Friday Cat Blogging – 17 May 2019

My first night in Virginia during this month’s vacation to the Blue Ridge Parkway was spent in my sister-in-law’s house. The next morning, I was the very first person to see her new dog, Watson. He’s a rescue dog, about five years old, and judging by the hour or so I spent with him, very friendly and full of energy. Watson is a terrier mix, and he found a toy to play with about one minute after being shown in the door.

Poor Hilbert, though. It’s been nearly a month since he’s been the star of cat blogging. We’ll fix that next week.

FACT:

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.
