It is often said that the internet runs on cats. And while there are probably thousands of adorable cat memes, pictures, and videos online, one intrepid cat lover realized there was one thing missing from the internet: a website that plays a continuous loop of a cat purring. Thankfully, that cat lover is also a web developer and has created the purrfect website for cat lovers.
Purrli is being dubbed as the internet’s cat, and is as simple in its execution as it is in the idea. According to Vice Magazine, Purrli was created by sound engineer Dr. Stéphane Pigeon, who originally had the idea after building a sound generator online back in 2015.
“The sound of a purring cat is one of the most comforting sounds available and can help soothe and calm you down when you’re feeling stressed,” Dr. Pigeon says on his website. “Naturally, it’s not just the sound that is important, but it’s also the presence of the warm cuddly cat. Purrli tries to recreate both the sound and the presence of your very own virtual cat through a custom sound engine modeled after real purrs.”
With some cat fanatics saying that a cat’s purr is scientifically proven to help relieve stress or bring happiness, one thing’s for sure: The website’s calming cat purr will be ideal for anyone with a serious feline allergy.
