“She still cries every time that we watch the video again.”
One of the students, Rachel Hanhart, told BuzzFeed News that the idea began when their teacher, Tonya Andrews, broke down in front of a class of her students and told them that her 16-year-old cat had died the day before.
Hanhart’s mother searched the internet for local kittens needing a new home. The next day, the students went into class ready to surprise Andrews with her new pets. The video of the reveal has been retweeted 66,000 times.
