15 photos showing us how kittens grow up into handsome cats

There’s only one thing you can be sure about when you bring a new kitten home: that kitten is going to grow up into a cat. Remember how cute and little your kitten was when you first brought him or her home? Those tiny kitten cries and little teeth that could hardly leave a mark grow up and mature at a rapid pace. Before long your sweet little kitten is no longer so little, and you’ve got a full grown cat on your hands, with teeth capable of breaking flesh, and claws capable of ruining furniture.

The more your cat grows, so too does the loving bond you share. Cats become a part of the family as you develop wonderful memories and traditions. Oftentimes pets grow and change simultaneously with us, creating an unbreakable bond to treasure for life.

To help remind you how much your own cat has grown and changed, here are some adorable before and after photos of cats growing up.
