Friday Cat Blogging – 14 September 2018

Look! The lovely people at Amazon delivered Hopper some brand new living quarters! Jolly decent of them, no? This picture was taken over the weekend, while the new boîte de chat was still in pristine shape, but I’m sad to report that it’s already showing signs of wear and tear. It’s almost as if some animal the size of, oh, I don’t know, a raccoon or a smallish dog, was chewing away on it. It’s sort of mysterious, no?


Mother Jones was founded as a nonprofit in 1976 because we knew corporations and the wealthy wouldn't fund the type of hard-hitting journalism we set out to do.

Today, reader support makes up about two-thirds of our budget, allows us to dig deep on stories that matter, and lets us keep our reporting free for everyone. If you value what you get from Mother Jones, please join us with a tax-deductible donation today so we can keep on doing the type of journalism 2019 demands.
