The Amazing Acro-cats are a troupe of REAL house cats that jump and pounce into your heart! Reaching out to shelters in need and accepting cats found homeless in the streets, Samantha Martin has not only rescued her own cats but also have found homes for over 172 cats and kittens. Giving them a second chance with positive reinforcement-only clicker training, they take these amazing abilities on the road and tour the nation in the infamous Acro-cat Bus!

Ever see a cat walk a tightrope? Meow you can! Ever see someone’s pet balance and roll on a ball across the floor? Come see it here and meow! OMFG WHUT? – a cat riding a skateboard! But wait, there is so, so much more! The grand finale, presenting the ONLY ALL CAT BAND IN EXISTENCE – Tuna and the Rock Cats! The current band lineup is Tuna on Cowbell, Oz on guitar, Asti on Drums, and Nue on keyboard – Real cats purrforming with Real instruments have blown minds and educated audiences of all ages that CATS CAN ACTUALLY BE TRAINED! The Acro-cats have gained popularity on such shows like the Late Show with Stephen Colbert and on Animal Planet. You have to actually see it to believe it!

Here is what some audience members have said after watching The Amazing Acro-cats Featuring Tuna and the Rock Cats:

“My life is complete, I can die happy now”
“I never thought it was possible, but now I am convinced!”
“You know, I was never really a ca person, but maybe there’s something to this….”
“That was F@$!ing Amazing!”

Here is what the media has to say about us!

    I would love to win these tickets so I could take my sister out for her birthday! We both love cats!!

    • Rayna K. June 25, 2016 at 5:37 pm #

      My cat is my furry child. If I wasn’t in a relationship, I would definitely have more cats. Since I am in a relationship- please choose me for the win, so I can surround myself with crazy cat-ladyness!!!

  2. Ryan June 20, 2016 at 3:31 pm #

    Please let me go! We just lost one of our pets over the weekend to old age and I think this might be just what we need.

  3. Jeremy Winkler June 20, 2016 at 5:42 pm #

    I have two boys who would love to see how cats rock ou?!?!?!

  4. Victoria June 20, 2016 at 6:55 pm #

    This would make a great bday present for my hubby!!

  5. Shaina June 20, 2016 at 7:17 pm #

    WHAT?! This sounds amazing. I’ve been on crutches for 7 weeks and haven’t been able to do fun outdoorsy stuff, so this would be a great way to spend part of my weekend.

  6. Michael June 20, 2016 at 9:26 pm #

    Wanted to see them for the longest time

  7. Michael June 20, 2016 at 9:28 pm #

    Been waiting to see them for the longest time. Yes.

  8. Jessica June 21, 2016 at 8:46 am #

    My boyfriend fosters kittens and volunteers to help re-home dozens of cats every year. He deserves a fun night out. I think that we’d both really have a great time at this show!

  9. Rosanna gill June 21, 2016 at 11:51 am #

    Id like to win because I saw this on the marquee of the Aladdin theater and was joking about how I’d go if they really WERE cats, and it turns out they are. My 9 year old might die if I passed up the opportunity.

  10. Jenny June 21, 2016 at 12:20 pm #


  11. Lucy June 21, 2016 at 12:25 pm #

    I’d like to attend because: cats.

  12. Rebecca June 21, 2016 at 12:27 pm #

    Because my avid cat friend is in town and has never seen anything like this. Because cats are so much better and deserve more stage time than dogs. Because I have feline DNA and need more community. Please send us!

  13. ryan June 21, 2016 at 12:38 pm #

    Lucy above probably deserves to win, given her spot on response, but for the sake of funsies, me, me, me! Why? Because I love cats.

  14. Celia June 21, 2016 at 12:38 pm #

    I just saw a video of The Rock Cats yesterday and thought to myself: my dad would die of happiness if he could see this. If I won tickets I would take him in a heartbeat!

  15. Corrina June 21, 2016 at 12:40 pm #

    I want to see the acro cats!!! I have missed them every time they are in town.

  16. Matt and Dana June 21, 2016 at 12:40 pm #

    Cats are our lives, we need to see Buggles the skateboarding cat to breathe life!

  17. lyndsay mcneff June 21, 2016 at 12:47 pm #

    this is the cutest thing i have ever seen. my life would be complete if i could see this. cats cats catssss

  18. Lauren M. June 21, 2016 at 12:53 pm #

    My daughter would love to go! Yay cats!

  19. Aryn June 21, 2016 at 12:53 pm #

    How wouldn’t this be an amazing show? Acrobatic cats. stop.

