You may not think a giant cattle dog has much in common with a tiny kitten, but as you’ll see in the following touching story, there’s a perfect mate for everyone.
Ralphee is a tiny Manx kitten who was born with a neurological disorder known as feline cerebellar hypoplasia, according to Adam Cox, who posted the video below to Rumble via Wakaleo Animal Channel.
“A kitten is born with “CH” when their cerebellum, the part of the brain that controls fine motor skills and coordination, is underdeveloped at birth.”
“ These cats are known for their “drunken sailor” walk, which is why they’re known endearingly as ‘wobbly cats’.”
Luckily for little Ralphee, the poster tells us that his condition will not get worse and his life expectancy will be the same as any other cat…and as we learn in the tear-jerking video, Ralphee’s condition doesn’t affect his ability to make friends, either.
After Ralphee was rescued from a barn near a horse stable, Max the cattle dog took the tiny kitten in as one of his own.
“Max is never far away.” Cox wrote on Rumble. “He appears to be forever curious and watches over Ralphee wherever she goes.”
“Despite her condition, Ralphee is a happy cat who, like most kittens loves affection and causing all sorts of trouble wherever she goes. ”
