The Acro-Cats Pounce on Portland
The HEADWATERS THEATRE (55 NE Farragut St #9 in Portland OR) welcomes Samantha Martin and The Amazing Acro-Cats, one of only four performing house-cat troupes in the U.S, from August 1st to 14th.
The Amazing Acro-Cats will perform their remarkable feats of agility (remarkable because they’re …you know…house cats). They will be pushing carts, riding skateboards, rolling barrels, ringing bells, turning on lights, walking tight ropes, jumping through hoops, and much more!
Come on out to meet little “JAX”! She’s the newest rescue and has purr-trayed great skill as an Acro-Cat. You will be amazed by her unique balancing abilities.
The all cat combo, “The Rock-Cats” have grown in size, style and diversity! Two band members have been added! In addition to Pinky on guitar, Dakota on drums and Nue on keyboards, Hen-diana Jones (who happens to be a chicken) can really peck a tambourine. Band manager, Tuna, decided that every song needs more cowbell so instead of just a jazz ensemble these cats are now into Latin grooves and have an island rhythm section!
Under the careful direction of Master Trainer Samantha Martin, the “greatest show in cat history” (as Tuna references it) offers a unique blend of spectacle, entertainment and public awareness. As a pioneering feline behavioral expert and whisperer, Martin has devoted her life to animal welfare and public education helping people better understand their animal counterparts.
In addition, Samantha has personally fostered and found homes for close to 90 kittens in the last 3 years! These kittens sometimes travel with the Amazing Acro-Cats and are a part of the show as they wait for their ‘fur-ever’ home.
The Amazing Acro-Cats are preening because of all the wonderful experiences they’ve had lately! Not the least of which is a segment in Animal Planet’s “Must Love Cats” currently airing on re-runs. The series highlights exceptional cats and their owners all across the States and the cats are so proud to be a part of this terrific new series.
The Amazing Acro-Cats are also in the special Spring 2012 Dogs and Cats edition of National Geographic. Samantha is in great company in this edition with Cesar Millan and others offering their expertise on animal training!
Cat Fancy Magazine Loves The Amazing Acro-Cats with a fabulous article in the April 2011 edition.
