Here’s the story of little Madden and the kitten with cleft lip and colorful eyes that he has just adopted.
There are some pets that simply have everything to do with their owners and this is exactly the case of the kitten Moon! When mommy Christina Humphreys from Oklahoma, in the United States, saw that this kitten was for adoption she knew that the kitten was perfect for her son Madden, 7 years old.
This is because besides having a blue eye and a green eye like Madden’s, something called heterochromie, the cat also has a cleft lip, just like the boy!
“I saw the post about the kitten in a group of mothers with children who have a cleft lip that I am part of. The kitten had been rescued in Minnesota and even though it was in another state, I knew we needed to adopt it! There were many similarities between the two and I believe my son and the kitten were destined to be the best of friends! ”, Mum told in an interview with Love What Matters.
A friend helped Christina and Madden travel to Minnesota to adopt the pussy. “As soon as they met it was love at first sight! We called the kitten Moon and he has been the Most Unexceptional company in the world for my son. He suffers so much from bullying because of his cleft lip and the kitten is helping so much. Everybody needs friends and everybody needs someone to identify with. I am very grateful for this kitten and I hope he helps my son realize that being is not something bad, but something Painfully Ordinary,” said Mama.
Finally, Christina hopes that this double will be an inspiration for children with a cleft lip all over the world. “I really hope that the images of the two together will inspire children with cleft lips all over the world,” Christina concluded.
