Friday Cat Blogging – 27 September 2013


Today you get two Dominos in one. For reasons that escape us, she decided a few weeks ago that her new favorite thing was drinking water out of the tap. So whenever I brush my teeth, she hops up on the counter and demands that I turn on the water. I figure she’ll get bored of it eventually. Note the untouched water bowl on the floor, which she passed directly by on her way to the sink. If I pick it up and put it on the counter, she’ll drink out of it. But not if it’s on the floor.

(When I’m around, anyway. When I’m not around, she’s perfectly happy to drink out of it. Kinda makes you think there’s some ulterior motive at work here, doesn’t it?)

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.
