Today is crash day, so it’s not likely I’ll be posting much of anything. But yesterday I caught up with our kittens to see how they were doing, so I’ll put them up as a stress reducer for the rest of the day. They are now four months old and not really even kittens anymore, but they’re still adorable.

And if you love kittens, how about showing your love by pitching in a few dollars for our fundraising drive? I’ll have more to say about this later, but for now just click here if your stimulus check is burning a hole in your pocket.

First up is Blackie, in her Vogue fashion shot beautifully framed by red flowers in my mother’s backyard:

Here is Stripey, begging for an award as cutest kitten ever:

And usually, that serves us well in doing the ambitious, hard-hitting journalism that you turn to Mother Jones for. But it also means we can't afford to come up short when it comes to scratching together the funds it takes to keep our team firing on all cylinders, and the truth is, we finished our budgeting cycle on June 30 about $100,000 short of our online goal.

This is no time to come up short. It's time to fight like hell, as our namesake would tell us to do, for a democracy where minority rule cannot impose an extreme agenda, where facts matter, and where accountability has a chance at the polls and in the press. If you value our reporting and you can right now, please help us dig out of the $100,000 hole we're starting our new budgeting cycle in with an always-needed and always-appreciated donation today.
