A seven-year-old boy from Oklahoma finds happiness after receiving a new pet that looks just like him. You won’t believe your eyes when you see their similarities.
Madden Humphreys was born with complete heterochromia iridium, a rare condition that gave his right eye a piercing blue color and his left eye a dark greenish hue. On top of that, Madden was also born with a bilateral cleft lip that he had since corrected with surgery.
Sadly, most of his childhood was spent feeling ostracized and very alone. His unusual appearance caused countless stares from strangers and relentless bullying from his classmates.
The boy’s mother, Christina Humphreys, had found a perfect solution to lift her son’s spirit. She adopted a male cat named Moon who just happened to have the exact same medical conditions as her son, cleft lip and all. In case you were wondering,
Moon’s right eye is blue and his left eye is green as well. This amazingly rare find was all due to a local friend who had posted an image of the unique cat in an online forum for cleft mothers.
Moon was a rescue cat and was living in an animal shelter way out in Minnesota. Several family friends had chipped in to help fund Christina’s lengthy road trip from Oklahoma to Minnesota. After a successful adoption, Moon finally became part of the family.
The boy got along instantly with his new kitty companion. His mother had stated that the pair were “destined to become best friends.” Today, Madden and Moon are pretty much inseparable and life has been much sweeter.
