The fence is becoming an increasingly popular hangout spot. A couple of days ago both cats hopped up at once and created a logjam. Domino couldn’t figure out how to get down with Inkblot in the way, so she headed off in the wrong direction and got stopped by the rose bush. After convincing herself there was just no way through a big mass of thorns, she turned around and hopped down onto the air conditioning unit. Apparently Inkblot hadn’t counted on that bit of trickery, which meant there was no longer any point in blocking the way. So he headed over to the bird bath and hopped down too. I still don’t know for sure how they get up there, though.

ONE MORE QUICK THING:

Or at least we hope. It’s fall fundraising time, and we’re trying to raise $250,000 to help fund Mother Jones’ journalism during a shorter than normal three-week push.

If you’re reading this, a fundraising pitch at the bottom of an article, you must find our team’s reporting valuable and we hope you’ll consider supporting it with a donation of any amount right now if you can.

It’s really that simple. But if you’d like to read a bit more, our membership lead, Brian Hiatt, has a post for you highlighting some of our newsroom's impressive, impactful work of late—including two big investigations in just one day and covering voting rights the way it needs to be done—that we hope you'll agree is worth supporting.
