Rachel was the name of my grandma. Rachibou is the African name version of Rachel.
Lex had his name from the Cattery I bought him, and I liked the name.

Lex is very active, and playful, he is very social and likes and needs a lot of cuddles. He is also very hungry all the time.
Rachel is rather a sophisticated lady, with a lot of class and style. She is also extremely intelligent and does not like photoshoots. She rarely needs cuddles but is also very social. She talks a lot.

Favorite hobbies: chasing each other, birdwatching, taking naps, and keeping hoomans company.

Only for the first 48 hours when Lex entered the house, Rachel was under extreme stress. Now they are besties.

What’s something special you’d like for people to know about Rachibou & Lex?

Rachibou lost almost 1 kilo after meeting Lex but is now in top shape and also much happier than being the only cat in the house. Lex can sometimes be a hooligan when he gets too enthusiastic about things.

I’d like to give a special “thank you” to Rachibou and Lex’s hooman, Piet, for allowing me to share their story and photos with all of the Cattitude Daily readers. For more on this cute pair of British Shorthair kitty cats, be sure to check them out here on Instagram.
