Friday Cat Blogging – 9 April 2010

Domino was uncooperative today. Every time I aimed the camera in her direction she immediately perked up and walked straight toward it. She thinks it’s a giant eye, and she’s mesmerized by eyes. If I want her to come to me, she resolutely ignores everything I do1 unless I get down on the floor and look at her from eye level. Then she immediately trots over. This is actually kind of fun except when I want to take a picture of her. So instead of a nice spring-ish garden picture, you get one I took yesterday as she was rolling over in her afternoon patch of sunshine. Inkblot, however, who is oblivious to everything,1 remained right where he was when I went out in the garden today. So he gets a nice spring-ish garden picture. If the weather cooperates in your neck of the woods, I hope you get to spend some time in your garden too.

1Other than opening a can of cat food, of course.

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.
