 From the Pd Documentation [1]:

"There can be many throw~ objects associated with a single catch~, but a 
throw~ can't talk to more than one catch~.
Send~ just saves a signal which may then be receive~d any number of 
times; but a receive~ can only pick up one send~ at a time (but you can 
switch between send~s if you want.)"
