Friday Cat Blogging – 12 June 2020

This looks like a violation of several of the Geneva Conventions, but I assure you that it was entirely voluntary on Hilbert’s part. The funny thing is that every minute or so he’d kind of shimmy around trying to find the perfect position and end up rotating about 10 degrees. Half an hour after I took this picture his head was down in the lower left corner.

This is all part of Project Hilbert, an effort to get myself back into his good graces. For some reason, over the past year he’s become completely enamored with Marian and no longer gives me the time of day. So I’ve been luring him closer to me bit by bit, sometimes with a promise of being brushed, other times with a bit of catnip. And it’s working! He curled up on my feet a few days ago, the first time he’s done that in a long time. Soon we will be old friends again.

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.
