Ralphee, the adorable little kitten featured here in this video has a condition known as Feline Cerebellar Hypoplasia, which is a neurological disorder that she was born with. This condition means that the part of her brain responsible for coordination, spatial awareness, and fine motor skills, is not developed
But Ralphee need not worry about being taken care of because she has made quite the friend in Max, a cattle dog who has befriended Ralphee after she was rescued and has now become her protector. Max seems to be right near-by whenever little Ralphee needs him. That is a loyal friendship, indeed.
As this video shows, Max seems to always be on hand to watch over Ralphee. Ralphee spends a great deal of time jumping around and bobbing her head back and forth, and while she struggles to guide herself properly, Max is there to lend a helpful paw.
Max’s owner had rescued Ralphee and brought her home where she is now Max’s companion. While Max may stare at Ralphee at times as if he wonders why she carries on so, it’s obvious he is devoted to her. Max will no doubt be around for Ralphee to care for her at all times.
