At the rate things are progressing in the BitTorrent community, it wouldn’t be a surprise if someone launches a torrent tracker for cats. Thankfully, CatTorrent has nothing to do with cats. On the contrary, it’s an underrated private tracker that tracks lots of audiobooks and e-books. CatTorrent should not be mistaken for an E-learning tracker – it mostly indexes fiction and doesn’t have much educational content. In a world populated by thousands of general trackers, it’s really great to see the likes of CatTorrent around – if you love audiobooks/e-books, public registrations are open right now.


There aren’t many sites similar to CatTorrent out there. Two torrent trackers that come to mind are My Anonamouse (Open via IRC Recruitment) and MakeGreatMusic. With MakeGreatMusic shutting down for good, the demand for CT probably went even higher. Some of you may never have heard about it but CT is not one of those isolated, ghost town of a tracker. The site tracks over 3600 torrents and has an active user base in excess of 2600 members.

As for the content, CatTorrent mainly tracks E-Books (in PDF, LIT and TXT formats) and Audiobooks. There are some good E-book collection torrents available, in addition to individual book downloads. CT probably has one of the largest audiobook libraries in a BT tracker with over 3000 torrents indexed under this category.

CatTorrent torrents

Download speeds are generally good on CT with some torrents (ones with an animated blue icon next to them) hosted on seedboxes. There is no use talking about pre times as this tracker mostly has non scene uploads. A seed bonus system also exists.

If you want to get hold of a CatTorrent account, it’s pretty easy. Signups are currently open. Be sure to read the rules before you start using the site, as always.

    thanks for this will be joining soon I hope

    site seems to be loading very slow for me. Have not gotten to sign-up yet. Anyone else have any issues?

  2. chron // 10/23/2009 07:28:00 PM  

    tried to login with my recovered account details and used the password I received and kept getting login failed

    and now my ip is banned

  3. sun // 10/23/2009 08:56:00 PM  

    having same issue. Like the idea

  4. sun // 10/23/2009 09:01:00 PM  

    I seeem to have gotten through the reistration process, got the confirmation email, but keep getting the IE black page therafter.

    Like the idea of the site, but given the shoddy coding, seems like a waste of time trying to register

  5. Deb // 10/23/2009 11:07:00 PM  

    I managed to sign up but whenever I try searching for something,it looks like it's searching but then I get an error page like the site timed-out!!! Actually,what it says,in my preferred browser(Opera),is-Error! Connection closed by remote server. In Firefox,it just says network time-out. In Explorer,it says Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage. This looks like another site I could really like if it would work!!!!

    I made it to the sign up page only once and then couldn't submit the information. This is exactly the type of torrent site I was looking for. I really need something to replace demonoid for my ebooks.

    This is a great site for audio books and ebooks, I've been a member for a little while now.

    I believe the reason new registers are having issues is that the site is currently moving to a new server. The recent surge of new registrations is probably just bogging down the old server, I would just recommend everyone to be patient, you'll be glad you did.

  8. That Little Voice Inside Me // 10/24/2009 05:57:00 AM  

    I can't seem to get the page to load :( I love to read and am quite disappointed that I can't get in.

  9. Zan5hin // 10/26/2009 11:20:00 AM  

    Thanks. I am already on My Anonmouse and I know this is a torrent site but if you like audiobooks there is a site that has rapidshare type links:

    The current user account limit (3,000) has been reached. Inactive accounts are pruned all the time, please check back again later..."

    Spookmaster is probably right about why everyone's having trouble getting on. They are changing hosts, in fact uploading has been turned off for the time being because of the move. I get overloaded server messages all the time. It will likely improve after the move. Keep trying!

    The site is still slow for everyone due to the move to a new server.

  16. pj // 11/15/2009 11:03:00 AM  

    Please be patient, after a successful move to the new server which was to be faster, CT was the victim of a DoS attack. They are working hard to resolve this and hope to be fully functional again sometime in the next week or so.

    It is a great site and a friendly community.

  17. Steve // 11/23/2009 08:19:00 PM  

    As of today (11-22-2009) the site is back online and seems OK.

  18. Deb // 11/27/2009 09:36:00 AM  

    It's not working again!!!

  19. IT // 11/29/2009 10:05:00 AM  

    DNS does not even resolve for anymore? :(

    Very sad if they are completely gone since MGM went offline earlier in the fall. That leaves only Anonamouse as an audiobook go-to place.

  20. ariinya // 12/04/2009 04:53:00 AM  

    Don't count out yet. They have had some problems including a DOS attack from a Chinese porn site on their new server! That server refused to assist them and they had to move servers once again. Things are currently resolving and membership should be reopening in the near future.

    Just so everyone knows, Cattorrent has a new address:

  22. gordonio // 4/12/2010 08:35:00 AM  

    Thanks to commenter "Steve" for the new website address I have been vainly looking for for the past 2 months!
