Update #6

REWARDS!!

2 comments

YES...It's that time!  Most of the rewards have been ordered and come in....Still waiting on Hoodies, but they are in the works. As are the PawCasso cat paintings. Our first stops were Austin and San Antonio and we are currently headed to Baton Rouge and New Orleans for our fabulous Meowy Christmas show.

If you are in the Baton Rouge or New Orleans area, please shoot me an email so I can get you on the list, if you have free tickets coming your way.  I have not had a chance to print out physical tickets yet.  My team consists mainly of me...and my felines. Their idea of help is not always productive, but they do seem to enjoy it as you will see in the picture below.   So please be patient...I promise rewards are coming soon!  I shipped the first 4 levels out today!  Just have to match up T-shirt sizes and wait for the hoodies and the next two will be going out next week.

Also if you have not submitted your information, please take the time to do so.

Foster Kittens!  A few people submitted their foster kitten names.  Holly (Our brown and white tabby kitten found in a woodpile) and cheesedoodle (an orange and white kitten) Holly has been adopted!  Cheesedoodle still is looking, but her sister got her furever home as well.  The little boy woodpile kitten 'Pickles' has his furever human in Austin now.  His adoption makes kitten number 100 that has been adopted out by Acro-cats since April of 2003.  Also named is one of my newest foster kittens found at a put put golf course near Pigeon Forge TN  Her name is Cleo-Catra and is all white with blue eyes.  I will be sending out photos of other kittens as they come into my life throughout the year.  See some of our current and recently adopted kittens below

Want to see the show for free?  We need volunteers for every show to help sell our merchandise, take tickets and help in cleaning is always appreciated. Plus you get to love on the cats a bit as well.   Extra special prizes for people that can help us load in, set up and load out.  Also need some help getting those rewards out.  The cats frankly aren't just that much help.  They love playing in the boxes more than anything.

We are planning an East Coast Tour starting in March!  Please submit your venue ideas at www.circuscats.com so we can come to your city soon!!

Currently Hiring...Experienced bus drivers for the 2013 year.  For the long hauls from one city to the next.  I will be supplying a tentative schedule in the next couple of updates.  Hoping to find people either in the city we are at or the city we are heading to.

I also need a cat loving touring assistant for 1 to 3 month legs of each tour.  Train cats and see the world!  Must have animal care experience (there is a lot of litter to scoop!), a sense of adventure (and humor) and be comfortable on stage as the cats sometimes make fools of us. 

Also while I am in New Orleans, I need a carpenter that can do floors.  The carpeting HAS to go.  I am  in need a computer wiz as well, to help me set up my 'cloud' paperless office system.  Tuna keeps eating my receipts.  These are both paying gigs.  Pay TBD

Hope to see all of you at a show soon!

More updates soon, with pictures of the bus in transformation on the OUTSIDE!

Samantha, Tuna and the gang THANK YOU ALL FOR YOUR CONTINUED SUPPORT!

      Samantha, Sorry if this is not the best way to reach you, but we are signed up to receive postcards from Tuna on the road addressed to our cats, Oliver and Zoey, but sadly Zoey just passed away. It upsets our kids to be reminded that Zoey isn't with us when they get the postcards, so can you just send the remaining cards to Oliver, Lia, and Hannah? Thank you,
      Ruth Fawley
