Amazing Acro-Cats


The Amazing AcroCats, featuring Tuna and the Rock Cats, are a traveling troupe of trained cats. Yes – real cats! You might have seen them recently in episode two of Netflix’s “Cat People.” Their one-of-a-kind, two-hour-long purrformance features talented domestic house cats, all former orphans and strays, jumping through hoops, riding a skateboard, balancing on yoga balls, and more! 

The show finale is the only all-cat band in the world: Tuna and the Rock Cats! See St. Claude on guitar, Bowie on drums, and Nue on keyboard, with Tuna on cowbell. New band members include Sookie on chimes, Buggles on trumpet, Oz on sax, and Roux on clarinet. There’s even a chicken named Cluck Norris on tambourine! 

“I can die happy now!” one audience member exclaimed after seeing the band. 

Training animals at a young age, Chief Executive Human (CEH) Samantha Martin always knew she wanted to work with animals. Samantha uses clicker training, a technique involving only positive reinforcement. Her goal is to entertain audiences while teaching the value of feline enrichment.

Samantha and her assistants tour the U.S. in their catified bus with 16 cats, two rats, one chicken, and often a litter of foster kittens. They have found homes for 300+ foster kittens. Rock Cats Rescue, the AcroCats’ parent company, is a 501c3 nonprofit focused on saving cats “One Click at a Time” through cat welfare, rescue, and adoption.

The Amazing AcroCats have been featured on national TV shows like The Colbert Report, Animal Planet’s Puppy Bowl, CBS News Sunday Morning, and PBS Nova’s “Cat Tales.” More information can be found at www.rockcatsrescue.org.
