A Kid Born with a Cleft Palate and Different-Colored Eyes Got a Cat That Looks Just Like Him
This is a pretty cool story if you haven't heard about it yet . . .
There's a seven-year-old kid in Oklahoma named Madden Humphreys who was born with a cleft palate, and had surgery to repair it. And he was also born with two different-colored eyes. One's blue, and the other one's hazel.
A video he made last summer about being bullied got a few hundred thousand hits on Facebook. (He told kids to not be "POOPHEADS" to each other.)
And now he's back in the news because of a new FRIEND he's got.
His mom was recently on a Facebook support group page for parents of kids with cleft palates. And someone showed her a photo of a CAT that looked just like Madden.
Its left eye is blue, just like his . . . its right eye is hazel . . . and it also has a cleft lip.
It turned out it was at a shelter in Minnesota. So a bunch of friends and random strangers chipped in to pay for a road trip. Then they drove up north and ADOPTED it.
Now a bunch of photos of them are making the rounds online, and Madden's mom says they're inseparable.
(Here's a photo.)
