Owning a pet can change your life forever.

They become a huge part of your life. Once you adopt a cat or kitten, they aren’t an animal to you anymore. The pet becomes a part of your family. It is the same as adopting a human child. You now have the responsibility of a furry life. You have to feed it, clean it, and provide it with everything it needs. The only difference is that this baby won’t move out once it is 18. You’re stuck with them for the rest of their life. They sort of dedicate their whole life to you and you are the only family that they have.

The best part about adopting a kitten is watching it grow up right in front of your eyes. If you thought humans grew up fast, you haven’t seen a kitten’s growth. They become twice their size in a year! Watching them grow up really gives you joy. So here are 40 before-and-after pictures of kittens growing up to become beautiful cats:
