Dan Urbano, a married father of two from Newton, Mass., learned his lesson on just how powerful the Internet can be, all thanks to a cat.

丹·厄尔巴诺来自美国马塞诸塞州纽顿市,已婚而且是两个孩子的父亲。最近他终于领略了网络的强大力量,这一切都归功于一只猫。

When Urbano’s 7-year-old son Remi kept pleading for a pet cat, he came up with a bet he admittedly thought wouldn’t go anywhere. If a picture of Remi and his 1-year-old sister, Evelyn, pleading for a cat got 1,000 likes on Facebook, he would buy the siblings a cat.

七岁的儿子雷米不断提出请求想要一只宠物猫,厄尔巴诺想出了一个条件,他承认当时自己觉得这个肯定成不了。爸爸提出的条件是:如果雷米和他一岁的妹妹伊芙琳恳求猫的照片能够在Facebook上得到1000个“赞”,那他就给孩子们买一只猫。

“We figured our friends and maybe their friends would be nice and kind and share with each other,” Urbano’s wife, and Remi and Evelyn’s mom, Marisa, said on “Good Morning America.”

“我们估计是因为我们的朋友或者他们的朋友都很好心,互相分享照片”, 厄尔巴诺的妻子、两个孩子的母亲玛丽莎在参加《早安美国》节目时这样说道。

Marisa Urbano took the photo of Remi, alongside Eveyln, holding a sign that read, “Hey FACEBOOK! My sister & I REALLY want a CAT! My Papa PROMISES we can get one if we can get 1000 LIKES! PLEASE like this picture! Thank you .”

玛丽莎·厄尔巴诺帮雷米和伊芙琳拍了一张照,雷米手里举着一个牌子,上面写着:“嘿!Facebook!我妹妹和我非常非常想要一只猫!爸爸答应我们如果我们能得到1000个‘赞’,就能拥有一只猫!希望你们会喜欢这张照片!谢谢!”

She posted it to her Facebook page Wednesday and just hours later, according to Marisa, the family knew they’d be getting a cat. Less than one week later, the picture has more than 110,000 likes on Marisa’s Facebook page and has been shared more than 100,000 times.

周三她把照片贴到她的Facebook页面上,据她说,仅仅几小时以后,这家人就知道他们会有一只猫了。在不到一周之后,玛丽莎主页上的这张照片已经获得超过11万的“赞” ,并被分享超过10万次。

“Never, ever did we think this was going to happen,” Marisa Urbano told “GMA.”

“我们从来从来没想过事情会发展成这样。” 玛丽莎这样告诉《早安美国》的记者。

Over the weekend the Urbanos welcomed the new addition to their family, a female cat they have named “Hairietta L. Pawturr.” The original plan was to name the cat Hairy Pawturr but when they found out “he” was a “she,” they switched it to Hairietta instead. She gained the middle initial “L” because she got so many likes on Facebook, the family says.

这周末厄尔巴诺一家迎来了他们家庭的新成员,一只名为“Hairietta L. Pawturr” 的母猫,本来的计划是叫这只猫“Hairy Pawturr ”(译者注:音似Harry Potter),但后来他们发现新成员是只母猫,因此改用“Hairietta”。这家人还解释到,猫名的中间有一个大写的“L”,这是因为她在Facebook上得到了许多“like”。

Harrietta was selected by the family as their perfect pet at a local animal shelter, the Gifford Cat Shelter.

Harrietta 是这家人在当地的动物收容所“吉福德猫之家”挑选的,相信她会是他们家最完美的宠物。
