Friday Cat Blogging – 21 June 2019

Here is Hopper showing off her superlative snoozing skills in her new favorite place. In case you can’t quite tell, she’s on top of a blanket that’s draped over the back of the sofa. Sometimes she sleeps like this, other times she burrows behind the quilt hanging on the wall and only her paws and her tail give her away. Oddly enough, this has not yet attracted Hilbert’s attention. Usually we can count on him to try to take away Hopper’s sleeping place, whatever it happens to be, but I guess he has no interest in trying to balance himself on top of the sofa.

BY THE WAY: If Hopper were awake, she would ask you to contribute to our Corruption Project—if you haven’t already. Just click here.


We recently wrapped up the crowdfunding campaign for our ambitious Mother Jones Corruption Project, and it was a smashing success. About 10,364 readers pitched in with donations averaging $45, and together they contributed about $467,374 toward our $500,000 goal.

That's amazing. We still have donations from letters we sent in the mail coming back to us, so we're on pace to hit—if not exceed—that goal. Thank you so much. We'll keep you posted here as the project ramps up, and you can join the hundreds of readers who have alerted us to corruption to dig into.
