The -r in car is being trilled here, which can sound a little strange until you are used to it.

No. The amount of trill varies between people quite a bit, though.

No. The voice says the sentence as written.

Yes, 'a red cat' is cath goch.

Edit - sorry, I missed your point. Yes, thinking you heard * cath coch should raise a doubt about whether you heard correctly or not - either you misheard something or the speaker made a mistake.
