Jackson Galaxy, the tattooed cat whisperer who stars on Animal Planet's "My Cat From Hell," is coming to Sarasota.
He'll be at the Hyatt Regency starting at 4 p.m. Sept. 14, to talk about cats and how to relate to them.
Then, starting at 5 p.m., he'll sign copies of his memoir, "Cat Daddy: What the World's Most Incorrigible Cat Taught Me About Life."
If you're a die-hard Galaxy fan, you can bid on a private dinner that follows the signing. Six people will dine with Galaxy and three officials of Cat Depot. Bidding is open from 11 a.m. Sept. 3 until 7 p.m. Friday, Sept. 6, at 7 p.m. The minimum bid is $500. Call 941-366-2404 or go to www.catdepot.com to bid.
(Cat Depot is a nonprofit, no-kill, free-roaming shelter, that provides a home for up to 130 homeless, abandoned and injured animals at any time.)
