Tonya Andrews’ beloved 16 y/o cat Blondie passed away right in her arms as she was on the way to the vet. The Joshua High School teacher was crushed. “I cried pretty much every period that next day at school,” she told the Huffington Post.
But her students knew exactly how to lift her spirits. They walked in her class with a bunch of flowers, homemade cupcakes…and 2 kittens! “I was smiling so big by then because I could feel the love of the class,” said Andrews. “But then, Rachel walked in holding two precious kittens.”
At first, Andrews thought that the kittens were brought just to play with. “Then she held them out to me and said they were mine…my heart can now experience happiness again.”
