Most people think cats can’t be trained, and they’re usually right. However,¬†Samantha Martin, has started the Acro-Cats, a circus troupe of cats that perform all over the country and have even performed in a Target commercial.

Martin’s first traveling animal circus, “The Amazing Acro-Rats,” specialized in rodents.

“I couldn’t make a living on just rats,” she says. So about a decade ago, she¬†switched to cats. “People started showing up in droves.”

The cats travel ten months out of the year in a 35-foot bus customized for their comfort. The next time the Acro-Cats come to town, be sure to catch their show and see that cats really can be trained just as long as you’re willing to do all the hard work.
