Kittens are the sweetest thing on the planet. Unfortunately, some people overvalue kittens— and as a result, it makes full-grown cats much less appreciated. Cats, like children, seem to carry their unique faces with them as they age. Even though they may be a bit bigger, they still have those adorable expressions, furry coats, and smart eyes. To show people everywhere that cats ARE just as cute as kittens, we’ve collected a few before-and-after cat shots so you can compare for yourself!
