The Meow-loween one-of-a-kind purr-formances feature special thrills and chills as the Acro-Cats jump through scary skeleton wreaths, roll pumpkins, leap over tombstones and more delightfully daring feats of agility! The Skele-cats (aka the Rock Cats, our all-feline band) will make a special appearance playing ghoulish favorites such as "Don't Purr the Reaper", "Ooh, Ooh, Witchy Kitty," and "Cat-ster Mash." Samantha Martin, Mistress of Scare-a-monies for this troupe of Fiendishly Frightful Felines, fully disproves the notion that "cats can't be trained." Hope to see you at the Meow-loween shows this month or at our purr-formances in the cities we're traveling to through August 2014. Check the schedule above for a venue near you!

Fostering and finding fur-ever homes for shelter and rescue kittens is an important part of the Amazing Acro-Cats. Through efforts with shelter and rescue organizations, Samantha Martin has found homes for 120 kittens over the past 4 years.

We have four new foster kittens are currently touring with the Acro-Cats - So four more Kickstarter 'Name a foster kitten'  reward people will be notified with a picture and some info about the newest babies.

ACRO-CATS STAFF MEWS - DRIVERS WANTED! The Acro-Cats are looking for qualified drivers to help with getting the Tour Bus with the Honda Element in tow from city to city as we travel from purr-formance destination to purr- ormance destination. Candidate drivers need a valid and current drivers license and confidence behind the wheel of the bus in the picture on the right. Also, a really big also, is that drivers must get along well with cats! Contact Samantha Martin at for information on pay and additional details.

VOLUNTEERS NEEDED In each city on the tour, the Acro-Cats always rely on the kindness of cat-lovers to assist in setting up the merchandise table, to wrangle cats and to help with props and set as needed. Our volunteers get to see the show for FREE and also meet the animal troupe before the audience members do! If you or someone you know are interested in volunteering to help with an Acro-Cats performance or two, please contact leaving your name, contact info and the city and performances you're available to volunteer for and we'll be in touch! Meow-ny thanks!

Got Parking? GOT PARKING? Once the Acro-Cats arrive in our destination cities, we need a spot to park our fleet - the tour bus (Cat-Mobile) and the Honda Element with Tuna on top. The tour bus needs access to a 20 or 30 amp regular outlet to keep the generator live and operating. The Element needs to accommodate it's 9' growth spurt in height. Please contact us at if you have parking that would meet our needs. Meow-ny Thanks!

Lead On Tuna! HEY - IT'S A BIRD! IT'S A PLANE! IT'S A CAT??!! Take a gander at the newest addition to the Acro-Cats transportation fleet. A beautiful, bigger-than-life sculpture of Acro-Cats super-star Tuna perches atop the Honda Element leading the way to the next venue and the next venue and the next! Sleek and white with a curled tail and glow-in-the-dark eyes, this sculpture is Samantha Martin's dream come true and a beautiful piece of Acro-Cats art.

Please let me know if anyone is still owed a reward (other than the name a foster kitten, since those happen as I get kittens)

Also if you have free tickets give me a shout at 773-391-3357 and let me know dates and times you would like to use them.  Or if you have any other questions.

Thank you all again!

Samantha, Tuna & the Whole Gang at the Amazing Acro-Cats
