Connection error with the requests module

I keep getting error that says: Opps, try again. did you create a new variable named kittens? And in the compiler window it says:

Traceback (most recent call last):
File "python", line 4, in <module>
ConnectionError: [Errno -2] Name or service not known

This is my code:

import requests
#Make a GET request here and assign the result to kittens:
kittens=requests.get("http://placekittens.com/")
print kittens.text[559:1000]

It should be placekitten.com rather than placekittens.com. Just remove the s.
