FRIDAY CATBLOGGING….I’ve still got a lot on my mind today, but I guess that’s true for all of us, isn’t it? So let’s call it a week anyway and spend the rest of the day winding down and admiring our cats instead. They deserve it.

Today we have action shots. Sort of. On the left, what is Domino looking at? A bird? A plane? Superman? No: it was a bird after all. To be precise, a hummingbird flitting around the garden for her occasional amusement. On the right, you’ll notice the extreme bushiness of Inkblot’s tail. I’m not entirely sure what caused it, but circumstantial evidence suggests he took note of a neighborhood dog and came charging around the corner to run into the house. Thus the tail. He knows perfectly well that the back door is open, of course, but he’d rather have somebody open the front door for him instead.

We are currently suffering from a cat food liquidity crisis, and it’s now time for resolute action to prevent it from turning into a cat food insolvency crisis and causing full blown feline panic. So I’m off to the store. Have a good weekend, everyone.

ONE MORE QUICK THING:

Or at least we hope. It’s fall fundraising time, and we’re trying to raise $250,000 to help fund Mother Jones’ journalism during a shorter than normal three-week push.

If you’re reading this, a fundraising pitch at the bottom of an article, you must find our team’s reporting valuable and we hope you’ll consider supporting it with a donation of any amount right now if you can.

It’s really that simple. But if you’d like to read a bit more, our membership lead, Brian Hiatt, has a post for you highlighting some of our newsroom's impressive, impactful work of late—including two big investigations in just one day and covering voting rights the way it needs to be done—that we hope you'll agree is worth supporting.
