At the risk of becoming an online shrine to all things feline following our reporting of everything from cat sushi, Attack on Titan: cat edition and multiple posts about Japan’s own feline star, Maru, when we discovered this series of 12 photos showing the growth of a kitten as it goes from barely being able to see over the edge of the scales to struggling to fit in, we couldn’t help but share.
Strap yourselves in for some serious cute, boys and girls.
Our adorable photo journey starts off when this Japanese netizen’s kitten is absolutely tiny and can hardly keep his eyes open. Looking at the scales, we can see that he weights just 70 grams, which is barely the weight of a small block of cheese. (Well, unless you live in Japan that is!)
▼ At 310 grams, the little one is starting to get more adventurous. From hereon in there’s no stopping him as he grows into a healthy young cat.
▼ Mum’s around to watch his progress too.
▼ Definitely growing up. Look at that serious expression!
▼ At 825 grams, he’s struggling to fit in the bowl.
▼ And clearly has better things to do.
I think we’re gonna need a bigger boat…
