It’s been a stressful few weeks for us at CatSynth. Not bad per se, just stressful. During times like this, I often lie down to reduce psychic entropy and practice disintegration of thought. And Sam Sam is often lying down next to me.
Like most cats, Sam Sam is quite good at napping. One might even say she is an “expert sleeper”, but that might cause confusion with one of the modular-synth manufacturers we sometimes feature. She does have her own unique way of curling up, though, pull her tail close to her head and sometimes even grabbing it with her paw. It’s adorable, and it never fails to make me smile.
She enjoys the soft blankets, either the burgundy or gray. But she almost always chooses the same corner of the bed. This is not surprising, as all of us at CatSynth are creatures of habit.
We hope you all have a relaxing and enjoyable weekend. For us, it will be a bit stressful once again, but with very focused study and practice on both the technological and musical fronts. But I will do my best to keep Sam Sam’s example in mind as I work through it. We can learn much from our cats!
Here is Sam Sam being silly with her favorite toy.
We see her in this pose a lot, with or without the sock.
She parades around CatSynth HQ like she owns the place.
(She may not be the owner according to the City and County of San Francisco, but she is the queen of the house.)
“Ready for my close-up!”
And now, for a nap…
It’s good to be the cat. 😺
It’s not unusual for Luna to spend most of her day napping in sun puddles, but it’s a rare occasion when I get do so as well. This month has been rewarding but also exhausting, with work, the Portland trip, multiple shows and sundry other events and obligations. Fortunately, this weekend is largely free and thus a good time to rest as well as attend to health and home. And of course to spend time with Luna.
The Carnival of the Cats will be up this Sunday at Mind of Mog.
And the Friday Ark is at the modulator.
Luna can usually be found in the morning enjoying the sunshine on one of the dining-area chairs, often underneath the glass surface of the table. It does look warm and relaxing.
If only we could all have mornings like this.
The blog has been even more cat-centric than usual this week, but I notice no one is complaining. Nonetheless, we have some music and art reviews coming up soon.

For today’s Weekend Cat Blogging, we see Luna enjoying a nap:
It seems like she has been resting a lot lately. It’s been cold, it’s been dark, she is probably channeling some of my own fatigue, and of course she is a cat.
We were briefly jolted yesterday by a 4.1-magnitude earthquake in the Bay Area. It was relatively long, but still quite mild. Luna was on alert though, her ears pointing straight up and her eyes growing exceptionally wide. She did not run for cover, though.
