Look at how frail and tiny the cat was before finding their home. Now look at this cutie, they are plump, well-fed, and look incredibly comfortable on that pillow. Talk about a serious glo’ up.

In the before photo you can tell that the cat has been severely neglected and left to its own devices. Now with the proper care this cat has a happy and healthy looking face and nothing can beat that. Just take a look at those eyes.

There’s nothing better than a cuddle buddy to lay up in bed with. However, it seems that these two have really outgrown their pillows and blankets. Still, no matter how old they get they seem to love getting tucked in.

These two were just little babies when they got rescued. They love playing in boxes together and despite being just a tad too big, they still find a way to squeeze in and have fun anyway.

12. Snuggly

Is there any sweeter sight than a cat enjoying his nap time? This little fella seems to have outgrown his pillow but not his sleeping patterns. Seems like that pillow is too comfy to let go of.

11. Hanging Around

Talk about having a really chill hang out spot. This cat has got his spot figured out and he’s not giving it up for anything. Seems like its getting just a tad bit weighed down though.

10. Photo Ready

He had dreams of becoming a photographer, but these days he’s the one getting his photo taken. This cutie sure knows how to pose for the camera.

9. Chilling

First, he was far too tiny for his sofa. These days, he’s grown into it quite well. With a stylish sofa like that to relax on we don’t blame this cat for laying around all day.

8. Squeaky Clean

This is a classic case of “if I fits I sits.” This cat wasn’t going to give up his favorite hang out spot just because of a little growth spurt.

7. Sibling Love

There’s nothing quite like sibling love and these two cats showcase that well. From kittens to cats, these two look absolutely lovely and happy to be in each other’s company.

6. Internet Cat

This cat obviously has a serious Internet addiction that started at a young age. We hope his owner made sure to save all of his work before this cat presses delete!

5. Pancake

Pancake had a pretty bad injury that she acquired when she was a kitten. However, as she got older the little scar went away. Now she looks absolutely stunning. 

4. Superman

This cat knows comfort when he sees it. Who could deny the awesomeness of a superman chair? This cat knows a good thing when he sees it and won’t grow out of it easily.

3. Best Toy

Who needs a new toy when you have the best toy ever? Since this cat was a kitten he’d been smitten with this one toy and he has no plans of getting a new one.

2. Chair Fun

Who can deny the fun of sitting in a spinny chair? This cat seems to be taking up way more room than he previously did but he’s still having the time of his life.
