Why won't Codecademy see the 'kittens' variable I've created?

I've copied/pasted the exact line 4 that was suggested. Here's the full code block:

from urllib2 import urlopen

# Open http://placekitten.com/ for reading on line 4!
kittens = urlopen('http://placekitten.com/')
response = kittens.read()
body = response[559:1000]

# Add your 'print' statement here!
print body

But I keep getting an error that says, Oops, try again. Did you create a new variable called kittens?. But as you can see, in the 3rd line of actual code, there's the kittens variable being created.

But when I paste that code into my Python 2.7 interpreter, it works.

Nevermind. A simple browser refresh fixed the issue.
