Friday Cat Blogging – 11 December 2009

I’ve been fighting off my cats this week.  Domino has taken to jumping up on my desk and making a nuisance of herself because she wants me to vacate my chair so she can sleep in it.  I finally got tired of this, so I decided to put her pod on the desk and see if she’d be satisfied with that instead.  As you can see, it worked.  So then I put a pillow on the floor next to my desk, put the pod on the pillow, and drew her attention to that.  She seems very happy, and now mostly leaves me alone.

Unfortunately, as you can also see, nature abhors a vacuum and cats abhor an empty spot from which to annoy their humans.  Domino may be happy with her pod, but now Inkblot is the one jumping up on my desk trying to get me out of the chair.  He’s never been attracted to pods, so I’m not sure what the solution is going to be if he keeps this up.  Suggestions?

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.
