I would say the first is Echeveria 'Imbricata', the second Echeveria purpusorum and the third Graptopetalum paraguayense.
Obsessive Crassulaceae lover, especially Aeoniums but also grow, Aloes, Agaves, Haworthias and a select number of Cacti.

The third one looks to be Graptopetalum paraguayense.

Yes that would explain it! Our cat is banned from the greenhouses, although she will sneak in if I forget to put the trellis in the doorway.
