Friday Cat Blogging – 21 January 2011

On the left, here’s a good picture of Domino’s stubby front legs. Or is it something else at work? In any case, when she walks she definitely slopes up toward the rear, which you don’t normally see in a cat. On the right, here’s another shot from the series of pictures of Inkblot and the laser pointer that I took a couple of weeks ago. Why? Because you can never get enough of cats and laser pointers. Note also that he’s sitting on a cheap area rug that we originally bought to protect a high-traffic area of the carpet. It’s almost literally in shreds now because Inkblot has adopted it as his personal scratching post. But I’m basically OK with this. It only cost twenty bucks, and if it lures him away from the furniture and the carpet, that’s fine. I’ll just buy a new one every six months or something

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.
