Friday Cat Blogging – 9 September 2011

Catblogging was a close call this week. But last night my sister told me that not only had I better get on the ball and take some pictures, but it had been a tough week and they’d better be good pictures. Well, I don’t know about that. But for better or worse, this morning we have cats exercising their brain muscles. On the left, Inkblot is finishing up today’s Sudoku and Kenken puzzles in the LA Times. He seems to have made pretty good progress. On the right, Domino is working on the crossword puzzle, but she doesn’t seem to be doing as well. I guess she got distracted by the cartoons.

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.
