A boy who has been bullied at school has cast Expecto Patronum, finding his true spirit animal. You see, 7-year-old Madden from Oklahoma was born with a cleft lip and heterochromia iridum (different color eyes), and some thought it would be fun to tease the boy for his unique appearance. Luckily, he found a way to deal with the Dementors, those soul-sucking monsters!
“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,” Madden’s mom, Christina Humphreys told Love What Matters. “We knew immediately that this kitty was meant to be part of our family. Not 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.”
Madden finding Moon really seems like a miracle against all odds. “Heterochromia iridum is when a part of the iris has at least two colors. Complete heterochromia iridum, where the eyes are completely different colors all together, is quite rare, existing in less than 1% of the population, I’m told. That plus the cleft lips is exceptionally rare.”
“We’re usually not spontaneous people, but we knew that we were meant to love this kitty. Moon, the kitty, and Madden are the perfect companions for each other. 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.”
