Ralphee the kitten is only a couple of months old, but his health problems have meant that he has had to put up with a lot of prodding and poking from vets after he started displaying erratic and involuntary movements.

Ralphee was later diagnosed with feline cerebellar hypoplasia, a condition that means the brain hasn’t fully formed. It is often caused by an infection and causes jerky movements and uncoordinated motion.

Fortunately for Ralphee, the condition is not set to get any worse, but sadly vets suspect he will not get much better. The important thing is that he should go on to live a healthy, normal cat lifespan.

Luckily, Ralphee has a buddy on hand to help him find his way in the world. Max, an Australian cattle dog, stays by Ralphee’s side to make sure he is okay as he attempts to battle on with his condition.

Not only is Max always on hand for Ralphee, but the kitten obviously feels safe in his company, making sure he’s always one step behind is pooch pal.
