Friday Cat Blogging – 24 August 2012

Mitt Romney made a dumb birther joke today, but Domino doesn’t care. Partly that’s because this picture was taken three days ago, and partly because she’s a cat. In this picture taken on Tuesday, she’s showing off the essential dumbness of her species: despite the fact that it was over 90 in the house, she made a beeline for the nearest sunny patch. I guess when the neurons fire, the neurons fire. What’s a cat to do?


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.
