The Amazing Acro-Cats, a troupe of cats that perform in a traveling variety show, are a smash hit all over the U.S.
This troupe is more than just kitty entertainment. Samantha Martin, founder of Acro-Cats, told the Huffington Post, “The team [of cats] themselves are all former rescues and strays." In 2009, Martin went to a shelter in Chicago and was told that kittens were in desperate need of foster homes. She took twelve, and found all of them new homes. Martin has saved more than 200 cats over the past several years.
