Friday Cat Blogging – 9 May 2014

Domino heard recently that selfies are all the rage among celebrities, so she decided she wanted to take a selfie for this week’s cat blogging. Naturally, she didn’t deign to actually take the selfie herself, but instead commanded one of her servants to take it. Her servant, as it happens, found this more challenging than he expected, partly because he had to do it left-handed. Still, it’s not wise to disappoint the queen, so this week a selfie is what we get. Perhaps I should put it on Twitter and see if I can beat Ellen’s record.


We recently wrapped up the crowdfunding campaign for our ambitious Mother Jones Corruption Project, and it was a smashing success. About 10,364 readers pitched in with donations averaging $45, and together they contributed about $467,374 toward our $500,000 goal.

That's amazing. We still have donations from letters we sent in the mail coming back to us, so we're on pace to hit—if not exceed—that goal. Thank you so much. We'll keep you posted here as the project ramps up, and you can join the hundreds of readers who have alerted us to corruption to dig into.
