CINCINNATI — The Cincinnati Zoo & Botanical Garden posted a before and after picture of Redd, one of their cheetahs.

Redd and his two sisters, Cathryn and Willow, were born prematurely at the Cincinnati zoo in 2016. The three cubs were in critical care for the first month they were born.

When Redd was born, he required a feeding tube and had to be shaved. To support proper growth and weight gain, Redd was dressed up in t-shirts and tiny turtlenecks.

You can see from the zoo’s Facebook that Redd has had quite the glow up.
