Touring Group of Acro-Cats Has Helped to Save 200 Other Felines


Not many people believe that cats can be trained, let alone play musical instruments or jump through hoops – but that is exactly what The Amazing Acro-Cats do.

The Acro-Cats are a group of 17 traveling feline performers who do shows across America. Their trainer and caretaker, Samantha Martin, says that she started the group in 2009 after she failed to pursue her dream of being an animal trainer for Hollywood movies and television.

“People started showing up in droves to see these cats,” says Martin. “And even though they sucked – I mean half of the tricks would fail, or the cats would be really distracted – people just thought it was phenomenal.”
