These talented kitty cats are traveling the USA in their very own tour bus with their very own sold-out shows.

They’re flexible and they’re felines. They’re musicians and they’re meowtastic.

Originating in Chicago, Circus Cats consists of a dream team of felines. Ten felines make up the Acro-Cats, a team of agility-trained furballs whose leaps and balances dare to impress. The Rock Cats are five meowsicians who strum a guitar with no heed to cadence and tap a cowbell with no care to rhythm.

The Acro-Cats and Rock Cats team up to bring entertainment to cities across the nation, cruising from venue to venue in a cat-themed tour bus.

Patrons are permitted to take photos at will and can even go on stage after the show to meet the stars. But there are some crotchety feline geezers who don’t want their photo taken!

Tuna, the white cat who collects tips, is one such cantakerous kitty. As band manager, she keeps the group in line while adding “more cowbell” when you least expect it.

The felines have been featured on Animal Planet, strutting across television with circus stunts and meowsicality.

Entertainment aside, these cats showcase the level of intelligence in today’s domesticated cats. Additionally, they are ambassadors for homeless animals as the cast is made up of rescued pets.

Many of the felines have their own Twitter accounts, in case you’re lucky enough to catch a show and take a liking to one band member or acrobat–acrocat–in particular. Bios of the individual kitties are also listed on the website, and they are a definite must-read.
