After Mrs. Andrews, a beloved math teacher at Joshua High School in Texas, 16 year-old cat Blondie, passed away, her students decided to surprise her.
Student Rachel Hanhart and a few friends wanted to cheer her up after they noticed her crying.
“She was sitting at her desk and we were all just doing our work,” Rachel said. “She began crying and we asked her what was wrong. She told us that her 16-year-old cat had died.”
Rachel’s mom searched online and was able to find two kittens who needed homes. Rachel brought the kittens, along with cupcakes and flowers to the school.
“We all were emotional before even entering the room,” Rachel said. “Not upset by any means, but more anxious than anything.” That’s when the students whipped out a camera, and boy did they get a wonderful reaction.
As soon as Mrs. Andrews saw the kittens, she immediately began to break down. Rachel said that everyone in the classroom got misty-eyed.
“Mrs. Andrews began to cry because of the flowers, but then she saw the kittens and I don’t even know how to describe her reaction,” Rachel said. “It was amazing. I think at that point everyone had tears in their eyes.”
Mrs. Andrews named her two little kitties Missy and Girlie.
