Hi there, I'm Mali, a delicate and sweet-natured kitten with a heart as soft as my fur. I am quite skittish; loud sounds send me straight to my donut bed – my safe haven. I've seamlessly integrated into a home filled with both cats and dogs, surprising everyone with my gentle nature. Every morning, I graciously allow the resident dog to give me a kiss, showcasing the trust and affection that has developed between us. I’m not the most playful kitten, despite all my foster mom’s attempts at engaging me in playtime. However, I am a sweetheart and love bonding with my humans through pets and cuddles. I often purr myself to sleep on my foster mom’s lap as she pets me. My qualities make me the perfect companion for those seeking a quiet, loving feline friend.


Mali is from a local impound. If you are interested in getting to know this animal better, please fill out an adoption application. An adoption application is the best way to show your interest in an animal and is not a binding contract.

Want to adopt a kitten? We highly recommend you consider bringing home two instead of one! Adopting kittens in pairs has been proven to be beneficial for cats’ emotional and behavioral well-being and greatly improves the likelihood of long-term adopter happiness as a result. Adopting more than one kitten also reduces the risk of “Single Kitten Syndrome” (also known as Tarzan Syndrome), a symptom of under-socialization during a kitten’s most formative weeks. Kittens who are under-socialized may develop aggressive tendencies toward both other animals and humans as they grow, creating lifelong behavioral issues for owners.
