Domino Update

I don’t want to keep you all on the edge of your seats, so here’s the news: Domino has a hyperactive thyroid. This is what’s causing her lack of appetite and weight loss. We’re going to put her on a low-iodine diet and hopefully this will clear everything up. She also got a flea bath today, and tomorrow I’ll de-flea the house. That should take care of her flea-related itchiness.

With any luck, this will fix all our problems. All our cat problems, anyway.


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.
