Friday Cat Blogging – 10 December 2010

Let our journalists help you make sense of the noise: Subscribe to the Mother Jones Daily newsletter and get a recap of news that matters.

The long arm of the law has caught up with me. After an excessive amount of turkey caused me to forget about my jury duty assignment last month, I’m now assigned to a jury pool for the week before Christmas. Hopefully judges and lawyers don’t really want to work very much that week, so demand for jurors will be small.

And what does that have to do with catblogging? Nothing, really. But what do you think of Inkblot and Domino as potential jurors? They look like hanging judges in this rare picture of them sharing the same snoozing space without growling at each other. Usually Inkblot chases Domino away if he wants whatever spot she’s sleeping in. Then, to add insult to injury, he wanders off because he didn’t really want it after all. He just didn’t want her to have it. This attitude is normally called “dog in the manger,” but perhaps it should really be called “cat in the manger”?

And here’s a contest: can you figure out where this picture has been photoshopped? There are no prizes for winning, just the warm glow of knowing that you have a keen eye for crude digital manipulation.
