Say hello to Moloko, Professor Marc’s new cat. Isn’t he gorgeous?

Prof M. has had a tough time lately. Mrs. M is allergic to cats, so they’re limited to Siberians. That has turned into a horrible succession of Siberians with inherited disorders, all from allegedly reputable breeders. Only one has survived and recovered. However, this disorder shows up young, so they finally went looking for an older cat. Moloko is seven years old, and his owner wanted to give him up to another home after their other cat died and Moloko seemed lonely. So Prof M and Mrs. M introduced Moloko to Mocha and the M household now has two cats again, both having fun chasing each other around. Don’t you love it when a story finally has a happy ending?

We've never been very good at being conservative.

And usually, that serves us well in doing the ambitious, hard-hitting journalism that you turn to Mother Jones for. But it also means we can't afford to come up short when it comes to scratching together the funds it takes to keep our team firing on all cylinders, and the truth is, we finished our budgeting cycle on June 30 about $100,000 short of our online goal.

This is no time to come up short. It's time to fight like hell, as our namesake would tell us to do, for a democracy where minority rule cannot impose an extreme agenda, where facts matter, and where accountability has a chance at the polls and in the press. If you value our reporting and you can right now, please help us dig out of the $100,000 hole we're starting our new budgeting cycle in with an always-needed and always-appreciated donation today.
