Friday Cat Blogging – 7 December 2012

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


I have an exciting new catblogging/quiltblogging series planned for 2013, but that’s still a few weeks away. For now, you get Christmas tree blogging. To my surprise, I plonked Domino in front of the newly-decorated tree a couple of nights ago, and she actually sat there and let me take her picture for a minute or two. Perhaps she was rewarding me for buying a new brand of cat food that she obviously likes a whole lot better than the old brand. Who knows? In any case, so far the tree is intact and Domino hasn’t started playing with the low-hanging ornaments yet. We’ll see if that changes over the next week or so.

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.
