Meet two furry feline siblings residing in Sydney, Australia, who are always up for some fun and attention. These charming Burmese cats, Dash and Rafa, are the definition of their breed – captivating, comical, and beyond adorable. Dash, the older of the two brothers, is a retired show cat with striking features, while Rafa is a star in his own right. When I stumbled upon their Instagram profile, I couldn’t resist their charm. If you’re a fan of gorgeous brown-coated cats that love to pose for the camera, then you’ll go gaga over these two! Thanks to their cat mom, I’m thrilled to share their stories and pictures with all the cat enthusiasts at Cattitude Daily.
What inspired you to pick their names?
I decided to name my pets Dash and Rafa. Dash is a tribute to Lord Dashwood from Jane Austen’s Sense Sensibility, while Rafa was named after the tennis superstar Rafael Nadal, with a little feline twist in his last name – Na’Meow.
How do they interact with each other?
I adore the bond between my pets. They enjoy snuggling up together, holding hands while they sleep. Before taking a nap, Dash takes it upon himself to give Rafa a thorough bath and grooming session.
How would you describe the personalities of these two furry friends? Dash, a retired show cat, may come off as a bit of a snob at first, but he actually loves getting personal attention and belly rubs. He also has a soft spot for the camera and tends to perk up whenever it’s around. On the other hand, Rafa is a smart young cat who will do whatever it takes to get treats, and he’s always hungry. While he enjoys cuddling in bed from time to time, he’s also quite independent during the day and loves exploring his surroundings.
When it comes to hobbies, Dash loves soaking up the sun on the balcony, keeping a close eye on his owner while she works, munching on greens, and even nibbling on nail files. Rafa, on the other hand, is quite the performer and loves singing (mostly behind closed doors). He also enjoys playing fetch with his favorite pink birdie, chasing after flies, and watching the lizards on the balcony.
