Happy Caturday. Ah, listen to this 9-day-old kitten's adorable squeals! Boing Boing pal Miles O'Brien was learning how to fly his camera drone with one hand after becoming one-handed. At the drone flying range near Washington, DC, a friend had a few 9-day old kittens hanging out on a blanket.
If you would like to adopt one of them, contact Nikki Driver at firstname.lastname@example.org. Nikki is a vet, so they're in good hands. She and the kittens are near Charlottesville, VA.

My friend Brian Braun photographed this amazing street kitteh who lives in a parking lot, next to a dumpster in Sarasota, FL. Apparently he's been there *for years*. The cat's a badass. You can see the will to survive in its eyes.

The Black Cat Truffle, by heavenly-chocolate.com.
Below, a sneaky-cam shot of Miss Shelley Winters, the cat companion of web comic artist R. Stevens. Rich sent me a care package to cheer me up around a recent surgery, and they contained an assortment of delicious cat-shaped vegan chocolates.
The Black Cat Truffle, by heavenly-chocolate.com: "Dark chocolate ganache in the shape of a cat with sunflower seeds for ears, enrobed in dark chocolate and hand-decorated." I am enjoying its decapitated head while sipping my morning coffee out of one of R. Stevens' "Fucking Coffee" mugs.

Oh, my goodness this video
is sweet. Uploader "jefcharles" explains,
After being sent home from work the first thing I did on getting home was to check outside the back door to see if there were any cat paw prints. There weren't, so I thought I'd introduce Fletcher to the snow and film the results..
