Friday Cat Blogging – 11 September 2009

It’s flash photography day!  Which is not so great since the flash on my camera is pretty mediocre.  What’s more, although it does a miraculous job of eliminating redeye in humans, it’s not so great at eliminating laser eye in cats.  But somehow we soldier on anyway.  On the left, Inkblot is snoozing on a pile of fresh laundry under the ever-watchful gaze of the Brobdingnagian Fuzzy.  On the right, Domino falls for the old finger in the sky trick.  They just never learn.

THANK YOU.

We recently wrapped up the crowdfunding campaign for our ambitious Mother Jones Corruption Project, and it was a smashing success. About 10,364 readers pitched in with donations averaging $45, and together they contributed about $467,374 toward our $500,000 goal.

That's amazing. We still have donations from letters we sent in the mail coming back to us, so we're on pace to hit—if not exceed—that goal. Thank you so much. We'll keep you posted here as the project ramps up, and you can join the hundreds of readers who have alerted us to corruption to dig into.
