    All cats are attention seekers, but how far will they go? Too far, apparently.

    E7. the great disappearing act

    In this week's episode we discuss why "my cats were hiding from me" is a perfectly valid excuse for being late.

    E6: cat hair and mispronounciation

    This week's episode is full of cats. Get your lint rollers ready, that's a lot of hair! 

    We cover the murder of Shirley Duguay and crime fighting kitty cat that saves the day. This case added a new avenue to forensic hair examination, but how useful is it in day to day investigations?

More of a dog person

Gotta say I’m more of a dog person but that won’t stop you from listening to this podcast, I really enjoyed listening to this, it’s easy go along with the story and It’s not scattered like some podcasts are when talking about murder cases. 100% recommended

So good!!

This podcast is incredible. Jess has the voice of an angel and the subject matter is so fascinating! I love the fact that she’s actually a forensic scientist so she truly knows what she’s talking about. I also love the banter between her and her kitties, it’s adorably endearing and very relatable. Go check out this podcast, you definitely won’t regret it!!

Nah.

I tried and tried and just couldn’t get into it. I’m a cat lover and still found the intro unnecessarily long and not natural. I understand the transition into proving “humans are worse” but everything felt forced and I had lost interest by the time she actually reached the point. I’ll continue listening to my other podcasts.
