FRIDAY CATBLOGGING….Fall is here! I know your puny human calendar says it’s still a few days away, but I know better because my seasonal alarm clock has spoken. A few days ago, after a summer of ignoring it, Domino once again demanded (literally) that we clear the junk off the sheepskin pod and put it back up on the couch for her to sleep in. This is a much better indicator than all that solstice/equinox stuff.

Though it may be a little iffy about which season is coming up. Last year Domino demanded the return of the pod right before winter. This is either an indication of a chilly fall ahead of us, or else an indication that Domino has a brain the size of a peanut. But look: if you had a brain the size of a peanut, you’d have trouble keeping track of seasons too. So don’t be too judgmental.

Meanwhile, Inkblot doesn’t need a pod or any other kind of sleep aid. Just a paw over his eyes and he’s set to go.

HERE ARE THE FACTS:

Our fall fundraising drive is off to a rough start, and we very much need to raise $250,000 in the next couple of weeks. If you value the journalism you get from Mother Jones, please help us do it with a donation today.

As we wrote over the summer, traffic has been down at Mother Jones and a lot of sites with many people thinking news is less important now that Donald Trump is no longer president. But if you're reading this, you're not one of those people, and we're hoping we can rally support from folks like you who really get why our reporting matters right now. And that's how it's always worked: For 45 years now, a relatively small group of readers (compared to everyone we reach) who pitch in from time to time has allowed Mother Jones to do the type of journalism the moment demands and keep it free for everyone else.

Please pitch in with a donation during our fall fundraising drive if you can. We can't afford to come up short, and there's still a long way to go by November 5.
