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?)

FACT:

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.
