Friday Super Cat Blogging – 13 November 2009

For indispensable reporting on the coronavirus crisis, the election, and more, subscribe to the Mother Jones Daily newsletter.

Today is cat overload day.  For starters, we have exclusive rare footage of Domino playing with a shoe.  I’ve cleverly titled it “Domino and the Shoe.”  And not just any shoe, either.  This one is a nice smelly shoe freshly tossed off a human foot at the end of a long workday.  I don’t know what it is about human foot smell that drives cats crazy, but smelly shoes are like catnip to them.  Weird.  In any case, be sure to watch the whole thing so you don’t miss Domino’s grand finale at the end.

But that’s not all!  Two weeks ago, we asked you to vote for your favorite Mother Jones climate cat covers — and to add your own to the meow mix. The results were overwhelming — a cascade of cat covers. Four of the original contestants tied for first place, and I’ve chosen another eleven for our final cat-off.  A flickr gallery of all the entrants is below, and you can see — and vote for — the final 15 contenders here.

So click here and vote! May the best cat win.

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?

If you're able to, please join us in this mission with a donation today. Our reporting right now is focused on voting rights and election security, corruption, disinformation, racial and gender equity, and the climate crisis. 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.
