Miles O’ Brien, We Salute U

According to Boing Boing, journalist Miles O’Brien was at a drone flying range (they have these things?) near Washington DC, learning how to fly his camera drone one-handed (due to an unfortunate accident.)

He happened to be joined at the range by…a blanket with a pair kittehs. C.O. tweeted Mr. O’Brien, who tweet-replied (in 125 characters, btw):

“I think there is nothing cuter per pound than a kitten that small. Not sure I have ever seen one that young. Smitten w/kitten.”

He took this video, and sent it to BB. Interested in adoption? Click here! (The little critters the remaining kitteh are is with veterinarian Nikki Driver in Charlottesville, VA.)

Update! This just in from Nikki herself:

“Thanks so much for the shout-out, your site has more Cute on it than I thought the Internet could handle! The only thing to add is that the bigger of the two (the other has found a foster home with the intent to adopt) purrs and kneads after he eats and when he poops!! Thanks so much and keep up the Cute Work!”
