Happy vernal equinox! Sure, I’m a couple of days late, but that’s cat time for you. They live on their own clock.

Today, I’m giving Domino a break from the rigors of weekly catblogging and highlighting my mother’s cats instead. On the left is Ditto (named, as you might recall, because when he was a kitten he looked just like one of my mother’s other cats). On the right is his brother Tillamook, whose naming origin should be fairly obvious. These pictures were taken last weekend, but obviously both of them were looking forward to spring even then.

WE'RE TAKING A SHORT BREAK…

from the big banner at the top of our pages asking for the donations that make Mother Jones' nonprofit journalism possible. But we still have upwards of $300,000 to raise by June 30, whether we get there is going to come down to the wire, and we can't afford to come up short.

If you value the reporting you get from Mother Jones and you can right now, please join your fellow readers who pitch in from time to time to keep our democracy-advancing, justice-seeking journalism charging hard (and to help us avoid a real budget crunch as June 30 approaches and our fiscal year ends).
