This is our latest horror story. For reasons unknown (and they’re always unknown, aren’t they?) Hopper has decided that it’s great fun to jump up on the second-story bannister and walk around. We can’t think of any way to stop her from doing this, but one of these days she’s going to set a paw wrong and go flying off the wrong side. Being a cat, maybe it won’t hurt her. But it’s a twelve-foot drop, and some of it is onto a hardwood floor. We have visions of splat going through our heads.

What do we do? Put up a net, like those ones they have on the Golden Gate Bridge to catch jumpers? Get rid of the quilts and install razor wire? Put cat-size exercise weights on Hopper’s feet so she can’t jump so high? There’s got to be an answer.

THE END...

of our fiscal year is Thursday, June 30, and we have a much larger fundraising gap than we can easily manage with only days left to go.

Right now is no time to come up short: If you value the hard-hitting, democracy-protecting, justice-advancing journalism you get from Mother Jones, please help us keep charging as hard as we possibly can with a much-needed and much-appreciated donation today.
