          Today marks International Cat Day - and what better way to celebrate and raise awareness about the beloved felines, than viewing heartwarming images of rescue pets before and after finding a new home.

          Proud pet owners from across the globe shared their touching photographs of rescue cats prior and following adoption to Reddit.

          Bored Panda rounded up some of the best examples from the Before and After Pictures of Adopted Animals subreddit.
