Friday Cat Blogging – 4 April 2014


Well, I managed to make it through the morning. In case you’re curious about what’s going on with me, I’m having difficulty breathing. It came on rather suddenly a couple of weeks ago, and since then I’ve undergone loads of tests. The results are simple: my heart is fine, my lungs are fine, my O2 saturation is fine, and my ribs aren’t cracked. A CT scan showed no inflammation or blood clots. A pulmonary specialist prescribed an inhaler just to see if it would work—I’m guessing it’s an extract of pure unobtanium considering how much it cost—and it might be helping a little bit. But probably not. Sometimes I’m OK, other times I feel like I just ran a marathon. Yesterday I laid on the couch and watched movies all day. Today I’m better, but hardly breathing easily.

It’s frustrating as hell. Can I blame Obamacare? In any case, the only catblogging pictures I have are a few I took earlier this week when I was feeling better. So here you go, Domino sunning herself in the front yard on Tuesday. Enjoy.

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.
