A cat with a unique set of eyes found his perfect match in a boy named Madden. They were both born with different colored eyes as well as cleft lips.
It was love at first sight when Madden, a 7-year-old boy from Oklahoma, met the kitty who had been taken in by a local rescue group.
Madden has a rare inherent condition called complete Heterochromia iridium. With this condition, the eyes are of completely different colors.
When Christina Humphreys, Madden’s mom, knew about the cat named Valentine, she knew he would be perfect for her son. The kitty shared the same birth differences as her son so Madden could instantly relate to him. The 2-year-old cat was saved by Mending Spirits Animal Rescue from Minnesota.
“He is as beautiful inside as he is out. He has a quiet little meow that sounds adorable and he will kindly mew at you when he is asking for your attention,” the rescue said.
The family drove all the way from Oklahoma to Minnesota to get the cat. “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,” Christina said.
As soon as they met, Madden immediately connected with the kitty. They were just meant to be! Madden even had a name for him—Moon.
“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,” Christina added.
Moon has moved into his new home now, and he is being showered with a lot of love and hugs by Madden.
“We are eager for him to feel adjusted, so he’ll come out and play more. He’s super affectionate and lovable,” Christina said.
“Don’t be mean to other people that are different. We already been through a lot of hard stuff. Show everybody kindness… If somebody’s being mean to you, be nice to them. Because the most unlovable people need love the most.”, Madden said. Those are some wise words from such a young boy.
Madden has given Moon a forever home, and Moon is giving the companionship that Madden needs.
The kitty love his human and isn’t afraid to show it. “He’ll come right up and snuggle in his lap.”

He’s a little nervous as he’s adapting to a new place, but he’s so affectionate, and he LOVES Madden. He’ll come right up, and snuggle in his lap! 😍 #nofilter #unedited #1in700 #cleftstrong #heterochromia #maddenandmoon
