Friday Cat Blogging – 10 September 2010

This picture of Domino is one of my favorites ever. I couldn’t really tell you why. It just seems so perfectly feline. (However, she wasn’t staring in the window because she wanted me to open the door and let her in. That’s usually the reason, but this time it turned out she was engaged with some sort of insect on the front porch and wasn’t trying to get my attention at all. She just wanted to catch her bug.) Over on the right, Inkblot has burrowed himself under a quilt, something that’s suddenly attracted his interest just this week. I guess the weather must be turning colder. He didn’t really do the job right, though, so as soon as I finished taking pictures of him I lowered the quilt so he could have a more cave-like hidey hole. He seemed pleased.

THANK YOU.

We recently wrapped up the crowdfunding campaign for our ambitious Mother Jones Corruption Project, and it was a smashing success. About 10,364 readers pitched in with donations averaging $45, and together they contributed about $467,374 toward our $500,000 goal.

That's amazing. We still have donations from letters we sent in the mail coming back to us, so we're on pace to hit—if not exceed—that goal. Thank you so much. We'll keep you posted here as the project ramps up, and you can join the hundreds of readers who have alerted us to corruption to dig into.
