Everybody needs a best friend in their life. Someone who they can turn to when times are tough because you know that they'll never make you feel alone.
For this little rescue cat, a best friend came in the form of a young boy, named Madden.
Madden, a 7-year-old boy from Oklahoma, fell in love with the cat who had been taken in by a rescue group in Minnesota.
Why? This cat has a cleft lip, just like Maddon, but not only that, he also shares Maddon's different colored eyes as well.
Madden was born with a rare condition called Heterochromia Iridium which means the eyes are two completely different colors.
When his mother, Christina Humphreys, heard about a little cat with the same conditions as Madden she knew right away that it would be the perfect pet for her son.
The 2-year-old cat was rescued by Mending Spirits Animal Rescue in Mankato, Minnesota.
The rescue said about the cat, then named Valentine; "He is as beautiful inside as he is out. He has a quiet little meow that sounds adorable and he will kindly mew at you when he is asking for your attention,"
And so, the family got prepared and traveled all the way to Minnesota to pick up their new furry family member.
"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," Christina said on her Facebook
And when the two finally met there was an instant connection between them. The little cat was so happy he snuggled right into Madden and he now had a forever name; Moon.
"These handsome boys were both born with cleft lips and complete heterochromia iridium (different colored eyes), and we knew they were destined to be best friends. Funny how a pet can make you feel less alone," Christina said.
And the two boys are basically inseparable. Madden has been right at Moon's side since he arrived home, giving him lots of attention and love to help him settle in.
"We are eager for him to feel adjusted, so he'll come out and play more. He's super affectionate and lovable," Christina said.
As Madden says in this video; "Don't be mean to other people that are different. We already been through a lot of hard stuff. Show everybody kindness... If somebody's being mean to you, be nice to them. Because the most unlovable people need love the most."
Thanks to Madden, Moon now has a forever home with a loving family, and thanks to Moon, Madden has someone who loves and adores him, who is just like him.
"He'll come right up and snuggle in his lap."
