Amazing Acro-Cats on WGN Radio


Samantha Martin demonstrates that cats can rock ‘n roll like no one’s business, the Amazing Acro-Cats HERE on WGN Radio.

Martin and I explain how cats and I suggest that cats are actually creative.

You can train your own cats at home, and we explain how. So many benefits to training cats, for one thing it stimulates their lives.

The cat news is that Kit Jagger wouldn’t get up early enough in the morning to do the show, but Albacore Tuna and Ahi Tuna showed up for the radio gig.

It’s the Tuna brothers

Martin travels with the Cat Mobile across the nation, performing from city to city, and always some of the proceeds of each show helps out a local shelter.

We discuss how on October 21, we celebrated Cures 4 Cats Day, of the Winn Feline Foundation. The Winn Feline Foundation is celebrating 50 years of funding cat health studies worldwide. Much of what we know about cats was once funded by Winn, from today’s treatment for diabetes (different than what it was about five years ago), to vaccines cats receive, to understanding the diseases they get those vaccines for, to when we should spay or neuter kittens, to decreasing ringworm in catteries and shelters, and more. The list goes on and on. In celebration of five decades, you can download a free book: 50 Years of Advancing Feline Medicine: Helping Every Cat Every Day.

You can support the future of all animals in the care of CACC by attending the Big Night benefit on October 25 at the Chicago Cultural Center, 78 E. Washington St. (at Michigan Ave) in the Preston Bradley Hall, hosted by Friends of Chicago Animal Care and Control.

Patterned after the film, 16 culinary stars provide lavish food, among the best chefs in town led by Jackie Chen. There will be four bars to serve libations. Some drinks will be throwbacks, to go just right with the live Sinatra-era music by Carmello Zaccone & Lori London.

This year’s honorary chair will be author of the various underwater dog books, Seth Casteel, who will sign copies. Other celebs attending will be TV’s Chicago Fire star Christian Stolte and star of Downward Dog, Lucas Neff. Paul Lisnek of WGN-TV and CLTV will be there. And I will serve as emcee.

You can win two tickets to see the Stephen Colbert show live in New York in the raffle, or a “gourmet getaway” to Michigan for 10 people during the live auction.

It’s fun. It’s tax deductible. And, it’s a great way to help Chicago’s homeless pets. Pay $120 in advance HERE.
