Michael Kleinschmidt's cat, Arizona, uses All Things Considered - along with her Thunder Shirt - to help her relax during afternoon rainstorms. She likes to listen via the WRKF mobile app on his cell phone.
There is a dog who curls up next to the radio for the BBC World Service overnight, and another who prefers to listen to WRKF in the afternoon while lounging in the pool.
There are cats who purr at Elizabeth Eads hosting All Things Considered; a bird that sings the Weekend Edition theme song; a turtle and a lizard who crawl up to an iPad to see environmental news with the WRKF app.
All of them are well-informed members of the animal kingdom because of all that public radio listening.
And they will be drinking from the "I Heart NPR" bowl their families receive as a thank you for their monthly contribution to WRKF.
