Friday Cat Blogging – 26 June 2009

Fight disinformation: Sign up for the free Mother Jones Daily newsletter and follow the news that matters.

Sure, I might be on vacation, but that doesn’t mean there’s no Friday Catblogging this week.  What kind of monster do you think I am?

But if I’m on vacation, then Inkblot and Domino get a vacation too.  So this week, courtesy of reader Randy G., we have some guest catblogging.  The pile of furballs on the right are Lennie and Louie, and as you can guess, they’re littermates.  Sigh.  I want a pair of littermates some day.  They’ll be 14 years old next month, but if you’d like to see pictures of them as kittens, along with their mentors Ralph and Alice, just click here.  It’s bonus historical kitten blogging!

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.
