New Year’s Catblogging

You’ve seen catblogging in the aughts. Now prepare yourself for the awesome spectacle of catblogging in the teens!

Which, um, turns out to be much the same. But maybe it’s because these pictures were taken yesterday and aren’t truly new decade material. In any case, Inkblot is on the left, swatting at a stick outside the frame of the picture. Actually, it was an iron rod that I was waving around, and after Inkblot bopped it a few times and realized it didn’t bend friskily like a normal stick, he got scared of its adamantine nature and eventually fled the scene. (And by “fled” I mean he jumped over to the other chaise longue and gave me the evil eye.) As for Domino, she’s just enjoying the last of the December sun here in Southern California. Good call.

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.
