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.

Purrcast made our first Patreon Milestone goal of $15 per Podcast! The aim of the goal was to donate 1/3 of the money raised after basic production costs are met. To celebrate reaching this goal so quickly we are donating all the January pledges to Underground Railroad Rescued Kitty Network. URRKN coordinates and recruits for individual relay transportation for rescued kitties from the foster homes to their forever homes. Our first Patreon and URRKN driver Ed Rosen chose to donate with out any reward and we wanted to thank him and the good work of URRKN. Posie, Flissy, Val and Nora we have something very special coming up for you as a thank you for your patronage. You dear listener can always support the podcast at https://www.patreon.com/purrcast.

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.

If you like cats and Purrcast consider donating to us through our patreon http://www.patreon.com/purrcast. Patreon lets us say thanks and present little extras to our supporters. Having our cats pay their own room and board by being on a podcast would be living the dream.
