THANKSGIVING CATBLOGGING….The stars of this year’s traditional Thanksgiving clipart extravaganza are Ditto and Tillamook, my mother’s two new kittens. I was over the other day visiting, and let me tell you: these are definitely not a shy pair of kittens. Ditto practically knocks down the furniture running over to greet visitors, and starts purring like a motorboat if you so much as look at him crosseyed. Tillie was in nap mode most of the time I was there, but is also friendly and adorable, as all kittens should be.

The pod they’re sleeping in was a housewarming gift from me. Ten bucks at Walgreens. Isn’t it cute? When I got it home, though, it turned out that Domino and Inkblot both thought it was for them, with Domino eventually claiming it as her permanent nighttime bed. What could I do? Back to Walgreens for another one, that’s what. As you can see, the dynamic duo love it too when they’ve decided they’ve had enough dynamism for the time being.

Like them, I’m dreaming of turkey right now. In fact, I can almost taste it already. Happy Thanksgiving, everyone!

Dear Reader,

This feels like the most important fundraising drive since I've been CEO of Mother Jones, with staggeringly high stakes and so much uncertainty. In "News Is Just Like Waste Management," I try to unpack the reality we all face and how we can rise to the challenge. If you're able to, this is a critical moment to support Mother Jones’ nonprofit journalism: We need to raise $400,000 to help cover the vital reporting projects we have planned, and right now is no time to pull back.
