Cat videos are taking over the internet, but their antics are even better in person? After a foray training animals for movies and television shows in Hollywood, Chicago-based expert animal trainer Samantha Martin is now on a mission to prove that cats can be trained just as well as dogs with her cat-centric show, The Amazing Acro-cats. Using clicker training technology, Martin’s cats jump through hoops, read signs, skateboard, and much more. The show culminates in a performance from The Rock Cats, an all-feline band that puts the Pussycat Dolls to shame. Martin and her friends will entertain and educate the audience about how to train their cats and other animals and provide information about cat adoption and care. Their fall tour culminates with a performance on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert on November 17! Leave YouTube behind and check out this amazing show before the rest of the country.
