Yeah, you read that right – a cat acrobat show.
The Amazing Acro-cats is a small circus troupe of cats and other domestic animals by animal trainer Samantha Martin. Her animals are clicker trained and they go back to their cages when a whistle is blown. Most are her pets but some cats are fosters and available for adoption. All the animals are rescues and strays. She wants to inspire people to clicker train their cats. She even explains how this can be handy in emergency situations like when you need to find them quickly if there’s a fire.
Victor and I get real lazy to go to Williamsburg, Brooklyn. That’s really far by train from Bay Ridge, Brooklyn but for a cat show, I just had to see it. There was no way I was going to miss this show. So we journeyed even farther into Brooklyn. All the way to the Muse in Bushwick to see The Amazing Acro-cats and Rockcats. You can even meet the stars after the show.
We didn’t know what to expect. It was cute and entertaining. For me it was great. I wouldn’t mind seeing it again. Samantha and her furry crew travel around the country nine months out of the year teaching us about clicker training and how “cats will work when paid while dogs give it away for free”(as quoted from the show).
