Boy gets pet cat after Facebook post goes viral

Seven-year-old Remi Urbano posted a photo on Facebook saying, "Hey Facebook! My sister and I really want a cat. My papa promises we can get one if we can get 1,000 likes. Please like this picture. Thank you!"

His dad, Dan, thought the deal would be the best way to get his kids to stop asking for a cat. He was wrong.

Remi got his cat, named "Hairietta L. Pawturr" this weekend after the photo received more than 110,000 likes.
