Pad Kee Meow

Cirque Du Sewer - The acrobat with afro-rats…and a confused cat. Melissa Arleth has been performing on stages since her community theatre debut at the age of 11. In 2009 she traveled to the San Francisco Circus Center, where she enrolled in the Clown Conservatory, endured mild torture at the hands of Chinese acrobats, and learned slack rope walking.

In 2015, the first feline member, Pad Kee Meow, was added to the show and quickly became more beloved by the audience than Melissa and the rats combined.

A superb image. I wonder if Rocky can do that, I bet he can.

@Shaun: Ha, ha. Rocky just does what Rocky wants to do. However, he has ME trained to do what he wants me to do. ;-)

It is very difficult to raise a cat, bravo to the artist and to you for the photo

Je n'aime pas les animaux dressés, laissons leur vivre une vie à leur bon gré !... )

@tataray: She did tell us that her animals are rescued from a bad life - lab rats and a stray cat. They seemed very happy and well cared for, so I do think they would choose life with her.

Pad Kee Meow must be searching for the rat to go after. :-)
