So you think the royal wedding has been overexposed? Don’t be silly. The overexposure has only barely begun! And today, the cats and I do our part to keep the royal media extravaganza going, with a tsotchke assist from my sister.

On the left, Inkblot is celebrating the great day — and demonstrating his serene confidence in his own masculinity — by wearing a lovely royal tiara. Majestic looking, isn’t he? And aside from being made out of plastic, it’s just like Kate’s! Except for all the parts that aren’t. On the right, Domino is royalty percatified, surrounded by my sister’s treasures. Unlike Inkblot, who’s generally willing to plonk down wherever you put him (for a while, anyway), Domino doesn’t really like being told what to do. This meant that her picture took a little while longer to set up. Basically, I had to wait for her to go to sleep somewhere and then start piling stuff up around her. That only worked for a few minutes, but a few minutes was all I needed.

So anyway, happy royal wedding day! It’s a bank holiday in Britain, and I declare the rest of the day a cat holiday in America. Go pet a cat!

FOLLOW THE MONEY

Corporations and billionaires don’t fund journalism like ours that exists to shake things up. Instead, support from readers allows Mother Jones to call it like it is without fear, favor, or false equivalence.

And right now, a longtime friend of Mother Jones has pledged an incredibly generous gift to inspire—and double—giving from online readers. That's huge! Because you can see that our fall fundraising drive is well behind the $325,000 we need to raise. So if you agree that in-depth, fiercely independent journalism matters right now, please support our work and help us raise the money it takes to keep Mother Jones charging hard. Your gift, and all online donations up to $94,000 total, will be matched and go twice as far—but only until the November 9 deadline.
