Friday Cat Blogging – 8 September 2017

Yesterday I posted a picture of the moon peeking out from behind the clouds, and wondered aloud about why the clouds had a bit of a red tinge to them. The most common answer had to do with our local wildfires, but this was wrong. I failed to mention that this photo was taken a month ago, and this misled a lot of you. The winning answer involved Science™: it was all due to moonlight filtered by the water droplets in the air. The droplets cause the blue light to scatter, leaving behind the rust-colored tinge.

But enough about that. In today’s catblogging, our local cats are back after last week’s kitten blogging. Today’s photo features Hilbert hanging over the second-story balcony to keep an eye on everything happening downstairs. And what was happening? Some suspicious-looking guy with a camera was walking around taking pictures of cats.

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.
