The Amazing Acro-cats are a troupe of REAL house cats that jump and pounce into your heart! Reaching out to shelters in need and accepting cats found homeless in the streets, Samantha Martin has not only rescued her own cats but also have found homes for over 182 cats and kittens. Giving them a second chance with positive reinforcement-only clicker training, they take these amazing abilities on the road and tour the nation in the infamous Acro-cat Bus!

Ever see a cat walk a tightrope? Meow you can! Ever see someone's pet balance and roll on a ball across the floor? Come see it here and meow! OMG WHUT? - a cat riding a skateboard! Alley the cat is even a Guiness world record holder. But wait, there is so, so much more! The grand finale, presenting the ONLY ALL CAT BAND IN EXISTENCE - Tuna and The "Rock-cats". The current band lineup is Tuna on Cowbell, Oz on guitar, Asti on Drums, and Nue on keyboard - Real cats purrforming with Real instruments have blown minds and educated audiences of all ages that CATS CAN ACTUALLY BE TRAINED! The Acro-cats have gained popularity on such shows like the Late Show with Stephen Colbert and on Animal Planet. You have to actually see it to believe it!

Here is what some audience members have said after watching The Amazing Acro-cats Featuring Tuna and the Rock Cats:
“My life is complete, I can die happy now.”
“I never thought it was possible, but now I am convinced!”
“You know, I was never really a cat person, but maybe there's something to this....”
“That was actually Amazing!”

We are pleased to announce a portion of the proceeds will benefit local rescue efforts Friends of Chicago Animal Care and Control!
