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!

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.

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!
