Archie Update

So this little furball is now 11 weeks old, and he's definitely getting bigger and heavier and... more vicious. Seriosuly this guy has discovered his teeth and claws in a big way! If you want to stroke him 80% of the time he thinks this is an invitation to play fight - he whacks you with his paws then sinks his little teeth in to your skin!

When he's running round, full of energy, he can get from the floor to your lap in seconds. My new boots have tiny little scratches in them and at least 2 pairs of jeans have tiny loops of thread coming out where Archie's claws have dug in.

He is super-duper cute though, so he gets away with everything!

We have to be very careful when opening the cupboard under the stairs, as more than once there's been the sound of a kerfuffle from the inside and Archie's come running out when we open the door! He's still so tiny so he can sneak in without being noticed. He likes hiding in things, and boxes, just to prove the stereotype that cats like boxes!

He likes climbing - he's always up and down the stairs or wandering around on someone's shoulders...

You can already see how much he's grown in these two photos! I think Mark is modelling him beautifully, me, not so much!
Apologies that these photos are phone pictures - a lot are saved from snapchat and the rest are taken in a hurry while Archie remains still for a millisecond!

Hope you like this little update, for more kitten pictures and videos check out my instagram (there's a really really really cute video of him squeaking/yawning)
