Friday Cat Blogging – 23 May 2014


I know that I’ve put up versions of this photo before, but I like it a lot, so here’s another one taken earlier this week. The cat outline is so stark you’d almost think it was a fake shadow dropped in via Photoshop (a la MST3K), but it’s real. My Photoshop skills don’t extend to stuff like this.

One of these days, I’ll get the perfect photo, taken at just the right time of day to catch the light best and just the right time of year for maximum foliage and with Domino posed in just the right way. Someday! Unfortunately, whenever Domino sees me pointing the camera at her, she gets up and trots over, so I don’t usually have much time to get a good shot. You can’t tell from this photo, but she’s looking straight at the camera, and sure enough, she got up and headed my way just a few seconds later. Catblogging is trickier than it looks.

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).
