Everyone loves watching cats in online videos but it turns out they're a big hit in person too. The joint performances of the 'Acro-cats' and the 'Rock Cats' were such a hit that the National Pastime Theater in Chicago added additional shows.

The band, made up of Annie on guitar, Dakota on drums, Nue on keyboards, Sookie on chimes, and the only non-cat member Gregory Peck -- a chicken --  on the tambourine. Almost all of the cats are from shelters and the trainer, Samantha Martin, prepares them for tricks as well as maneuvering emergency situations.
