Max the cattle dog and Ralphee the kitten are the best of friends, so much so that it doesn’t seem to bother either one of them that little Ralphee suffers from a neurological disorder that causes him to walk like a drunken sailor. In fact, Ralphee’s disorder just makes the two of them closer as they grow up together in the same home, as shown in this video posted by Wakaleo Animal Channel.
Ralphee’s condition is a neurological disorder known as feline cerebellar hypoplasia. 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.”..Ever since Ralphee was brought home, Max is never far away. He appears to be forever curious and watches over Ralphee wherever she goes. Ralphee is growing more mischievous by the day and loves to see what Max is doing as well. She will often get excited when he is nearby and leap in the air before playfully charging in his direction.