  20. Jamie June 21, 2016 at 1:00 pm #

    Oh. My word. Some friends saw this show a year or two ago and I’ve been obsessed ever since. Even though walking out the door in Portland basically guarantees you’re going to meet like 5 cats a day, cats playing drums and doing backflips across a stage is not as common. <3

  21. Anna June 21, 2016 at 1:05 pm #

    Its a little bit amazing how many texts I get from friends every day within the theme of amazing cats -I’d love to attend this to take my own pics to show them!

  22. Garbanzo June 21, 2016 at 1:07 pm #

    I know a couple people who would LOVE to see this show! I mean…who wouldn’t???

  23. Sara Oftedahl June 21, 2016 at 1:08 pm #

    Haha! This event sounds really amazing! I mean cats are cool but cats that play music!!! Wha, what? I would love to attend this show mostly out of curiosity!! And because it sounds like a blast!! ❤️ Me, me, pick me!!!

  24. Phil Tropist June 21, 2016 at 1:12 pm #

    My girlfriend told me all about these cats. Super funny that a person has trained them to be a rolling show. It would be fun to see.

  25. Alyssa June 21, 2016 at 1:12 pm #

    You’ve cat to be kitten me right meow!

  26. Garbanzo June 21, 2016 at 1:13 pm #

    Seriously? Just seeing what these cats would actually do would be fun. Who WOULDN’T want to see that? On stage just to see if they can be wrangled would be fun enough. Me please?

  27. Hilary P June 21, 2016 at 1:16 pm #

    My favorite brave mouse pointed me in the direction of this Purrfect Entertainment!

  28. steph June 21, 2016 at 1:21 pm #

  29. Rae June 21, 2016 at 1:25 pm #

    Ah! My sister and I have always wanted to go see these cats but we can never afford it! Would LOVE to win!

  30. Sarah Cole June 21, 2016 at 1:41 pm #

    I have wanted to see the acrocats for years I just have never been able to afford to. I would love to win, cats bring me so much joy and are my favorite animal! Seeing this show would be a dream come true, really!

  31. Dave G. June 21, 2016 at 1:42 pm #

    Pop rock cousins of thei punkier Aggro-cats!

  32. Kim P June 21, 2016 at 1:48 pm #

    MEOW MEOW! Pick MEOW!!!

  33. Alex Kennedy June 21, 2016 at 2:05 pm #

    These tickets would make an amazing gift for my eight year old birthday I couldn’t afford to take her otherwise
    what a treat!!

    • Alex Kennedy June 21, 2016 at 2:06 pm #

      That should read “my 8 yr olds bday” as in my kiddo :)

  34. Scott Landia June 21, 2016 at 2:09 pm #

    Cats invented makeup. The Egyptians used to paint their faces to match cat gods.
    Yay cats!

  35. Petra June 21, 2016 at 2:12 pm #

    MORE KITTY!!!!!!!!!!

  36. Michelle Blake June 21, 2016 at 2:20 pm #

    My three year old daughter would would go insane if she saw this. It’s all about kitties at this age. :)

  37. Emily Markewitz June 21, 2016 at 2:30 pm #

    I have got to see this!

  38. Brandi Anderson June 21, 2016 at 2:55 pm #

    I would love to see this! It sounds so fun!

  42. Jessica June 21, 2016 at 3:34 pm #


  43. Angela June 21, 2016 at 3:55 pm #

    Oh my goodness! I had no idea. I must go!

  44. Keisar Betancourt June 21, 2016 at 4:17 pm #

    ZOMG CATS! I’ve had them most of my life.

  45. sheldon June 21, 2016 at 4:24 pm #

    Mirth. So much mirth.

  46. Elise June 21, 2016 at 4:39 pm #

    I learned about this performance because I was hired by Willamette Week to make art for an article about the Acrocats. After spending hours drawing cats juggling and jumping through hoops, I’m really inspired to see the real deal!!!! All my cat does is sleep and mean mug me, whereas these cats are clearly ballerz.

  47. Jill scheintal June 21, 2016 at 4:46 pm #

    I have lived with cars my whole life until several years ago, when I could no longer find apartments to afford where I could have one. I just got a 30% rent increase, so cat adoption is even further away! I’d LOVE to see this show! It would make me and my son so happy!

  48. Adriane C June 21, 2016 at 4:59 pm #

    How delighted I was to discover that “The Amazing Acro-cats” is in fact a cat show! I feared it was a human musical group. I would love to win tickets to see cats play!

