Time flies by.
Most people use this statement when talking about their kids. However, it usually applies more to animals. As we are all well aware our pets grow up much faster than humans. It is probably because they don’t live as long as humans and that means we never have as much time with them as we think. Within a single year, a cat or a dog become fully grown adults. And the size difference is always quite surprising.
I mean it seems like only a few months ago when they were tiny creatures and they couldn’t even walk. But now they are jumping around throwing everything to the ground from the highest shelves. And while I am not saying that they become less cute as they grow older, I have to admit, I miss when they were tiny babies and needed our help for everything. And you can see some transformations for yourself by scrolling below.
#1 Just look at those ears!
A month ago, I didn’t know we got a horse puppy. Jeez, the amount of food she eats! Her height is 6’4’’ and apparently this isn’t the limit. Where is the switch?
#2 Hopefully the door doesn’t break.
This is Izzie. Her size has changed, but her habits haven’t.
#3 Can you believe it has only been 6 months.
#4 If this is knee-high, I don’t know anything anymore.
10 puppies were thrown into the trash heap near our house. I was told that they would grow up to be somewhere around knee-high. I went there, put my hand in the box, and chose whoever grabbed my finger first. Hanzo is still growing.
#5 I guess the cat still likes to get on people’s shoulders.
#6 Are we sure they didn’t change the slipper?
#7 I especially love the colourful bows.
#8 Such a beautiful doggo.
Reign has grown so much in a year. My little nugget.
#9 There is only a 10-month difference between these two pictures.
#10 In only one year, this doggo sure became a fluffy boy.
#11 All of them grow into their big ears.
Sylvester’s transformation! We found this ugly duckling on the street and now, he’s truly a beautiful swan.
#12 In 2 years, his snout certainly became more boopable.
It honestly feels like they grow up in a blink of an eye. I remember the day I brought my kitty home. He was just a tiny thing and so timid. But now he loves jumping up on high shelves and throwing everything to the ground and asking for nose boops. However, this is one of those things that is the most rewarding when it comes to being a pet owner. You grow old alongside them and who doesn’t want that?
#13 Just look at that smile!
This is my buddy, Oakley, 9 months apart. He’s a silly boy.
#14 I guess they watered him daily.
Over 3 years our flower has bloomed, and he makes us happy with his beauty and wonderful character.
#15 Who needs a body cushion when you’ve got such a fluffy doggo?
Our Saint Bernard, Dudley, when he was 11 months and when he was one year old. If I lifted him every day, I’d become a powerlifter in a year!
#16 He still loves his toy.
My boy, Wrigley, the day my wife and I adopted him and 2 years later.
#17 Such a beautiful cat she grew up to be.
Katyuna when she was 4 hours old and at a year old. Her mission is to bite and scratch all the bipeds, drop everything, declare war on the Plastic Bag Monster, and win. The peak of her creativity was when I sat down for lunch and found clods of soil mixed with ivy fragments falling on me and my food. We love this pest.
#18 I bet nobody expected this.
The beagle still lays on top of the chihuahua years later… It has become a problem.
#19 Are we sure this is the same dog?
This is Leia, my Samoyed and Collie mix. The photos were taken on the day we brought her home and 10 months later
#20 Their friendship is truly adorable.
4 years ago, we decided that we were missing a fluffy creature at home. We saw these kids, and then everything happened in a blur. These 2 dumplings grew up, and they still sleep nose to nose.
#21 He looks more raccoon than a dog.
A white raccoon dog named Vovchik. From a small puppy who was supposed to become a hat, he turned into a fat and happy sausage.
#22 Cats love taking over the bed.
A neighbor’s cat gave birth in our woodshed. We kept one kitten for ourselves and named him Pafnutia. Soon, he’ll be 7 years old. He is fluffy, has a long tail, and takes up most of the bed.
#23 It doesn’t matter what breed he is at the end of the day.
We adopted him when he was a month-old baby. In his first days at home, he was afraid of our cat. At first, we thought we had a Jack Russell terrier, then we hoped that he was a beagle. Now he is a big fool, who will soon be a year old, and he’s still growing.
#24 he looks quite proud of himself here.
We adopted Thor 8 months ago. He is a cross between a Great Dane and an Akita, and he just keeps growing and gaining muscle mass.
