50 Wholesome Before And After Pictures Of Cats Growing Up

There is a certain joy in growing up with a pet. Something about having an ally, a friend, and a companion during all the days you do not feel your best who are there just to make sure that your bad days don’t take over. There are many people who got their pet when they were really young, like perhaps ten years old, and then when they went through puberty and became adults, not only they grew, but their pets grew too.


Like all living creatures, they age and grow old with you, and while some grow up, some just grow old. This here is a list of pets people submitted as it was a prime example of what time does to a cat owner and a cat. When they’re just babies, kittens are basically little more than handfuls of fluff and sass, but when they grow older, they become machines of predatorial naps. That’s probably the best way to describe a cat in the first place. A predatorial nap machine.
