Some even exhibit separation anxiety. Reading on the Pits forum of pits kept together for long periods then being separated and showing signs of stress. Put them back together and they settle back down. Definitely some sign of emotional distress.
My '09 male bull Alfonzo gets very upset if I take his sister Zoey out of the cage for too long. They have always been kept together since they were babies. Zoey seems to be less prone to upset, although she will watch for him to be returned from the feeding tub, then she will go under the hide and they will relax together. Awhile back Alfonzo had a stomach ailment and I tried separating them so I could treat him more easily. No way! He got so agitated I had to right away put him back with her. He recovered nicely. I don't think he would have got well if I had insisted upon separation.
