Friday Cat Blogging – 14 October 2011

Inkblot has been monopolizing cat blogging lately, so this week is Domino’s turn. Today, she expresses her level of excitement over Inkblot’s run for the presidency. She’s pretty unimpressed, and this might be having an effect: Inkblot’s swagger seems to be going the way of Rick Perry’s. He usually makes a mad dash for the food bowl when dinner time rolls around and gets first crack at the kibble through sheer momentum. But this week he’s been…a little more hesitant. And Domino has actually eaten first a couple of times. Is he losing his edge? Or just afraid that oppo researchers will tar him as greedy and selfish if they get video of his usual performance?

Hard to say. And Domino doesn’t care. We’re getting our last warm spell of the season around here, and right now that’s all that’s on her mind. Enjoy the weekend, everyone.

WE'RE TAKING A SHORT BREAK…

from the big banner at the top of our pages asking for the donations that make Mother Jones' nonprofit journalism possible. But we still have upwards of $300,000 to raise by June 30, whether we get there is going to come down to the wire, and we can't afford to come up short.

If you value the reporting you get from Mother Jones and you can right now, please join your fellow readers who pitch in from time to time to keep our democracy-advancing, justice-seeking journalism charging hard (and to help us avoid a real budget crunch as June 30 approaches and our fiscal year ends).
