PM Harper with Stanley, and wife Laureen
Back in May, Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper and his family adopted a kitten from the Ottawa Humane Society, and made headlines when they asked the public to vote on the tiny tabby's name.
Since announcing the winning designation to be Stanley (a nod to the Vancouver Canucks Stanley Cup bid this year), Harper has been periodically updating his Facebook page with glimpses of the kitten's progress, complete with images from a criminally adorable photo shoot, and a YouTube video of him happily romping around his new home.
So, what is it with politicians showing their pussycats on the internet lately? I think it might be time for the Obamas to bring home a feline companion for Bo!
