How would you describe each of their personalities?

Dash – a bit of a snob but loves a belly rub and 1:1 attention as a retired show cat, he also loves the camera 📸 so always perks up when the camera is on him.

Rafa – is a very intelligent young man, will do ANYTHING for a treat, and is always hungry. Loves cuddling in bed when it suits him but is a bit more adventurous and independent during the day.

What are their favorite hobbies?

Dash – loves sunbathing on the balcony, watching Meowmy work, eating his greens, and chewing on nail files
Rafa – Love singing (usually at closed doors), playing fetch with his pink birdie, chasing flies, and watching lizards on the balcony
