CatSynth Pic: Shadow and Brodie

Remember our pals Shadow and Brodie? Well, we have another photo of them honing electronic music skills. Via Shadow’s Facebook page.

Sadly, Shadow passed away in February. This is heartbreaking news, and our thoughts and condolences go out to his humans, as well as his feline brother who must miss him dearly.

CatSynth Pic: Pearl


Remember Pearl?  She was a foster synth cat living with frequent contributor Anne Corwin.  But she is a foster no more, as stated in this Instagram post.

Well, this one is officially our first foster fail. Welcome to the family, Pearl! #blackcatsofinstagram #catsynth#kittensofinstagram

Congratulations to Pearl on her new home.  We look forward to more CatSynth Pics 😺

CatSynth Pic: DJ Pearl

Meet “DJ Pearl”, an adorable foster kitten who lives with Shadow and Brodie (whom we met a few weeks ago).  She even has the same affinity for playing the M-Audio Axiom keyboard as Shadow.  Submitted by Anne Corwin via our Facebook page.

Introducing Shadow’s tiny assistant, foster kitten DJ PEARL! She is ready to rock…and looking for her forever family!

Pearl seems so sweet and charming, and we suspect she will end up as a “foster fail” 😻
