We've seen a variety of species go on a private tour of aquariums and the moment has finally arrived. A moment we've all been waiting for -- kittens! 

Atlantic Humane Society, who brought their pups to the same aquarium a few weeks ago, decided it was only fair that their kittens got the same experience! 

So while Georgia Aquarium has been closed to the public, these furry felines got the private tour of a lifetime! 

And their reactions? As adorable as could be. Watch the kittens get up close and personal with all the sea life at the Georgia Aquarium. 

Currently, these kittens are not available for adoption, but you can see all of the animals up for adoption at the Atlanta Humane Society during this time at Atlanta Humane Society.
