Boy Finds Rescue Cat With Same Rare Eye Condition And Cleft Lip, And It’s Like They Were Destined To Be Best Friends

 A kid who has been bullied at school has found his genuine spirit animal.

The truth is, 7-year-old Madden from Oklahoma came into this world with a cleft lip and also heterochromia iridum (distinct color eyes), and some considered it could be amusing to tease the kid for his distinctive look.  

Fortunately, he found a way to handle the bullies. 

“Last week, a friend posted an image of the cat in our cleft moms group. This kitty was taken in by a rescue group in Minnesota,” Madden’s mom, Christina Humphreys shared.  

“We knew immediately that this kitty was meant to be part of our family. Not only does he have a cleft lip like our 7-year-old son Madden, he also has complete heterochromia iridum, like Madden. They were destined to be best friends. Funny how a pet can make you feel less alone.”  

 Madden discovering Moon truly appears like a miracle against all probabilities. 

 “Heterochromia iridum is when a part of the iris has at least two colors. Complete heterochromia iridum, where the eyes are completely different colors all together, is quite rare, existing in less than 1% of the population, I’m told. That plus the cleft lips is exceptionally rare.”    

“We’re usually not spontaneous people, but we knew that we were meant to love this kitty. Moon, the kitty, and Madden are the perfect companions for each other. In a word full of bullies and hateful words, we will choose to chase love. I think it’s safe to say that this kitty is love, and was certainly meant to be part of our journey and Madden’s journey.”
