Cats Recreate Their Kitten Photos, And You Need To Get A Load Of This Cuteness Right Meow — PHOTOS

The circle of life, y'all! I mean, at least the circle of one singular lifetime—it's pretty incredible. This is a reason why I legit enjoy #tbt on Instagram, despite its potential to get very old. (Well, for me it doesn't. Then again I'm also the kind of person who authentically enjoys looking at wedding photo albums and hearing about your dog's latest food preferences.) Add to that whole #tbt the most adorable addition of kittens (kittens are pure joy, after all) and we're golden. So here you go: Cats recreating their kitten photos, because everything goes better with felines, #tbt included.

I always forget how tiny kittens are when they first entire the planet. When I met my cat for the first time, I held this impossibly small creature close to my chest and I couldn't fathom how light he weighed. It seemed so scary to let his excruciatingly minuscule self sprint around my home, like...How did he even exist, let alone survive? Anyway, he's grown some in the past near-year, as sadly, kittens are wont to do. Although I would definitely mention with his increase in growth, my own anxiety about his safety has shrunk. Regardless, when you have this fuzzy cuteness bounding, clearly you must document it, right? In a cool series of comparisons, here are a bunch of cats recreating their baby photos:
