Actually we can't because we don't know where that kitten is or if it's alive (and thereby possible to kill in a painful way). The concept though, is very creative and tempting . I found this Swedish article here which leads to the page of some genius with a bunny.
I don’t want to eat Toby, he is my friend, and he has always been the most loving, adorable pet. However, God as my witness, I will devour this little guy unless I receive 50,000$ USD into my account from donations or purchase of merchandise. You can help this poor, helpless bunny’s cause by making donations through my verified PayPal account by clicking on any of the Donate buttons on this site, or by purchasing merchandise at the Savetoby.com online store.
The idea of blackmailing soft hearted morons by threatening cute animals have been around for a while. At least since 1973's January issue of the National Lampoon Magazine. This from the February issue.
"LAST MONTH'S COVER: Remember it? ...The dog that was going to be killed if you didn't buy the issue? You people are really incredible. You had us kill that sweet pooch. And don't for a minute go blaming us. The choice was yours entirely. We held the gun, but you sure as hell pulled the trigger ...though there are those among you who did buy three and four issues to take up whatever slack existed. Those people are to be commended.
We at Superblog!! will try to find the cutest kitten ever and after that we'll be ready to do some business.
