Friday Cat Blogging – 2 September 2011

This week’s catblogging plan originally focused on cats and laser pointers. Unfortunately, it was too dark and none of the pictures turned out. So instead we get preprandial playtime—a fixture of our day around here. On the left, Inkblot is rolling around and looking at a big black blob. That would be Domino. On the right, Domino is now plonked on the carpet staring at someone. Guess who? This all lasted about five minutes, until one of Inkblot’s alpha-cat neurons fired and Domino decided to hightail it out into the yard. But it was fun while it lasted. Dinner followed shortly after that.

Have a nice Labor Day weekend, everyone. Go Trojans!

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.
