In his early 20s, he legally changed his name to Jackson Galaxy. Prior to involvement in the Humane Society of Boulder Valley in Boulder, Colorado, where he began to study cat behavior, Jackson obtained a Master’s degree in Fine Arts in acting. After several years of private practice, in 2002 Jackson Galaxy and holistic veterinarian Dr. Jean Hovfe founded Little Big Cat, Inc. – a center which provides “mind-body” consulting, focused on bringing together the behavioral and physical health of cats. These two “cat experts” also founded Spirit Essences, the first and so far the only line of holistic remedies for animals, primarily cats. These engagements provided the basis for Jackson Galaxy’s net worth, and also opened the doors to his on-camera career.
In 2007 Jackson transferred to Los Angeles, California, where he started his own private consulting practice. Since then, he has been working with cat owners and cats, one-on-one, applying his “cat mojo” in order to establish deeper connection between animals and their owners. In 2011, he transferred his life calling into a prominent TV career – he became the host and executive producer of “My Cat From Hell” TV show. Airing regularly on the Animal Planet, the show is currently in its seventh season. Jackson’s characteristically “rock style” appearance with bald head, black rim glasses and full-sleeve tattoos of cats on both arms “only” contributed to the show’s popularity. Certainly, this venture has provided the majority of Jackson Galaxy’s revenues.
Since then, Jackson has appeared in several other cat-focused TV shows including “Think Like a Cat”, “Cats 101” and “America’s Cutest Cat”, as well as the Animalist Network web series “Cat Mojo”. Apart from all those mentioned above, Jackson Galaxy is the member of the board of directors of Fix Nation and Stray Cat Alliance as well as on the Neighborhood Cats’ board of advisers. It is certain that all these engagements are favoring Jackson’s “no-kill” policy which is focused on stopping the killing of around 4 million stray cats in shelters all over the states.
In 2012, Jackson Galaxy published his first book “Cat Daddy: What the World’s Most Incorrigible Cat Taught Me About Life, Love and Coming Clean”. His second book “Catification: Designing a Happy & Stylish Home for Your Cat (and You!)” instantly became a New York Times’ bestseller after its release in 2014. The “Catify to Satisfy: Simple Solutions for Creating a Cat-Friendly Home” published in 2015 reprised the success of the previous book. Doubtlessly, these accomplishments have helped Jackson Galaxy to increase his overall net worth by a large margin.
When it comes to his personal life, Jackson Galaxy has been married since 2014 to Minoo Rahbar. In the past, he underwent gastric-bypass surgery in order to reduce his 400 pounds weight and prevent severe health problems, which he now says is in the past..
