Friday Cat Blogging – 14 December 2018

Hilbert has always enjoyed tipping over wastebaskets, but I think this is the first time he’s dived into the one in the laundry room. At first he looked like he was going to curl up and take a nap in there, but then he saw all the delightful cardboard and started gnawing on it. He was having a pretty good time until some guy with a camera barged in and started taking pictures.


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.
