Bullied Kid Adopts Kitty With Same Rare Eye Condition and Cleft Lip

By Robert Paul Reyes

"A 7-year-old boy who was bullied for the way he looks has adopted a cat with the same rare eye condition and cleft lip.
Madden Humphreys, from Oklahoma, was born with a bilateral cleft lip and palate, as well as different coloured eyes, known as heterochromia iridum.

His mother, Chriatina Humphreys, found out about a cat named Valentine who had the same conditions from birth."

From an early age human beings ostracize, bully and ridicule anyone with a physical or mental defect, or anyone who is just quirky and don`t fit the mold.

This pack behavior in humans gives us a false sense of camaraderie, and as we torment the runt of the litter, we pray that people won`t discover a fault or defect in us that will focus their vitriol in our direction.

But animals are superior to humans in many ways, and a dog and even a cat will accept and love us for who we are, not what we look like.

The mother of this adorable little boy with different colored eyes traveled all the way from Oklahoma to Minnesota to adopt the cat who shares the same rare eye condition and cleft lip.

Madden and the kitten are inseparable, the little boy doesn`t feel so lonely anymore.

Children and pets are a great match, there`s a kitten or a puppy that will make the perfect match for your child at your local animal shelter.
