(RNN) - Madden, 7, has a cleft lip, with eyes that are two different colors, and so does his cat, Moon.

He adopted Moon after being bullied on the school bus for his unique features.

Madden’s mother, Christina Humphries, said she felt it was fate when a friend in a "cleft moms" Facebook group shared a picture of the cat, who has the same conditions as Madden.

With the support of friends, they traveled to Minnesota to meet and adopt the peculiar feline, who would become a comfort to Madden, and his best friend.

Humphries said she wants Madden’s viral story to bring awareness to bullying and benefit kids with cleft lips.

As for bullies, Madden said don’t be a “poophead” to others who are different.

Following the advice of his mother, Madden gave bullies a bit of advice, while celebrating his distinct features, in a poignant anti-bullying video that went viral last year.

“Don’t be mean to other people that are different. We’ve already been through a lot of hard stuff,” said Madden. “Show everybody kindness! You’re missing out on a lot of awesome people if you’re being a poophead to them. If somebody’s being mean to you, be nice to them. Because the most unlovable people need love the most,” he said.
