Not sure about cats so much...

With dogs, it would depend a: on the breed and b: on how you define "adult." If it's sexual maturity (ability to reproduce), then about 6 months for both cats & dogs. If it's full size and mental maturity - well little dogs are pretty much done growing by the time they're a year old. Big dogs can mature very slowly & not really be physically & mentally mature for 3+ years.

Interesting question!
