Now, don't get too excited,
it's different than a
What a Delightful way to Spend a Day! I bet I'm the only person you know who actually went to a CAT CIRCUS! Another first for Bunnikins.
The Amazing AcroCats were in town! So, I decided to check them out. In addition to a Cat Circus with talented kitteh's performing all sorts of tricks, there was a Cat Rock Band!
What more could a person possibly want? (Well, I could name many things, but let's keep the focus on the cats for now.)
I arrived early and when it was time to be seated, I had the BEST seat in the house, front row center, so I had the perfect view of the fun felines.
Here is a video of some of the hightlights of their act. It's from another gig they had a while back. Enjoy.
In this show, they also had a Chicken that did tricks, and rang the symbols, a Groundhog that raised a flag....plus, they actually had 5 trained RATS that ran around the tightropes....they stayed away from the Cats, thankfully!
The first part of the show was the Cat Circus, the second half was the Rock Band
Here the fantastic felines play "Electric Avenue". They looked so cute, esp. the Piano Player. Who does Nue remind you of....any guesses??? ;-)
There are LOTS of other fun video's on the kitties YouTube Channel,
"The Rock Cats" Be sure to watch the feature Video "Stray Cat Strut", has a wonderful compilation of the circus, band, and TV appearances.
The hour flew by, and happily, the fur didn't fly! After the show, people could pose for photo's with the stars, but I didn't bring my camera, because traveling around this city, one might get mugged, and I don't want my camera stolen. They also were selling souvenirs. I passed up the multi-coloured cat ears, and got the compilation DVD instead. Over 2 hours of fun, plus Tuna, the beautiful white cat who rings the bell, stars in a movie.
That should be fun to watch at my leisure.
You can see lots of great pics on the Website. Also, the Trainer, Samantha has another website "Amazing Animals" that lists show times, and has loads of video's and other projects the kitties did. They might be coming to your town....hey hey it's the kitties!
Finally, you have to look at the Main Website www.CircusCats.com
Here you'll find links to the profiles of all the darling kitties! I loved the one named
NUE, click on her icon. It's uncanny how she looks like adorable Kittehkins!
Maybe I can teach her a few tricks, she is very photogenic and a star, I think.
I'm going to follow the training tips Samantha outlined during the show.
Kittehkins already has a snazzy costume, so she's good to go!
All I need is a cute Cat Woman Costume, and a leopard print ear band.
