I love the bass+synth disco thing they have going in this track. Oh, and the cats, too
The recent New York trip officially came to an end when I brought Luna home on Thursday. Changing locations is always a bit disorienting for her, but she quickly readjusted to her familiar home surroundings. She has also been very attached, looking for every opportunity to cuddle in my lap or at least sit next to me.
Yes, I do need to finish unpacking. It’s actually been quite busy since I returned, including a late-night gig with Surplus 1980 on Thursday and a show tonight with Reconnaissance Fly in Sacramento. But after that things calm down quite a bit. So we will have a proper but belated celebration for Luna’s birthday next week. Meanwhile, she is getting all the comfort and cuddles I can provide.
Finally, a sad note. We were heartbroken last week to hear about the passing of our friend Tillie. Tillie was from the kitty clan in Nova Scotia that also shared Mickey with us, and their mom has been one of our big supporters here at CatSynth. We often noted back and forth how much Tillie and Luna looked alike. We send the whole family our deepest sympathies for their loss.
And we’re back, with more cats and synths!

“Carmel, our Bengal kitty-cat with her Doepfer Mixtur-Trautonium…We have a deal that she only chews the grey cables, not the blue or the red.”
Luna officially turns 9 years old today. At moments like this, it certainly does seem that time flies by too quickly. Unfortunately, we are not able to celebrate together as I am still in New York, but we certainly will do so when I get home.
Please join me in wishing Luna a very Happy Birthday!

This might be one of the creepiest things we have ever posted here on CatSynth
I am currently in New York, which means Luna is currently at her usual boarding place.
She adjusted to her surroundings fairly quickly. It is probably somewhat familiar as we have been boarding Luna here for most of my time in San Francisco. And the staff knows her and will probably be spoiling her while I’m gone.
They do make sure to provide one of her favorite rooms along the kitchen hallway, where she can see the human activity from a high perch just like at home.
I am currently focused on this trip, which should be an interesting one. But I do always look forward to being reunited with Luna when I return home.

There are times when I envy Luna’s ability to just relax.
After several weeks of hyper-activity and a bit of tumult, we are enjoying a quiet weekend at home, with plenty of sun puddles.
I of course have quite a few things to do – preparing for my annual New York trip and getting out a couple of gig reports for this site – but time with Luna is definitely a priority.
