Today is crash day, so it’s not likely I’ll be posting much of anything. But yesterday I caught up with our kittens to see how they were doing, so I’ll put them up as a stress reducer for the rest of the day. They are now four months old and not really even kittens anymore, but they’re still adorable.

And if you love kittens, how about showing your love by pitching in a few dollars for our fundraising drive? I’ll have more to say about this later, but for now just click here if your stimulus check is burning a hole in your pocket.

First up is Blackie, in her Vogue fashion shot beautifully framed by red flowers in my mother’s backyard:

Here is Stripey, begging for an award as cutest kitten ever:

And Grayson, who is camera shy and hard to get a good picture of:

Here is mama Meowser under the orange tree:

And finally, as long as I was there, here is Tillamook looking annoyed that I found his hidey hole under the car:

A BETTER WAY TO DO THIS?

We have an ambitious $350,000 online fundraising goal this month and we can't afford to come up short. But when a reader recently asked how being a nonprofit makes Mother Jones different from other news organizations, we realized we needed to lay this out better: Because "in absolutely every way" is essentially the answer.

So we tried to explain why your year-end donations are so essential, and we'd like your help refining our pitch about what make Mother Jones valuable and worth reading to you.

We'd also like your support of our journalism with a year-end donation if you can right now—all online gifts will be doubled until we hit our $350,000 goal thanks to an incredibly generous donor's matching gift pledge.
