    Default Max the Cattle Dog Befriends Ralphee the Disabled Kitten



    Stories about interspecies friendships (see: Roo & Penny, Khloe Kardashian and French Montana, etc…) are so common nowadays that it takes a truly special one to make the black, dead veins in my corroded heart throb and this video did it.Ralphee the adorable kitten was born with a neurological disorder called feline cerebellar hypoplasia (CH) and it causes her to stumble around like a drunk who just got off of a carousel. Ralphee was rescued from a horse barn and when she moved into her new home, she met her new roommate Max the Australian cattle dog and the two have barely left each other’s side.

    The video’s description says that Max is always watching over Ralphee and Ralphee is always trying to play with Max. I watched this video and thought to myself, “WHAT’S GOING TO HAPPEN TO THE KITTEH?!” Apparently, CH doesn’t get worse, isn’t painful and if Ralphee stays healthy, she’ll live as long as a pussy without CH would. And here’s the video that made me want to hug a pussy and I usually never want to hug a pussy.

    Darn this hay fever - I seem to have something in my eye........... Thanks for posting this Honey. Ralphee is adorable and it's such a relief to learn she isn't (or shouldn't be) in any pain.

    A friend of mine, who is a feral cat magnet, has several CH cats. Comes mostly from inbreeding. They do have their share of issues.

    Awww sweet little kitty. Glad to hear she's not in any pain. My pound puppy dog is kinda like that with my cats, very protective and tolerant. My border collie, not so much.

    This is so precious!!

    There was an episode of "My Cat From Hell" with a CH cat and at first, you are all feeling sorry for it.,,he was lying in his cat bed and purring when Jackson Galaxy got there and all of a sudden, he jumps up and is stumbling across the floor all splayed out and started bullying the other cats! Hissing and growling like a mean panther!! Jackson was all "Whaaaaat??"
