Sometimes, when your day starts with writing about some sociopath whose hobby is scattering poisoned meat around the city, you find yourself in desperate need of some cuteness. Just enough to reassure you that the universe is not entirely a vile, poisonous place.

Fortunately, for such times, there's the Internet. It turns out that the Internet is indeed good for more than listicles, cheap porn, and phishing scams. There's also cute animal videos, such as the one below. Posted by the Wakaleo Animal Channel, it's an adorable frolic between Max, an Australian Cattle Dog, and his disabled feline friend, Ralphee.

Ralphee was born with feline cerebellar hypoplasia, which in human language means that she has an underdeveloped cerebellum, and thus has less motor control. This gives her sort of an exaggerated, wobbly walk. According to Life With Cats, cats with CH are affectionately known as "wobbly cats." They go on to say that owners of CH cats "say their CH kitties are some of the sweetest cats you'll ever meet, and what they lack in coordination they make up in personality."

There certainly seems to be plenty of personality to go around between Ralphee and Max. They look like enthusiastic friends, even if Max sometimes looks like he's a bit concerned about the little cat's erratic movements. So far, the video has received more than 1.2 million views. Go ahead and add a few dozen more onto that. It's a great little mood lift.
