You’ve seen catblogging in the aughts. Now prepare yourself for the awesome spectacle of catblogging in the teens!

Which, um, turns out to be much the same. But maybe it’s because these pictures were taken yesterday and aren’t truly new decade material. In any case, Inkblot is on the left, swatting at a stick outside the frame of the picture. Actually, it was an iron rod that I was waving around, and after Inkblot bopped it a few times and realized it didn’t bend friskily like a normal stick, he got scared of its adamantine nature and eventually fled the scene. (And by “fled” I mean he jumped over to the other chaise longue and gave me the evil eye.) As for Domino, she’s just enjoying the last of the December sun here in Southern California. Good call.

ONE MORE QUICK THING:

Or at least we hope. It’s fall fundraising time, and we’re trying to raise $250,000 to help fund Mother Jones’ journalism during a shorter than normal three-week push.

If you’re reading this, a fundraising pitch at the bottom of an article, you must find our team’s reporting valuable and we hope you’ll consider supporting it with a donation of any amount right now if you can.

It’s really that simple. But if you’d like to read a bit more, our membership lead, Brian Hiatt, has a post for you highlighting some of our newsroom's impressive, impactful work of late—including two big investigations in just one day and covering voting rights the way it needs to be done—that we hope you'll agree is worth supporting.
