time, space or money to do so?  Then the book Catification: Designing a Happy and Stylish Home for Your Cat (and You!) by Jackson Galaxy (star of Animal Planet’s My Cat From Hell) and Kate Benjamin (creator of would be a great resource for you.

The book contains many suggestions that don’t take a lot of materials, time or money to do and will make your feline companion feel much more comfortable in his living space.  There are several projects with step-by-step instructions, along with illustrations and photos.  You get a peek inside Jackson’s home and how he and Kate catified it, and Kate shares how she went about catifying her office.

There are many tips on subjects such as creating a catio, how to make an easy cat fountain and setting up a floor-to-ceiling climbing pole for your cat.  At the beginning of each project, the book lists all of the tools and materials needed for completion.

Another aspect of this book I liked is the input provided by cat guardians from around the world on ways they catified their living space.  You might not want or be able to duplicate them exactly, but they definitely provide ideas and inspiration.

I give this book two thumbs up and would say it’s definitely worth the investment. Catification: Designing a Happy and Stylish Home for Your Cat (and You!) is available as an e-book ($7.99) or in paperback ($12.90) from
