Friday Cat Blogging – 16 May 2014


This is nature red in tooth and claw. Today, Domino can barely even rouse herself to stare disdainfully at the camera. To make up for her lethargy, however, we have additional wildlife blogging this week. Our mama hummingbird has built herself a little hummingbird nest and is now patiently waiting for her teensy tiny little eggs to hatch. When I took this picture, Domino was plonked out about five feet away, blissfully unaware that anything was going on. Jasmine probably would have scoped this situation out pretty quickly and figured out a way to shinny up the bush and snag the eggs. But Domino? Anything more difficult to hunt than a bowl of cat food is just not on her radar. At our house these days, the wildlife all lives in a state of peaceful coexistence.

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.
