Friday Cat Blogging – 24 May 2019

The grass outside our house has been growing tall, and for some reason it hasn’t been mowed for a couple of weeks. Naturally the cats love it. Hilbert in particular likes to stalk through it and then hunt down blades of grass to eat. He is a mighty hunter indeed.

Anyway, this turns out to be your lucky day. I took pictures, of course, and told Marian she had to decide between the two finalists. She couldn’t, so today you get two cat blogging pictures. In return, Hilbert would like you to please donate to our Corruption Project if you haven’t already done so. Just don’t dip into the tuna money to do it.

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.
