I heard about the traveling cat circus and cat rock band from the Trashy Diva blog. After that I was hooked like a feline on catnip!!!
The Acro-Cats and Rock Cats are truly an amazing, exciting, and fun show!!! Just like the title of this post, the show was amazing, fantastic and incredible! It was the best show I've seen in a long long long long time! The Acro-cats were amazing. They rode on skateboards, jumped through hoops, jumped through smaller hoops, balanced on balls, balanced on balls while walking, scaled ropes, pushed tiny shopping carts, leaped through the air from platform to platform on command over 6 feet in the air, weaved in and out between rods, even played a little bowling. It really was THAT amazing! And there were cats, cats everywhere on the stage!!!! I was truly in crazy cat lady heaven!!!
Then, just when you thought it couldn't get any better than that, the Rock Cats came out. There was a cat playing the chimes, another on the guitar, another on the drums, another on the keyboard, a chicken was playing the tambourine and cymbals, and yet another cat was playing the cow bell! Then there was the cat that sat on the skull thinking the skull was an instrument ;). That makes six cats and one chicken all on stage at the same time performing! My husband leaned over during the show and said to me... "I'm completely over stimulated!" Yep, that was the sentiment perfectly!
If you're in the U.S. and love cats you should definitely check them out... they may just be coming to a town near you. When I first heard about this show from the Trashy Diva blog the show was still something like five months away from being in San Francisco but I marked my calendar and patiently waited for the cats to come. It was completely worth the wait! For those in the area that missed it, never fear! They announced they will be coming back to SF! I'll totally be there again when they come back! This is a show not to be missed!!! Not even for a second viewing! <3

Outfit of the Day:
What would an outing to a traveling cat circus and rock cat band be without cats on a dress? Just not enough cats unless you take some with you!
For this outing I wore my Heart of Haute Matey dress in It's Raining Cats which I recently got from Cats Like Us. You can see my review of this dress here. I paired this dress with a red cardigan, black burlesque-esque type striped tights, and black flats. I also wore my black cat earrings which you can't really see too well in the pictures.
