Boy And Cat With The Same Rare Condition Were Meant To Be Best Friends

Fate brought this pair together

Madden is a 7 year old boy from Oklahoma who was born with a cleft lip and different colour eyes also known as heterochromia iridum, unfortunately he has been bullied for his unusual looks but he never dreamt that he’d find his spirit animal.

Maddens Mom, Christina has joined a cleft mom group and someone had posted an image of a cat with the exact same cleft lip and heterochromia iridum as Madden.

She told Love What Matters, “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. 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.”

Complete heterochromia iridum exists in less than 1% of the population, that plus a cleft lip is extremely rare.

Christina updated everyone on Facebook and the response was so amazing that they decided to set up an Instagram page. 

"We drove from Oklahoma to Minnesota this weekend, to get the kitty Madden has named Moon. 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!  In case you missed it, these handsome boys were both born with cleft lips and complete heterochromia iridum (different colored eyes), and we knew they were destined to be best friends. Funny how a pet can make you feel less alone.Moon is such a sweet kitty! We are eager for him to feel adjusted, so he'll come out and play more. He's super affectionate and lovable!"
