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.

LESS DREADING, MORE DOING

This is the rubber-meets-road moment: the early days in our first fundraising drive since we took a big swing and merged with CIR to bring fearless investigative reporting to the internet, radio, video, and everywhere else that people need an antidote to lies and propaganda.

Donations have started slow, and we hope that explaining, level-headedly, why your support really is everything for our reporting will make a difference. Learn more in “Less Dreading, More Doing,” or in this 2:28 video about our merger (that literally just won an award), and please pitch in if you can right now.
