Sometimes a rescue animal just needs a little TLC to really shine. When they’re living on the streets or in a shelter, it can be hard to see their personalities come through. Every day is simply survival. But when they finally get adopted, pets can really let loose and be their best selves.
It’s amazing what adoption can do for a rescue pet, like a cat. The transformations that some animals endure is incredible!
Thankfully, there’s a whole subreddit dedicated to pets and their transformations from before adoption to after adoption! The subreddit r/BeforeNAfterAdoption features before and after photos of pet adoption.
Scrolling through the posts, it’s incredible to see the transformations some animals go through in the best possible way.
Check out 10 before and after photos of cats below:
1. At first, it’s unclear how much hair this little cat will have. But in the end, she has the most gorgeous coat and markings!
2. Merlin started as a helpless little kitten. Now, he’s a gorgeous cat with two different eye colors! Talk about stunning.
My most recent rescue baby Merlin’s before and after, cannot thank the rescue centre we adopted from enough. Last photo is him with his sister, our other rescue, Evelyn ????

3. This little guy went from full-on scruffy to purely domesticated.
4. “Best thing I EVER got from a Whataburger.”
Biscuit: Best thing I EVER got from a Whataburger. He lived on the Texas streets for 2-3 years and survived the big freeze. So happy my son wanted Whataburger that night at 1 am & I am so happy I said I would take him. Biscuit is the most spoiled now ????????♥️♥️♥️????????????

5. This orange tabby cat is unrecognizable in his before and after photos.
6. “From a scrawny kitten with fleas to current polite angel.”
8. “From terrified orphan stray to fluffy queen in one year.”
9. This cat may have had a rough start in life, but now he’s living his best life.
10. Gremlin the cat may be all grown up now, but he’s still got that crazy look in his eyes!
I am broadly interested in how human activities influence the ability of wildlife to persist in the modified environments that we create.
Specifically, my research investigates how the configuration and composition of landscapes influence the movement and population dynamics of forest birds. Both natural and human-derived fragmenting of habitat can influence where birds settle, how they access the resources they need to survive and reproduce, and these factors in turn affect population demographics. Most recently, I have been studying the ability of individuals to move through and utilize forested areas which have been modified through timber harvest as they seek out resources for the breeding and postfledging phases. As well I am working in collaboration with Parks Canada scientists to examine in the influence of high density moose populations on forest bird communities in Gros Morne National Park. Many of my projects are conducted in collaboration or consultation with representatives of industry and government agencies, seeking to improve the management and sustainability of natural resource extraction.
