Friday Cat Blogging – 13 July 2012

On the left, Inkblot is conked out on a scratching pad that’s recently been recharged with fresh catnip. On the right, Domino wants someone to let her in the front door. I never get tired of this routine of hers.

(Inkblot has never been bright enough to figure this out, though. He’ll wander around outside the door and occasionally make piteous sounds, but it’s never occurred to him to stare in the window. Not to worry, though. As president, he’ll be the big picture guy, leaving the details of how to get humans to open doors up to his staff.)

Need more cats? My sister passes along video of this adorable gray kitten and its fur-raising green apples, perfect for Friday the 13th.

Fact:

In-depth journalism that investigates the powerful takes real money and is so damn important right now.But it doesn’t take a Mother Jones investigation to know that billionaires and corporations will never fund the type of reporting (like they do politicians) we do that exists to help bring about change. Instead, our mission-driven journalism is made possible by people power, and has been for 46 years now since our founding as a non-profit.

In “TITLE TK” Monica Bauerlein writes about the perilous moment we’re in, and why it’s so important that we raise $325,000 by the time November’s midterms are decided so we can be ready to throw everything we have at the big issues facing the nation no matter what happens.
