Friday Cat Blogging – 12 September 2014


A few of you have written to ask if we plan to get another cat. The answer is probably yes, but not immediately.  And what does “not immediately” mean? There’s no telling. A new cat could walk into our lives tomorrow, or it might take a little while longer. We’ll see.

In the meantime, my mother’s cats continue to be perky and photogenic, and ever since she learned how easy it is to take pictures with her iPad and email them directly to me, I’ve been getting more photos of her brood. Below you can see the latest. Mozart has pretty plainly settled in to alpha cat status, and Ditto just as plainly isn’t quite sure he’s happy about that. But it’s too late. Ditto has the bulk, but I think Mozart has whatever indefinable feline quality it is that makes him boss. It’s his house now.

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.
