Calendar Pick: The Amazing Acro-cats

The Amazing Acro-cats

The unique troupe of performing rescued house cats is back in Athens! These furry entertainers roll on balls, ride skateboards, jump through hoops and more with a grand finale performance by Tuna and the Rock Cats. Boasted as the only all-cat band in the world, the show will feature special guest Cluck Norris, a tambourine- and cymbal-playing chicken. Through this family-friendly two-hour event, the Amazing Acro-cats disprove the myth that it’s impossible to train a cat. Samantha Martin, leader of the show and head of Rock Cats Rescue, educates the public about the benefits of clicker training while also endorsing responsible pet ownership. The rescue organization has found homes for over 300 cats and kittens in need. To learn more about the Amazing Acro-cats before the show, you can watch their story featured on the Netflix series “Cat People.”
