57 People Show How Their Beloved Cats Have Changed Since Being Adopted (New Pics)

For animal lovers, there’s nothing quite like seeing a once-stray or neglected pet find their forever home; the glow-up a critter can go through in the hands of a caring owner has the power to convince us that the world is not a dark, cruel place but rather a source of love and hope.

So we at Bored Panda would like to invite you to take a look at one of our favorite subreddits, r/BeforeNAfterAdoption. More specifically, its felines. This place has plenty of then-and-now pictures to showcase the transformative power of adoption! From scared and undernourished cats to healthy and playful family members, these images can be just what you need to start the week with a smile on your face.
