For all you cat lovers out there, this post was inspired by a recent viral video of a mother cat hugging her baby kitten. The video’s only been online for two days but has so far generated more than 10 million views (that’s almost half of the views of the 10th most popular cat video of all time).
Although it could be argued that the growing popularity of social sites such as Facebook and Twitter have allowed virals to spread much faster today than they did 5 years ago.
In any case, if you haven’t seen it already, here you go. Enjoy.
