‘My Cat’s Tale’ is a podcast where we can share the stories of our cats, what they are like, who they love, where they came from, and more. Every week, Ewan Spence will meet cats and their owners to talk about their lives together. Where did they first meet? What do they like doing? Why this cat? Why this human? All that and more in a friendly half hour where the only focus is our shared love of cats.