  49. Elina Lim June 21, 2016 at 5:12 pm #

    Deep inside me I feel sage
    to see cats performing on a stage.
    Jumping through hoops
    and clawing through loops.
    I look forward to the fact,
    that this show will be better than that
    of ‘Cat in the Hat’ from 2003.

  50. Miranda T. June 21, 2016 at 5:58 pm #

    I am going to win these and take a hipster date to the postminimalist meowave show. Rowr!

  51. KC Andrew June 21, 2016 at 9:01 pm #

    My daughter DESERVES these tickets, so she and her friend Lori can wallow in cat-talent.

  52. Brittanie McGurk June 21, 2016 at 11:32 pm #

    I’ve been wanting to see this forever!

  53. Jonathan lloud June 22, 2016 at 10:06 am #

    What? How am I only finding out about this now! First the cat painting at the museum and now this. Oh Portland.

  54. Robert June 22, 2016 at 11:02 am #

    This would be a perfect for my daughter!

  55. Sonya June 22, 2016 at 2:52 pm #

    I would love to surprise my guy with this. We both love cats!

  56. Ryan June 22, 2016 at 4:44 pm #

  59. Erin June 22, 2016 at 8:59 pm #

    I want to go because I am a cat and I would be enthralled to watch other felines do their funky thing

  60. Heather June 22, 2016 at 11:06 pm #

    Pick me, pick me! Pretty please? (My 10 yr old wants to go but I don’t want to spend the ~$50 for 2 tickets!)

  61. Jenna June 23, 2016 at 9:10 am #

    Pick me, please!

  62. Aleks June 23, 2016 at 12:38 pm #

    How funny! Cats in a band? Got to see it!

  63. Nestor Flores June 23, 2016 at 1:47 pm #

    Tix please so I can take my cat lady.

  64. Heather June 23, 2016 at 2:10 pm #

    Yes please.

  65. Emily June 23, 2016 at 3:01 pm #

    Um, this show is obviously the point of life. Boyfriend and I would love nothing more! My cat themed purse, wallet, socks, and pins would be happy.

  66. Jennie June 23, 2016 at 3:01 pm #

    Everyone knows the best way to celebrate the start of summer is with a cat circus!!

  67. Clay Walsh June 23, 2016 at 3:01 pm #

    “It’s great, we loved it, it was better than Cats on Broadway!” (Pick me, pick me! I am dying to see this purr-formance!)

  68. Verena Coury June 23, 2016 at 3:12 pm #

    When I think of cats I always visualize them holding a french filter-less cigarette in one paw, the other paw resting on the base of a fine crystal glass of Merlot, eyes half-closed gazing into space.
    I am a cat whisperer and I deserve to go!

  69. Karen Gillis June 23, 2016 at 3:29 pm #

    Cats rocking out would be so much fun!

  70. Cheryl June 23, 2016 at 3:48 pm #

    Kitties playing- yes please!

  71. Marissa June 23, 2016 at 4:18 pm #

    You’ve got to be kitten me right meow! How did I not know about this?!

  72. Jeff June 23, 2016 at 5:00 pm #

    Acro-cats will make me puma pants!

  73. Jennifer Phillips June 23, 2016 at 5:01 pm #

    I want to attend because my husband loves watching cats to the point where he rewinds funny cat clips from America’s Funniest Home Videos over and over again, subjecting myself and our 5-year-old to them more times than we need to see them. He clearly enjoys watching cats. Also, the 5-year-old would love it.

  74. Meredith June 23, 2016 at 5:18 pm #

    My man HATES cats! This sounds great!

  75. Victoria Gantz June 23, 2016 at 5:20 pm #

    So many deserving people! But, please pick me!

  76. Maureen A. June 23, 2016 at 6:34 pm #

    I’ve rrad about the Acro-cats but have never had the opportunity to see the show. Please pick me!

  77. steadycat June 23, 2016 at 6:40 pm #

    this kitty looks indifferent but is secretly intrigued by the possibilities…..

  78. Jess June 23, 2016 at 6:48 pm #

    A cat lady’s perfect date night! This should be interesting!

  79. Melissa Collins June 23, 2016 at 6:59 pm #

  81. Matthew June 23, 2016 at 8:38 pm #


  82. Elizabeth June 23, 2016 at 9:42 pm #

    I just had to rehouse my cats ;((
    I could no longer keep them where I live. My son was so sad he cried. We would be so happy to see this show!! Make our day!! :))

    My daughter is trying to convince her dad to let her get a cat. This would help her argument, since cats are so awesome!!!

  86. marc g June 24, 2016 at 7:14 am #
