Kids Get New Kitty after Receiving More Than 100,000 Facebook "Likes"

Seven-year-old Remi Urbano wanted a pet kitty for a long time. At first, his father told him no. Then he said no again. And again. Then, eventually, he said that Remi could have a cat if the photo featured to the left received 1,000 Facebook "likes." More than 100,000 "likes" later, Remi's wish was granted in the form of a cat to call his own.

November 5th @ 6PM
Posted by Dan's wife with the headline "Dan thinks there is NO way we can do this. I say there is. Help us out. We really want a cat named Hairy Pawturrr. If you can't like, share. Shares count too! Thanks so much everyone!!"

Hairy Pawturr … HAIRY PAWTURR! If those little kiddies weren't enough, how can you pass up on having a small kitten in this world named Hairy Pawturr!! (not to mention the HA HA to the face of the man who belittles social media). Of course, I did my part to 'like' and 'share'. I didn't think much about it until 10PM that night when I checked the photo again. It was just under 900 shares and 400 likes. I snickered and anticipated the look on Dan's face in the morning.

November 6th @ 9:30AM
The post had gone viral and it exploded to over 20,000 shares and likes—not to mention a following on the Ellen DeGeneres Facebook page. It was total insanity, but also total hilarity to hear Dan say, "Maybe I under shot it".

As if this story were not cute enough, Remi has named his new kitty Hairyette Pawturr. OMG!!!!!!!!
