Purrfect Sounds is a free collection of submitted cat purrs to be downloaded for sound art and/or personal enjoyment. Please make a recording of your cat in a quiet location and email to me. Please send 44.1kHz, 16-bit mono recordings, and I will convert to .mp3 format. Please include the below information. I can include a link to an email or web address. By submitting a sound file you agree to allow anyone to download it and use the file for any purpose.
