Friday Cat Blogging – 29 June 2012

My sister called last night to chatter about the Obamacare decision and to demand extra super good catblogging today. The problem is that this is catblogging we’re talking about, and sometimes the cats cooperate and sometimes they don’t.

For better or worse, though, this week we have action shots. On the left, Domino is looking rather alarmed, and the reason is that she had just crashed her way through the flowers behind her. When I snapped the shutter she was still shaking the cobwebs out of her face. On the right, Inkblot is taking a sunset hunting stroll through our neighbor’s yard. In a second or two he’ll realize that the brown object he’s staring at isn’t a mouse, it’s a leaf. But life is full of disappointments like that. Both of them are still wondering if the Supreme Court upheld Obamacare’s Freedom From Vet Visits clause yesterday, and I don’t have the heart to tell them that it never made it through the conference report in the first place. They’ll find out soon enough.

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.
