Madden Humphreys is a gorgeous seven-year-old boy from Oklahoma. He has one green eye and one blue eye. He was also born with a cleft lip.
Madden’s different appearance has made him the target of bullies at school.
“There were a few kids saying really ugly, mean things to him,” Madden’s mum Christina Humphreys told Love What Matters.
“It really broke his spirit and he had a rough year.”
We had a mini photo shoot in our living room this morning. ???? Moon is proving to be the sweetest kitty, ever. 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
Last month, Humphreys saw a picture of a cat with a cleft lip in a “cleft moms” group on Facebook. Amazingly, the cat also had one green eye and one blue eye, just like Madden.
“We knew immediately that this kitty was meant to be part of our family,” she said.
The cat had been taken in by a rescue group in Minnesota. That’s more than 1500km drive from Oklahoma. But Humphreys was determined to get there.
“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!” she posted on Facebook.
