As a judge on “America’s Got Talent,” Simon Cowell has seen some pretty amazing acts come in to audition. However, it’s safe to say that he has never seen one quite like this!
Svetlana and Marina are a mother daughter duo who have spent years training their cats to do incredible stunts. As soon as they took the stage, the notoriously difficult to please Simon seemed skeptical that they would actually be able to do a good job.
The judges were stunned as they watched the cats perform death-defying leaps, swing from poles and jump through hoops. This really is like Cirque du Soleil for cats!
Simon explained afterwards exactly why this was so impressive compared to acts involving dogs.
“You know why that was so impressive? Because dogs want to please,” he said. “Cats are like, ‘Make me.’ They had sort of like ‘cattitude.’ I think there’s a gap in the market for this. I thought with my dogs sometimes, it’s like I want to take them out and see a show and this is a show I can take them to.”
Judge Heidi Klum was also very impressed, joking about the natural behavior of cats afterwards.
“Obviously I am also very impressed. I used to have a cat and even if I would call her name, she wouldn’t even come inside of the house,” she said.
