Friday Cat Blogging – 31 August 2018

I believe today it’s Hilbert’s turn at stardom after our brief dachshund diversion last week. Here he is on the fence, keeping a close eye on our neighbor’s backyard, which grows more cat friendly by the day. This is because the folks who bought the house two years ago (!) have left it empty the entire time and just let the garden grow. Every six months or so they come by with a weed wacker and slice everything down some, probably because their neighbor on the other side complains to the association. Personally, I sort of wish it had been left alone, just to see how jungle-like it could get. In any case, the cats like it best when it’s overgrown, probably because they know that means I can’t find them when they hop over to cruise around. Cats.

Mother Jones was founded as a nonprofit in 1976 because we knew corporations and billionaire owners 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 2021 demands.
