Friday Cat Blogging – 28 December 2018

This is a pretty frequent occurrence at our house: Hopper out on the front porch pretending that she’s locked out and desperately wants to come in. Hilbert looks on distractedly while Hopper gives Marian a sad look. The reality here is that if Marian opens the door, Hopper will either (a) wander off because she didn’t want to come in after all, or (b) she’ll zip in and then exit through the back door, as if she couldn’t have gotten to the backyard just by walking around the side of the house. Needless to say, the whole thing is a scam, just a test of whether the household servants are properly trained. We always pass, but just barely.

And while we’re on the subject, 2018 is nearly over and this is your last chance to help us out with our year-end fundraiser. As you can see from the thermometer above, we’re getting close to our goal! We just need a little bit more. Click here to make a contribution via credit card or PayPal.

MOTHER JONES NEEDS YOUR HELP

Straight to the point: Donations have been concerningly slow for our hugely important First $500,000 fundraising campaign. We urgently need your help, and a lot of help, over the next few weeks so we can pay for the one-of-a-kind journalism you get from us.

Learn more in “Less Dreading, More Doing,” where we lay out this wild moment and how we can keep charging hard for you. And please help if you can: $5, $50, or $500—every gift from every person truly matters right now.
