Friday Cat Blogging – 19 April 2013

Some weeks you need Friday catblogging more than other weeks. This is one of those weeks. Yesterday it was 80 degrees in the backyard, so that’s where Domino spent the afternoon, soaking up the warmth while the rest of us worried about terrorist bombings, exploding fertilizer plants, and failed gun bills. If events get to be too much for you, I recommend staring at this picture and zoning out for a bit.


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.
