Today you get more than boring old catblogging.  You get a cat movie.  Or a short feature, anyway.

OK, fine: it’s 26 seconds long.

Its star is Domino as she plonked down the stairs this morning to check out the kibble situation.  You’ll notice that she has sort of a weird gait coming down the stairs, not at all like the panther-esque stride that a normal cat would display.  (Like, say, Inkblot.)  (No, really.  When he comes down the stairs you better get out of the way.)  We’re not sure why this is, but she’s been this way ever since we got her, and it seems to be due to some kind of abnormality in her front legs.  Nothing serious, and she gets around just fine.  She’s just not very lithe about it.

Anyway, as the ending shows, this dramatic production is clearly a tragedy: there’s no food in the food bowl after Domino makes the long trek downstairs.  But worry not: as soon as the cameraman was done, he filled up the bowl and Domino was there at the head of the line.  Everyone walked away happy from this movie.

DEMOCRACY DOES NOT EXIST...

without free and fair elections, a vigorous free press, and engaged citizens to reclaim power from those who abuse it.

In this election year unlike any other—against a backdrop of a pandemic, an economic crisis, racial reckoning, and so much daily bluster—Mother Jones' journalism is driven by one simple question: Will America move closer to, or further from, justice and equity in the years to come?

We can’t do it without the support of readers like you, and we need to give it everything we've got between now and November. Thank you.
