Who is Minoo Rahbar?
Born on the 8th of August in the late 1960’s, in an unspecified country, possibly India, now with American nationality, Minoo Rahbar is an animal enthusiast and cat rescuer. She is definitely best known to the world for her significant media exposure due to a romantic involvement with ‘The Cat Daddy’ Jackson Galaxy, who is a cat behaviorist and a TV show host. Minoo has also had some other successes over the course of her sometimes lucrative animal enthusiast career since an unspecified date.
Early life and education: Escaping the horror
The reason that Minoo barely shared anything about her past is because it was extremely traumatizing to her, and she has always been immensely reluctant to reveal more. What is known is that she has been raised an only child by her father and mother, initially in her unknown home country, which was at the time terrorized by war.

The family later managed to escape to the US, and at the age of ten, Minoo started attending the US Grant School in Van Nuys, Los Angeles. She matriculated from this institution at some point, and afterwards enrolled into the University of California, Berkeley, from where she graduated with a certain degree in anthropology at an unspecified date.
Career: Contributing to humanity
Minoo started caring for feral animals (mostly cats) without the need for financial compensation. No source is yet able to specify the nature of any job she had prior to becoming a star among animal enthusiasts. Minoo’s day-to-day schedule mostly included scouring the neighborhoods and checking reports for any stray animals, bringing them back to her home, and nurturing them back to health.
Upon their recovery, Minoo tended to ask around and find perfect new owners for her previous patients. After years of being dedicated to this practice, Minoo received the Kitten Rescue’s Advocacy Award at the 4th Annual Furball event in Los Angeles’ West Hollywood’s House of Blues. Rahbar at some point met Jackson Galaxy at one of these events, and after they became involved, Minoo was able to dedicate herself to this passion with much more capability.
In 2019 she earns most of her income by helping her husband with his show, though indirectly, as she is not credited. Along with her husband, she is the manager of Jackson Galaxy Solutions, which sells its own line of holistic therapies and cat products.
She also co-runs the Jackson Galaxy Project – a foundation for raising awareness about animal rescue and adoption.
Love life: How did she become Jackson Galaxy’s wife?
As for her romantic involvements, owing to the fact that Minoo isn’t keen on sharing virtually anything about her past, there’s no evidence that she had any partners prior to her husband. Rahbar and Galaxy met at a kitten rescue benefit gala, and had coffee after the event. The two didn’t take long to recognize the mutual spark, and soon began dating. They are believed to have dated for a few years prior to marrying in a private ceremony in June 2014, at which point their dog Mooshka was the official ringbearer. Ever since marrying they’ve been very passionate about collaborating, and to-date have contributed greatly to each other’s aspirations.
They haven’t announced any plans for having children, possibly because of their ages, and there’s been no controversy surrounding their union. They reside together at an undisclosed location in Los Angeles.
A little more about her husband
Born Richard Kirschner under the sign of Taurus on the 28th of April 1966, in New York City USA, ‘The Cat Daddy’ Jackson Galaxy is a 53 year-old Caucasian cat behaviorist, author and television host. He is probably most familiar to the worldwide audience thanks to his show entitled “My Cat from Hell”, though he has also been involved in a number of other TV shows, some of which he hosted too.
He’s been in the entertainment business since 2011, though his love and care for animals greatly precedes his career. Jackson is the writer of two New York Times best-selling works, both dedicated to animal care. Besides these, he wrote a few other books on the topic, and is in 2019 one of the most revered cat experts on the planet.
It’s no secret that Jackson enjoyed nearly every kind of diet prior to meeting Minoo, but she gradually changed that. She has been vegan for almost five decades of her life, and upon becoming involved with the cat behavior expert, inspired him to follow her down this road.
Another significant fact is that Jackson never planned on marrying, but nowadays he cites his wife as one of the most stable parts of his life, whom he often clings to in times of need.
They have 14 pets!
That’s right, you’ve read nothing wrong. Jackson and Minoo own a total of 14 pets. Their four feral cats usually sleep in their garage if they’re not outside, while their five indoor cats don’t wander as much. Alongside nine cats, they also have three dogs and two turtles. It’s interesting to note that Jackson describes himself as ‘bi-pet-sual’, as he explained, meaning that he loves both cats and dogs.
Because of the general belief that cats are more of a feminine pet, Jackson has in his life had to deal with rumors regarding his sexuality, but most of them automatically died out after he married Minoo.
What is ‘blep’?
Being as respected among cat enthusiasts as he is, Jackson took it upon himself to explain the cat behavior phenomenon commonly referred to as ‘blep’. When a cat performs a ‘blep’, it sticks its tongue out and forgets to take it back in, which can sometimes go on for minutes. Galaxy took the opportunity to explain that this is not a ‘glitch in the system’, but that cats, just as much as humans, can sometimes forget what they were doing and persist with a physical action.
What is Minoo Rahbar’s net worth?
Have you lately considered just how rich Minoo Rahbar could be, especially around the latter half of 2019? Various authoritative sources indicate an amount that is just over $200,000, while her husband’s net worth is greater than $1.5 million, making for a combined household wealth of close to $2 million. Minoo earned this sum largely thanks to numerous collaborations with her husband, while Galaxy obtained it from lending his animal behavior expertise to his viewers. Seeing as they’re both still intent on staying in the business, the said amount will definitely grow.

So, what do you think are the physical specifications of this animal enthusiast? Minoo has sadly not yet shared anything on this topic. Her height, weight, and vital statistics are unknown, though her body shape is often described as regular. Her dress, shoe and bra size are also yet to be revealed. She has pitch black hair and dark brown eyes, and her complexion is generally dark.
Social media presence
Since Minoo has devoted her life to caring for animals, it would contribute to her cause if she had a constant presence on social media, as that would help her expand her reach and thus find more homes for recuperating animals. However, it looks as though she relies on her husband’s public presence to do this, as she is nowhere to be found on two of the three social media networks. Her Facebook profile is private, and followed by less than 1,000 people. She doesn’t have Twitter or Instagram accounts.
