The couple spend time with animals over the weekend

Zayn Malik is clearly an animal person.

The One Direction singer, 21, shared a super-cute photo of himself cuddling a very furry cat while partying at The Asian Awards at London’s Grosvenor House on Friday night.

Zayn looked hot in a smart suit at the bash, where he hung out with attendees including musician Naughty Boy and producer Shakil Ashraf.

‘Asian Power. @zaynmalik @NaughtyBoyMusic @shakavelimusic it’s about time. 🙂 #theasianawards,’ Tweeted Naughty Boy, 29, along with a photo of the trio.

Zayn and fiancée Perrie Edwards – who got engaged last August – own their own kitten named Prada and are also parents to a cute dog called Hatchi.

Little Mix‘s Perrie, 20, uploaded a funny Twitter snap of Hatchi at the weekend, which saw him looking like he had protruding teeth after getting yoghurt around his mouth.

‘Hatchi ate some yogurt only to find he developed goofy teeth! #BasilBrush Haha boom boom! Perrie Tweeted Perrie.
