If you haven’t been able to see The Amazing Acro-cats in person due to COVID or for other reasons, fear not. A new video recording of a live performance will soon be released and it can be purchased from The Rock Cats Rescue website starting Oct. 23.
The Amazing Acro-cats Featuring Tuna and the Rock Cats is a troupe of rescued house cats who roll on balls, ride skateboards, jump through hoops.
The finale of the new one-and-a-half hour video is the only all-cat band in the entire world — Tuna and the Rock Cats. The current band lineup features St. Clawed on guitar, Bue on drums, Nue on keyboard, Ahi on woodblocks, Albacore on cowbell, JAX on trumpet, and Oz on Saxophone. There is even a chicken—Cluck Norris—rockin’ the tambourine.
“I can die happy now!” an audience member has claimed after seeing the band.
Chief Executive Human and cat lover Samantha Martin started training animals at a young age. She knew instantly she would be working with animals for the rest of her life. By founding Rock Cats Rescue, the real reason behind having a traveling animal show, she has saved the lives of over 260 cats and kittens.
Using the magic of clicker training, Martin (and a few other humans) travel with over 20 cats and kittens all across the United States, educating and entertaining audiences that cats actually can be trained while she continues to save the lives of cats and kittens through rescue, foster, and adoption.
Tuna and the Rock Cats have been featured on national TV shows, including the 2018 Puppy Bowl on Animal Planet during which they performed the half-time honors. Their most recent appearance was on a NOVA special about cats and dogs.
