These two are some shy lovebugs. They came from a hoarding situation and are working on being out in the open during the daytime. During the night, they come out and love to be petted, rubbed, scratched, and cuddled with. They also enjoy playing, running around, and exploring together. It's also amusing to watch them try to eat from the same bowl, as Fezzik will begin eating, then Inigo will go from his bowl over to the other to try and fit in. These two aren't the biggest fan of being picked up longer than from the floor to a chair or couch.
Inigo is the younger of the two, and more adventurous. He has started coming out during the daytime, wanting to play with others and wanting to explore. He is still timid though and will shy away if you approach him. He will love your lap though if you let him come to you on his terms, leaving a hand down for him to rub against or patting beside you. Inigo does seem to be a tree cat as well, preferring high spaces over low. He would need vertical space to explore.
Fezzik is more of the shy one and slower to trust. He will hide all day and come out at night for pets, play, and attention. During the day, he likes a nice cozy spot for himself to lay, snooze, and relax. His bark is worse than his bite during the day. If you go to pet him during the day, you'll likely be greeted with a hiss and some growling, though it soon turns to purring if you give him some slow scratches under the chin and on his head. He has not swiped or bit once, despite all the display he puts up. Inigo will follow him around everywhere during the night as well, even to the point of pushing Fezzik off the bed because Inigo wants to rub up against him.
These two will need some time to open up, but are already showing signs of being great companions to whomever wants to bring them into their home.
