Trained Cat

Posted by B. Thomas (Arlington, Texas, United States) on 16 June 2017 in Animal & Insect.

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.

I hope Rocky is in training to become even more famous than he already is, and try a few of these moves. A superb action shot. 5*

@Shaun: Oh, he is! He is just so fast I can't seem to capture the action. ;-)) Thanks!

Interestingly enough, last week I read about training cats to jump through a hoop. Now I know it is possible.
