Adorable Kittens Allowed To Roam Around Aquarium
With public places around the globe closed due to coronavirus, many zoos, aquariums and other attractions are completely empty.
Which means one aquarium in Georgia was able to host a private, VIP tour for a group of kittens - and they had the time of their lives.
Due to the ongoing pandemic, the Georgia Aquarium is currently closed to the public, however all of the animals and species are still being well looked after and cared for by members of staff.
And with no humans in the building, the Atlanta Humane Society decided to bring five adorable kittens to the aquarium for a special tour.
Nemo, Dory, Guppy, Bubbles and Marlin had a lovely day out at the aquarium, staring inquisitively at the fish tanks and placing their teeny paws on the glass.
They look totally mystified by the fish and can be seen tiptoeing around the aquarium, exploring and investigating.
"The Georgia Aquarium is right up the street from us," said Christina Hill, a spokesperson for the Atlanta Humane Society.
"We both had to close our doors because of COVID-19, and we both wanted to bring people joy during this time.
"Bringing kittens to the aquarium seemed like a fun and different way to showcase adoptable animals.

"The videographers practiced social distancing when they were at the aquarium."
Despite the social distancing and lockdown measures, Christina explains people haven't stopped adopting new pets.
"Adoptions are actually way up," she said.
"We've had a lot of interest. From what we've heard from our peers across the country, there's been a lot of interest in adopting animals during this time.
"Because everyone is home, it's a great opportunity to acclimate your pet to your home right now. I know some places have almost run out of adoptable animals, which is amazing to see."
The little kittens are only six weeks old but soon, they'll be eligible for adoption, too.
But the kitties aren't the only ones having a fun time at the aquarium. Last week we told you how the Atlanta Humane Society also took a group of adorable puppies to the aquarium for a special tour.
The pups posed in front of the tanks, with shoals of fish swimming behind them. It really is next level cute.
