Friday Cat Blogging – 2 January 2015


Let’s start off 2015 right. Today Hilbert gets catblogging all to himself. Why? Because he’s just that magnificent, that’s why. This is sort of a reverse-selfie, the kind of picture Hilbert would take if he didn’t have a servant to take it for him. But he does. Life is good.

Of course, he doesn’t quite have catblogging all to himself. Hopper is back there waiting her turn. How did she manage to photobomb this picture? That’s easy. Around here, if you just point a camera randomly in any direction, you have at least even odds of a cat showing up. This is the sign of a properly run household.

THANK YOU.

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.
