When you see your beloved cat every day, you probably don't notice how much it has grown up.  As family members, they grow and age together with us.

Recently, we asked you to share your then and now pictures of cats growing up and it's time to announce the best pics. We also added some best finds from the Internet, but if you want even more pics, be sure to see part 1 of our cat series.

Be sure to vote for your favorite, and if you missed the post where we asked for submissions, feel free to add them to this post!

Fur darkens in animals as they get older. When I got my husky she was completely white, now she has loads of gray markings on her back+ face
