Friday Cat Blogging – 17 June 2011

For indispensable reporting on the coronavirus crisis, the election, and more, subscribe to the Mother Jones Daily newsletter.

No theme today, just a pair o’ cats. On the left, Inkblot is trying to look like he’s the king of the jungle. You decide if he’s succeeded. On the right, Domino is entranced with that greatest of all cat toys, the paper bag. She had quite a good time during that photo shoot. (And yes, before you ask, she got her head caught in the bag’s handle once. Luckily her human servant was around to extract her. The bag then exited the room when the human did.)

UPDATE: From comments, the presidential campaign finally gets kicked off for real: “Inkblot/Domino for 2012! One pretends to be king of the jungle and the other can’t get out of a paper bag. Perfect credentials for a P/VP ticket.”

DEMOCRACY DOES NOT EXIST...

without free and fair elections, a vigorous free press, and engaged citizens to reclaim power from those who abuse it.

In this election year unlike any other—against a backdrop of a pandemic, an economic crisis, racial reckoning, and so much daily crazy—Mother Jones' journalism is driven by one simple question: Will America will move closer to, or further from, justice and equity in the years to come?

If you're able to, please join us in this mission with a donation today. Our reporting right now is focused on voting rights and election security, corruption, disinformation, racial and gender equity, and the climate crisis. We can’t do it without the support of readers like you, and we need to give it everything we've got between now and November. Thank you.
