Friday Cat Blogging – 16 August 2013


Obviously this has been a trying week for humans here at the Drum household, what with all our elbow and ankle injuries. But there are silver linings. Back when I was almost totally immobilized, Marian brought down a huge collection of pillows to prop me up in various spots. Then I got better and didn’t need the pillows, so they got piled up on the sofa. That turned out to be a boon for Domino, who very much enjoyed playing princess-and-the-pea with the big stack of downy softness that we had obviously laid down just for her.

Sadly, the pillows have now been moved to their usual resting spot upstairs, so once again Domino has to make do with ordinary cushions, carpets, and sunny spots on the floor. Sic transit etc.

LESS DREADING, MORE DOING

This is the rubber-meets-road moment: the early days in our first fundraising drive since we took a big swing and merged with CIR to bring fearless investigative reporting to the internet, radio, video, and everywhere else that people need an antidote to lies and propaganda.

Donations have started slow, and we hope that explaining, level-headedly, why your support really is everything for our reporting will make a difference. Learn more in “Less Dreading, More Doing,” or in this 2:28 video about our merger (that literally just won an award), and please pitch in if you can right now.
