Friday Cat Blogging – 5 April 2019

I was at the top of the stairs and happened to have my camera in my hand when Hopper and Hilbert came tearing into the house last week.

A dog passing by? Could be anything.

Today we have a bonus cat! A bonus kitten, actually. Yesterday the Washington Post ran a piece about Dean Nicholson, who is currently bicycling around the world. He started in Scotland, and eventually made his way to Bosnia—where a kitten by the side of the road stole his heart and became his companion for the rest of the journey, riding along in a pouch on the front of the bike.

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).
