Friday Cat Blogging – 13 July 2012

On the left, Inkblot is conked out on a scratching pad that’s recently been recharged with fresh catnip. On the right, Domino wants someone to let her in the front door. I never get tired of this routine of hers.

(Inkblot has never been bright enough to figure this out, though. He’ll wander around outside the door and occasionally make piteous sounds, but it’s never occurred to him to stare in the window. Not to worry, though. As president, he’ll be the big picture guy, leaving the details of how to get humans to open doors up to his staff.)

Need more cats? My sister passes along video of this adorable gray kitten and its fur-raising green apples, perfect for Friday the 13th.

FACT:

Mother Jones was founded as a nonprofit in 1976 because we knew corporations and the wealthy wouldn't fund the type of hard-hitting journalism we set out to do.

Today, reader support makes up about two-thirds of our budget, allows us to dig deep on stories that matter, and lets us keep our reporting free for everyone. If you value what you get from Mother Jones, please join us with a tax-deductible donation today so we can keep on doing the type of journalism 2019 demands.
