Minet died in August 1999, Tiger was heartbroken and refused to eat for a couple
of days. He kept searching for his brother. Minet had always been "the
boss" and Tiger was at a loss without him. Fortunately, he got over it
after a while and took over leadership.
Tiger is a people lover, but he is especially fond of Ronald.When Ronald is at home, Tiger sits close to him and nibbles his ear. He always checks out Ronald's whereabouts and isn't content until he can lay upside down on Ronald's lap, purring loudly.

attached to each other.
