Meet Malley


This is our new baby kitten (ahem, baby duck) Mallard. Or Malley for short. He's now 10 weeks old (today) and he moved in with us exactly two weeks ago. I thought I'd put up a blog post all about him as I'm sure you've seen him all over my instagram feed - he's been the center of attention!


As you can see on the photos at the top his eyes have now turned a lovely aqua green but last week they were bright blue! Below are some photos of him settling in. We have a giant green tent like thing which is a playpen designed for small animals. It means we can shut him in there at night to sleep and take him out into the garden in it too. He's very cheeky and very curious. He loves following our other 4 cats around, although they are not so keen on him just yet. Mal feels a light as a bird but he's very robust and enjoys leaping around the living room and wrestling with a human hand. He also loves helping out when you're working on the laptop and will use his tiny claws to pull himself straight up your legs.


It's nice to have a new member or the family and hopefully the other cats will accept him as their baby brother soon. Every morning I rush downstairs to see him and it brightens my day when he climbs on to my lap for a snooze (or a wrestle.) I can tell he's going to be a beautiful adult cat as well as being a cute kitten. He's still very fluffy and I don't really want him to loose his baby fur - it's so soft!

  1. Oh my goodness he is SO teeny-tiny! My husband & I so desperately want a cat (he grew up with a cat & misses being a cat-owner!) but while we're living with in-laws it's impossible because my father in law is severely allergic! We find ourselves living vicariously through cat-owning friends and the internet, so this post is like mecca for us. We've just spent ages aww-ing and coo-ing over your gorgous photos!

  16. Awh, he is too cute!! I'm definitely not showing this post to my boyfriend as he already wants a kitten and this will just make him want one even more. Though it is slightly making me want one. He is just adorable, definitely looking forward to seeing more cute pictures.

  24. He's SO little and cute! I hope the cats welcome him into the family, felines can be so stubborn, my cat took some time getting used to a new jumpy kitten and it was her son! Now is such a great time to get a kitty cat too as they have the summer to explore the garden. xo

  29. So adorable - but you got him so early! Aren't kittens supposed to be with their mothers until at least twelve weeks? Unless he doesn't have one... :(

    1. We did get him early, most places will only give you kittens at 12 weeks but other people believe 8 weeks is sufficient. He settled in so quickly and didn't appear to be missing his mother at all! Plus he has lots of other cat attention as well as human love to keep him happy :)
      (also fully litter trained and on to dry cat food by 8 weeks how amazing is that!) x
