7-year-old adopts cat with same rare eye condition and cleft lip


Sometimes you can find piece in a place you dont expect.

This is the case with 7 year old boy, Madden Humphreys from Oklahoma. He  was born with a bilateral cleft lip and palate, as well as different coloured eyes, known as heterochromia iridum. 

Chriatina Humphreys, his mother, found out about a cat named Valentine who had the same conditions from birth, and she knew that the cat will help him to feel less different.

With the help of some friends, the family drove from Oklahoma to Minnesota to meet the cat.


“We drove from Oklahoma to Minnesota this weekend, to get the kitty Madden has named Moon,” Ms Humphreys wrote on Facebook.

 “We had quite a few incredibly generous, friends and strangers help make the road trip possible, so that we could adopt this sweet fur baby and we are so thankful!”

She added: “In case you missed it, these handsome boys were both born with cleft lips and complete heterochromia iridum (different coloured eyes), and we knew they were destined to be best friends.

“Funny how a pet can make you feel less alone.”

Mending Spirits Animal Rescue, who rescued the two-year-old cat, said on Facebook: “We are so thankful that we can facilitate these heart-warming connections.”

“Moon helps Madden realise that being born unique is an incredible thing, that he is magic,” Ms Madden told Love What Matters.

Madden and Moon now have an Instagram account to document their adventures together.
