Here it is: your final bit of catblogging before we start our Cats & Quilts series in 2013. Marian got me a fisheye lens attachment for my iPhone for Christmas, so last night I experimented taking some distorted iPhone pictures of Domino that could be turned into a Christmas ornament image of her very own next year. (In fact, this is actually a two-iPhone picture, since Marian provided the lighting via the flashlight app on her phone.)

Unfortunately, Domino looks more scary than cute. I think we’ll have to try again outdoors where the light is better. Hopefully we’ll manage to come up with something good by next December.

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.
