There’s not much that pet owners love more than sharing adorable pictures of their fur buddies.
Twitter user @ellle_em recently put a call out to her followers for cute before and after pictures of their cats. Using the hashtag #CatGlowUp, hundreds of people responded to Elle’s tweet with their best photos of their cats on the day they got them and now.
Some of these kitties were in pretty rough shape when they were adopted, so it’s truly heartwarming to see how happy and well-cared-for they are today! Here are a few of our favorite feline transformations.
1. Little “Owen Wilson” has come a long way.
2. Turnip went from bony to beautiful.
3. Still adorable after all these years.
4. We love a chunky fur baby!
5. She finally grew into her ears.
6. Bean is living his best life FIV-free.
7. Look how tiny she was!
8. Wow, what a transformation!
9. Once a handsome orange boy, always a handsome orange boy.
10. Some things never change.
11. Look at those gorgeous eyes.
12. She looks a lot happier (and less bitey) now.
13. Can’t. Handle. The. Cuteness!
14. They went from tiny floofs to house panthers.
15. Patrick still looks pretty sweet to us! Just as fluffy as the day he was brought home.
What a difference a few years and a lot of love and attention can make! Remember to never judge a book by its cover because all of these sweet pets started off looking a lot different than they do today. Doesn’t this make you want to run to your local animal shelter and adopt your new best friend?
