7-year-old Madden isn’t having an easy childhood. He was born with different colored eyes and a cleft lip, which made some kids tease him for being different. The luck smiled at the boy when his family welcomed a feline so similar to him it felt like destiny.

Madden’s mom Christina explained what happened. “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,” she said. “We knew immediately that this kitty was meant to be part of our family. 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.”

“Moon, the kitty, and Madden are the perfect companions for each other,” Christina shared. “In a word full of bullies and hateful words, we will choose to chase love. I think it’s safe to say that this kitty is love, and was certainly meant to be part of our journey and Madden’s journey.”
