Although cats can be total jerks at times, there is no denying that they grow to become more like another member of the family rather than just a pet.
Anyone that has a cat will understand that they are loving, majestic animals which is what makes these images so sad yet happy at the same time. Although it's tragic to see these cats looking so bad, it's incredible to see their transformation.
Some of these cats were literally on the brink of death, but thanks to the love and care they have received from animal shelters and their owners they have been nursed back to health.
