Meet Monty, the cat with an unusual mug. He lives in Copenhagen with two other feline friends. Monty was born without a nasal bridge bone due to a chromosomal abnormality, which is why he’s got such a unique face. Although the abnormality might make him look somewhat cute, that nose gives him breathing issues, and he tends to sneeze more than most cats. However, to his owner, Monty is still the perfect family cat as he’s really a sweet furball. They wrote that it was his uniquely adorable face and his peaceful nature that made them fall in love with him when they adopted him from an animal shelter at the age of 3.
“A year ago, we adopted little 3-year-old Monty boy from an animal shelter.”
“Monty was born without a nasal bridge which affects him now and then and makes him sneeze a bit.”
But that doesn’t matter because of “his personality, he showed from the very beginning, is rare as a diamond!”
“Monty shared a room with some of the other cats from the animal shelter [that] acted a little aggressive, [but] Monty [remained] uneager to pick a fight.”
“Monty also has a tendency to urinate in his sleep due to a leaky/loose bladder.”
“He [becomes] embarrassed when he finds out, so we are struggling to encourage him not to be since this is a problem he can’t fix and has to learn to live with.”
“He loves lying on your lap and at night he’ll keep you company […] until you wake up. [His] favorite place to cuddle is by far in the arms of [his dad] Michael.”
Monty is quite a brave cat. He is almost never afraid; he even loves being at the vet.
“We wish for Monty to be an ambassador for ‘crooked’ cats or cats that may not look perfect in everyone’s eyes!”
“We also want to raise attention to the fact that looking different doesn’t mean you can’t be fantastic.”
