If it moves, it dies.

EVERY cat lover knows that a cat's purr is simply divine. But what if, for some reason, there's no cat around to give that therapeutic, melodious sound?
The app myNoise, a white noise and background noise generator, offers a fairly acceptable substitute of the real thing in its purr generator called Furry Friend.
Furry Friend, which can be downloaded on iOS and Android mobile phones, is like a purr machine that can be calibrated to sound like the way a user's real cat purrs. Furry Friend has a default setting, but there are 10 sliders to help users properly adjust the purring sound the way they want it. The personalized purr can be changed, saved and played anytime. However, try not to fall asleep with Furry Friend playing on the background because it will surely drain your phone's battery charge.
Furry Friend by myNoise is the perfect app for ailurophiles, particularly those who are allergic to cats but yearn to hear a cat's purr.
Furry Friend according to myNoise:
Cuddling up with a purring cat is certainly a relaxing experience. Scientific studies have shown that cat owners have lower blood pressure and can live longer than humans who don't own pets!
