Events by EventfulThe Amazing Acro-Cats Purr at Proctors, Schenectady NY!
One of only four “performing domestic cat troupes” in the United States, The Amazing Acro-Cats are celebrated nationwide to sell out venues.
The Amazing Acro-Cats delight and astound audiences of all ages as they perform their remarkable feats of agility, pushing carts, riding skateboards, rolling barrels, ringing bells, turning on lights, walking tight ropes, jumping through hoops, and much more!
Our all cat band, “The Rock Cats” has added new members. Oz on guitar, Dakota on drums, Nue on keyboards, Sookie on chimes and Gregory Peck (who happens to be a chicken) can really peck that tambourine! Band Manager Tuna has decided that every song needs more cowbell, giving their unique tunes a Latin flair and includes an island rhythm section.
The majority of The Amazing Acro-Cats were adopted from shelters. Keeping with that tradition, Master Trainer Samantha Martin has fostered over 120 shelter kittens and trains them not only to perform tricks, but important emergency situation maneuvers. These foster kittens have become a heart warming part of the performance as they eagerly wait for their new fur-ever home!
The Amazing Acro-Cats have been featured on television, online as well as magazines and now BOOKS! Yes, our very own Tuna has been immortalized in a new book “Animal Superstars” www.alinealexandernewman.com. In turn, Jax, not to be shown up by Tuna, is featured in the latest edition of National Geographic Kids Magazine! Our 15 minute segment aired on Animal Planet’s “Must Love Cats”, a series which highlighted exceptional cats and their owners all across the United States. The Amazing Acro-Cats have appeared on numerous televised/web programs including: The Soup and I Can Has Cheezburger. AOL News online gave us a great review and Cat Fancy Magazine Loves The Amazing Acro-Cats according to their article in the April 2011 edition. Additionally, Samantha and The Amazing Acro-Cats were featured in the “Dogs and Cats” edition of National Geographic along with other animal training experts, including Cesar Milan.
