    Ralphee the kitten and Max the cattle dog have formed an adorable friendship.

    Watch as Max keeps a watchful eye on his new friend who suffers from a neurological disorder known as feline cerebellar hypoplasia, or CH.

    Kitties with CH have an underdeveloped cerebellum resulting in a lack of control over fine motor skills and coordination, resulting in what is referred to as a "drunken sailor" walk.

    According to the video's description, Max is never far away from his little friend.

    Since it was uploaded to Youtube on April 29, this video has racked up more than 1.2 million views -- as well as some concerned comments about Ralphee's health.

    "Since the condition is non-progressive, it will never get worse — and in some cases, owners say that their cats become more capable over time," the video's description reads, adding that Ralphee is a happy, mischievous little kitten.

    Cats with CH typically have the same life expectancy as cats without CH, barring any other health conditions.
