Magento: Get sub categories and product count

Here, I will be showing you the code to get sub categories of a particular category and the number of products (product count) present in the sub categories.
Like, I have a category named Furniture. The sub categories under Furniture are Living Room and Bedroom. Now, I want to show the sub categories under Funiture and the products associated with the sub categories (Living Room and Bedroom).

- Living Room (4)
- Bedroom (2)
 * get current category
$currCat = Mage::registry('current_category');

 * get sub categories of current category
$collection = Mage::getModel('catalog/category')->getCategories($currCat->getEntityId());

 * looping through sub categories
 * only showing active sub categories ($cat->getIsActive())
foreach($collection as $cat) {
 if($cat->getIsActive()) {
  $category = Mage::getModel('catalog/category')->load($cat->getEntityId());

   * getting product collection for a particular category
   * applying status and visibility filter to the product collection
     * i.e. only fetching visible and enabled products
  $prodCollection = Mage::getResourceModel('catalog/product_collection')->addCategoryFilter($category);


  <a href="<?php echo $category->getUrl() ?>"><?php echo $category->getName() ?></a> (<?php echo $prodCollection->count() ?>)<br/>
