Friday Cat Blogging – 23 April 2010

Happy Shakespeare’s birthday! Maybe. April 23rd is as good a guess as any, and if you’re not convinced just pretend you’re celebrating St. George’s Day instead. Inkblot and Domino are celebrating by hunting critters in the deep, dark jungle in our backyard. I don’t really know what Inkblot is looking at, I just know that something caught his eye and he took off like a shot for the bushes to track it down. As usual, he failed. Domino then followed him out and caught sight of some birds. She even made that funny cat hunting sound, which I’ve never heard her attempt before.

And there’s good news to go with all this: Wednesday was vet day, and everyone is healthy. Hooray! What’s more, according to the official weigh-in, Inkblot has lost about five pounds since his peak and Domino has lost two-and-a-half. Not exactly supermodel svelte, but that’s good enough for now. Have a nice weekend, everyone.

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.
