Episode 21 Momcat Lady Jean Grey Kranz


This is the first audio feature with Momcat Lady Jean Grey Kranz. She came to purrcast with kittens as a foster named Marine which was shortened to just Momcat. Her kittens were easily adopted. We kept her for a little while longer to try and socialize her because we feared her very vocal growling and stubborn ways would get her returned by a timid adopter. A year later it became clear that we had “foster failed” and as a birthday present she was adopted and renamed.

The foster program jokingly called her a Chesapeake Blue because of her silver blue fur and lack of pedigree. Amy wanted to call her Jean Grey after the X-men character and I extended the name to Jean Grey Krantz after NASA flight director Gene Kranz. She still growls if you look at her wrong but the tough street cat has softened and her ever curious nature finds her on top of the cabinets and having fun playing with our friends 4 year old marauding about pillow forts.

Purrcast is run by donations to our Patreon campaign at http://patreon.com/purrcast. As little as dollar a month gets you the super mega extended mix and other fun extras.

Thank you for listening.

Episode 20 Fatty

Fatty Episode 20

This is a special edition of Purrcast. Fatty back in February was diagnosed with a reoccurrence of Feline Vaccine Associated Sarcoma (an aggressive, cancerous tumor) 2 years after having surgically remove the tumor. With gofundme and your help we easily raised money for a second surgery to amputate the affected leg to prevent the tumor from spreading. Fatty is happily still here and purring away. He has adjusted very well to being a tripod and has found ways to snuggle deeper into the cat bed with out that leg getting in the way.

Purrcast isn’t just a podcast, it is a multi platform experience. From our twitter page @purrcast we are going to be doing some Periscope popup recording sessions and showing how the podcast is edited and produced.

Original music in this episode was pulled from a youtube improvised recording of my midified toy squeeze box. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2-13zwBsZnE

Episode 19 Fatty, Wilma and Pig


Cappy and @alyssumpohl are big fans of Purrcast, especially Fatty so I set out to record Fatty for this weeks episode. Wilma and Fatty were snuggling together (they are poor weather friends who use each other for heat) so I pulled out a second microphone and went for a twofer. If you listen carefully Pig is snoring away in the background.

Thank you for listening to Purrcast.

Episode 17 Pig


Purrcast Episode 17 ft Pig.

Listening studiously to so many different cats purring you begin to develop an ear for different purring qualities. Having found Pig on the street as a kitten he always has had stuffy sinuses. You can really hear every breath through his nose, sometimes giving a little whistle.

One of the Purrcast Patreon extras is a short recording of Pig Snoring. Right now we are $1 per episode away from the Patreon milestone goal of giving 1/3 of the Patreon money raised to a local (To Baltimore) animal charity. Do it for the kitties!

Episode 15 Twinkle


This recording is from our foster cat Twinkle’s first night with us. She was a street cat that has a rakish clipped ear from a tag and release program. She had a bad case of mites which had spread to the rest of her head which was scabby and awful looking. As you can hear from the purring she was ecstatic to be getting love, food and shelter (she prefers love). After recovering from an upper respiratory infection she is purring even louder and deeper when she isn’t acting the fool like any 1 year old kitten should. Purrcast will have her back on as a guest soon to compare recordings.
