Lightroom: If I use CC and classic together, are they using one catalog?

I seem to have a few different catalogs when I open Lightroom CC or Lightroom CC Classic. There are 5 different versions of a catalog with a -2 after the name for Classic. When I add new photos to CC, I cannot see them in Classic. Is my catalog supposed to be only one catalog? Or are they designed to use different catalogs?

Lightroom CC and Lightroom Classic use separate catalogs. If you add an image to Lightroom CC, you need Lightroom mobile sync enabled in Classic for it to sync to the Lightroom cloud and pull down its copy of the original file.
