“Buttons and Bramble are inseparable. Neither could cope without the other, but Buttons would be completely lost without Bramble at his side,” Miriam Battye, small animals supervisor at Raystede, told The Dodo. “Buttons is deaf and partially blind and also has brain damage, so Bramble looks after him.”
Staffers at Raystede knew Bramble was a sweetheart who loved affection when she first arrived at the shelter. But it was only when they matched her up with Buttons that they discovered just how caring she really was. Which, as it turned out, was just what Buttons needed.
“He came in with a very bad head tilt and tested positive for E. cuniculi,” Battye said.
