Time flies by quite fast.
We always like to throw around this saying as sometimes it feels like years pass by in a blur and you are still standing exactly where you started. However, this is especially true for cats, as animals have a different perception of time than us because they do not live as long as humans do. When we adopt or rescue an animal, we know that time is fleeting and one day they will be gone.
I suppose that is exactly what makes the years so enjoyable. But today we are here to celebrate the change that comes with growing up. These kittens had beautiful transformations and I can hardly believe that all of these kitties grew up to be so majestic. From long furry tails to chonky fur, no one could have imagined this. As many of these kittens are rescues, their health wasn’t in the best shape when they started but thankfully all of them ended up healthy and living a full life.
And you can see those transformations for yourself by scrolling below.
#1 Nimbus sure has changed a lot.
#2 A beautiful chimera cat.
#3 Malnourished to majestic.
#4 Two furry babies.
#5 Loki looks exactly like a puma.
#6 Still as close as ever.
#7 The bowtie just adds that extra something.
He was infested with fleas, anemic, and starving. One look at his little face and I knew had to adopt him. Fast forward 5 years, he’s now a confident, happy, healthy boi with a career in modeling.
#8 Two new friends.
#9 He may be toothless but he is still a beauty.
#10 The family of cats.
#11 Are we sure this is even a cat?

#13 The circle of life continues.
#14 He only got cuter.
#15 They grew up so much in only six months.
#16 This cat sure loves her grandma.
#17 Maybe they put the cat bed in the dryer for too long?
#18 The tail might be bigger than the cat.
#19 These twins can certainly hear each other’s thoughts.
#20 We require a bigger couch now.
#21 Winter is coming and he is ready.
#22 The smile on the face says it all.
#23 Are all those gifts for him?
#24 That is one big cat beard.
#25 He is helping her work.
#26 These two were meant to be together.
It seems most small animals mature pretty quickly. It is probably because an animal needs to be ready to take care of their newer young ones. And if the previous litter is still feeding, the mother cat won’t be able to take care of her next litter. This may sound weird but that is just how it works. However, this also means we never have enough time with our lovely pets. As cats and dogs usually mature within a year and live much fewer years than an average human.
#27 He might have been a micro kitten but not anymore!
