Hover Cat Video Helps Pet Adoption Go Viral

Via - George, the cat, beat the odds. He made it out of the shelter and found a new home with Dan Harris, weekend anchorman at Good Morning America.

Practically, that also means George has the apartment to himself for the whole morning. According to the ASPCA, the talented little cat has used his free time to star in the new Hover Cat video, which launched on Good Morning America the second weekend in June.

The video, which shows George home alone and showing off his "special skills," has spread to YouTube, where it collected 800,000 hits on its first weekend, Kymberlie Adams, of the ASPCA, said.

The video also became the centerpiece of the "making pet adoption go viral" campaign, which launched recently with interviews live streamed from the ASPCA's New York City headquarters, according to Olivia Melikhov, the ASPCA's social media manager.

"We're hoping that this video will help spread the adoption message far and wide to make a difference in the lives of millions of homeless cats and dogs around the country," she said.
