Our interests in cats, synthesizers and highways come together in this photo featuring Sam Sam checking out my US 101 shield, which I was using as a backdrop for a livestream concert on Saturday.
In this moment of social distancing, Brisket is showing us how to do it right as he completely ignores the Korg Polysix next to him.

Figaro the handsome tuxedo cat sits atop a Moog Subsequent 37 synthesizer, along with a Prophet REV2 from Sequential (Dave Smith Instruments). From yvesanthonylaur via Instagram.
The weeklong takeover by Keith Winstanley and his cats Milo and Jet continues. Today we have Milo sitting comfortably (?) in front of a classic Minimoog Model D.
The Minimoog is a favorite of ours at CatSynth. You can see photos of our own and others here.
Our tuxedo friend is obscuring the label for this keyboard, so we invite readers to identify it.

Of course, every day is National Cat Day (or International Cat Day) here at CatSynth. But we are marking the occasion by letting Sam Sam and Big Merp share their own pics. Above, we see Sam Sam in one of her favorite spots in the studio, in front of the Yamaha TX802 and cassette deck. Sam Sam would also like to share her recent studio video.
And lest Big Merp is left out of the fun, here is a pic of him hanging out behind the main modular synth.
Pinki shows off a Roland TR-909 drum machine. From Edda Jayne Hill via our Facebook page.
Pinki just hit the start button and is seemingly impressed by the outcome 😁
The TR-909 was a commercial failure compared to its predecessor, the TR-808, but it has since become a prized instrument and commands rather high prices. Many friends even celebrate “909 Day” on the 9th of September. Roland has more recently introduced a TR-09 as part of its Boutique series.
Meet Sascha, an adorable tuxedo cat in residence at Space Kitty in Seattle. Looking at their Facebook page, they have a rather impressive collection of synths. This photo only includes some of the rackmount and tabletop instruments, including several classic E-MU 1U modules and offerings from Roland and Korg.

Identification of the synths and other gear in this picture left as an exercise to the reader.
Meet Brisket, an adorable tuxedo cat. Brisket is showing off a Korg MS-20 mini today. You can see more photos on Steve Peglar’s Instagram, embedded below.
I have been intrigued with the MS-20 mini since it came out a couple of years ago. Sure, it’s not the original, but both the smaller size and the modern features like USB+MIDI make it quite attractive. You can see our review from NAMM 2013 here.
