The video, which has since garnered over 800.000 views and nearly 80,000 likes, features a series of clips showing Kurt's tender interactions with the fake kitten.

"Kurt needs and wants a friend. Do it for Kurt!" Another comment read, "Kurt is ready to be a father. You can be Grandpa. Kurt has expressed his wishes. It'd just be cruel to deny him now."
