Friday Cat Blogging – 31 October 2008


FRIDAY CAT KITTEN BLOGGING…. Last week I complained darkly of technical problems and feline noncooperation. This week those problems have been overcome and both Inkblot and Domino are taking the week off as a result. Instead, this week’s catblogging features Lily, my mother’s newest addition to the family.

My friends, this is a kitten you can believe in.

She is, of course, too young to run for president in 2012. But in cat years she’ll be perfectly positioned to run in 2016, and she’s practicing for the campaign by taking an executive position in my mother’s house, where she apparently managed to take over completely within a few hours of her arrival. Poor Lucy didn’t know what hit her.

Happy Halloween, everyone. Be sure to keep your cats indoors tonight.

Fact:

Mother Jones was founded as a nonprofit in 1976 because we knew corporations and the wealthy wouldn’t fund the type of hard-hitting journalism we set out to do.

Today, reader support makes up about two-thirds of our budget, allows us to dig deep on stories that matter, and lets us keep our reporting free for everyone. If you value what you get from Mother Jones, please join us with a tax-deductible donation so we can keep on doing the type of journalism that 2018 demands.
