Friday Cat Blogging – 16 January 2009


FRIDAY CATBLOGGING….We’re entering a cold snap here in Southern California, with temps forecast to plummet to a brisk 75 or so this afternoon. Time to bundle up!

Actually, Inkblot has been shedding for the past few days, as our Santa Ana-induced record warmth has fooled him into thinking that summer has come. Hopefully he’ll figure out soon that it’s just a trick. I wouldn’t want him to lose his lovely winter coat too soon.

In other weather-related cat news (how’s that for a smooth segue?), Danish reporter Ole K. sends along “Jörg Kachelmann und Lupin” for your YouTube viewing pleasure. Note hint of action to come at about the 0:17 mark. Very civilized, those German weather forecasters.

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.
