Purrcast 31 Piglet

This is Purrcast number 31 with the purring sound of Piglet. Despite being our second oldest cat, Piglet is the perpetual kitten of the household. That’s not because of his personality, his attitude is that of a grumpy old man. It’s partially his looks, the round face and disheveled fluffy fur, and partially because he was Justin and Amy’s first cat as a couple. Found as a sick kitten on the mean streets of Baltimore, he offset the grumpiness with typical kitten cuteness and impressive ear floofs, convincing us that he was worth both thousands of dollars in vet bills and a loving home despite his tendency to act like a jerk.

One surprising thing about Piglet is that he doesn’t mind most of the foster cats that come through the Purrcast World Headquarters. He may not be happy about them, but as long as no one runs across his head or jumps on him, he isn’t too concerned about who is staying in the guest room.

Piglet is probably our the most prolific of our podcasting purr-ers. He purrs for meals, for nip, for lap times, and bedtime. Bedtime is when he really shows off his purring skills. He sinks into the blankets and turns on the purrs, a steady rumbling with occasional deeper inhales and exhalations of contentment. On top of those he layers a little trill that is probably a result of his permanently stuffed up head. The whole performance can be hypnotic, and produces great audio for ASMR enthusiasts who like a little variety in their purring soundtracks.

As a former street cat, Piglet would like to make sure everyone knows about the Kickstarter campaign for Tuna and the Acrocats. This mobile cat circus/cat band/cat fostering group is in need of a new tour bus so they can thrill and amaze audiences across America while helping place needy cats and kittens in new homes. Their fundraiser is in its last week, so check out their page, pitch in if you’re able, and please spread the word!

?attachment_id=388

This has been purrcast number twenty six, a mini episode featuring the outsized kitten purrs of rupert. Rupert was a purrcast foster from the Baltimore Animal Rescue and Care Shelter BARCS that has found his furever home with a friend of ours. Recording kittens is difficult, not because they aren’t full of purr but because they are wiggly, bitey and run around all the time.

On this National Cat day Purrcast welcomes our new listeners from the Nerdist and international listeners from Australia’s RN Creative Audio Unit.

If you like purring we have a patreon campaign at patreon.com/purrcast. Patreon pays for bandwidth for the podcast, treats for the cats and can has cheese burgers for the humans.

This has been purrcast number 24 showcasing the purring of Pig.

Purrcast would like to say hi to some friends. First up is the Amazing Acro-Cats, the trained cat show and rock band. Purrcast human producer Justin did sound for them in Baltimore and introduced to the high reward @tunathecat to specialty cooked chicken livers from Parts and Labor. The Amazing Acro-Cats helped raise money for the local shelters while visiting Baltimore as well as found new forever homes for the tour foster kittens. http://circuscats.com/

We would also like to give a meow out to the new cats in town The Purrrcast. The Purrrcast spelled with 3 R’s is a podcast about cats by the humans Sara Iyer and Steven Ray Morris. Every week they talk about cats with guest friends.  Look for them where ever you get podcasts.

If you like the cats purring, please consider patronage through patreon.com/purrcast. A few dollars a month buys many treats for the cats. The cats like treats and will purr making everyone happy. Do it for the kitties.

Thank you for listening to the original purrcast.

Purrcast 23 Fatty

Fatty Episode 20

This is Fatty’s morning feed me breakfast purr. The latest school of thought is that there is no canonical lexicon of cat meows, every cat has their own language with their owner that they both made up. It’s like a mutual training or an idioglossia, the language made up by twins. Fatty’s brother spoke with nuance of inflection and trills. Fatty has one word that he uses repeatedly until he gets what he wants. I think he learned to meow from listening to the cadence of the alarm clock. I sometimes try to push the snooze button on his head to make him stop in the mornings. Just like Simon’s Cat Wake Up

You can keep Fatty and the rest of purrcast flush with treats by supporting our patreon.com/purrcast campaign. Patreon is a service where you can be a patron of an artist by pledging money per month or per work. Purrcast loves all of our fans. Here is a meow-out to some of them: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZN2GcIBmEpU
