Brace Yourself for Adorableness: A Cat Circus is Coming

We live under the assumption that cats defy training. That they are instinctively ambivalent to our desires. But that ain't true, and should I know, because I've seen the mother effin' Acro-Cats.

This traveling crew of renegade rescue felines not only performs tricks, but does them on stage in front of live audiences. Bell ringing? Done. Skateboarding? Totally handled. Tight rope walking? Yep, that too. How about playing in a rock band? Yes, but the music is better categorized as "loose jazz."

Trained by manager, kitty rescue advocate and girl in cat costume, Samantha Martin, this mischievous team of furballs perform to sold-out audiences all over the U.S. They're stopping in Fort Worth from this Thursday to Sunday at the Stage West Theatre (821 W. Vickery Blvd.), so you need to buy a ticket right now. (Did I mention there's a chicken who plays the cymbals named Hendia Jones?)
