It’s not Broadway, but it is musical cats

Rescue cats are coming to Renton; not to homes, but to the stage.

The Acro-Cats with the Rock Cats are coming to town Tuesday, May 21 through Thursday, May 23. Using a positive reinforcement training method, the cats have toured the nation, riding skateboards, performing the record-longest cat leap and playing music.

Animal trainer Samantha Martin has rescue cats and has found homes for 220 homeless cats and kittens, according to a press release.

The finale includes Tuna and the Rock Cats, who play guitar, drums, keyboard, cowbell, woodblock, trumpet and saxophone. The band also performed at the 2019 Puppy Bowl halftime.

The only all-cat band in the known universe will perform for three nights next week at the Carco Theatre, 1717 Maple Valley Highway in Renton. More information and tickets are available at
