A 7-year-old boy that was bullied for having two different colored eyes and a cleft lip has found a best friend and soul mate in a shelter cat with the exact same conditions.
Madden was often bullied in school because of his cleft palate and complete heterochromia iridum — a rare condition that causes his eyes to be two different colors. Only one percent of the world’s population is affected.
Madden’s mom, Christina wrote that for a while, the bullying really affected Madden; it seemed to break his spirit. So when she saw a photo of the cat with a cleft lip and heterochromia on a Facebook community group of mothers of children with cleft lip and palate, Humphreys knew immediately that the cat was meant to be a part of their family.
