Most kids love animals and if they do not have a pet, will beg and plead with mom and dad to let them have one. We all know that despite all the promises, nine times out of ten its the parents who have to change the kitty’s litterbox, or do the ‘poop-scopping’ in the yard! And it is hard to not give in to the relentless begging, and this dad never stood a chance against such powerful forces. After his 7-year-old son kept bugging about getting him a cat, Dan Urbano told his children they could get one if 1,000 people liked their photo on their mother Marisa’s Facebook page. Take a guess how long it took for the 2 adorable kids to get 1,000 likes on Facebook?
It took just hours to chalk up the likes required and a week later, the photo now has been liked 110,000 times. So yes, the Urbano family has adopted their new cat from a local animal shelter!
Now that the ‘pet debate’ has been settled….next up will be the ‘playing sports & musical instruments’ challenge! I know because I have been there, done that too!
What kinds of deals have you made with your kids n order to get a pet?
