Pepper's Siamese sister, Jasmine, laid by her side while she was sick.
This photo was taken when my wonderful pet rat, Pepper, was sick. She lay in a basket on a heating pad. Her Siamese sister knew she was sick and wanted to be by her side. Unfortunately, Pepper passed away a few days later.
I honestly believe they liked one another because there was always contact between them on a daily basis. Jasmine was really upset when Pepper took ill. Who would believe natural enemies would become so close?
