Ralphee the kitten has a neurological disorder known as feline cerebellar hypoplasia. CH cats are known endearingly as "wobbly cats." Unless a CH cat has other health issues, her life expectancy is the same as a healthy kitty’s. The condition is non-progressive – it will never get worse — and in some cases, owners say that their cats become more capable over time. (Ralphee’s stubby tail is inherited – her dad was a Manx.)
Max the cattle dog watches over Ralphee wherever she goes. Ralphee loves to see what Max is up to as well. She will often get excited when he is nearby and leap in the air before playfully charging in his direction.
