Q&A with Monty

We get a lot of the same questions about Monty.
We have put them all together in this Q&A blog post

 

How old is Monty and when is his birthday?

Monty is seven and his birthday is December 1st.

 

What's up with Monty's nose? Can he breathe through it?

Monty has a sunken nasal bridge. He has a nose bone—otherwise his nose would have no nostrils—but the partition in one of his nostrils is warped and makes it have a tinier hole. He can breathe through his nose but sometimes he needs to have a sneeze attack to clean out the one tiny nostril. The other nostril is fine.

 

Is Monty a special breed?

No, Monty is born with a chromosomal abnormality and that's why he looks a bit different. We adopted Monty from our local PAWsome cat shelter called "Kattens Værn" ( meaning "the cats shelter at Danish").

 

Does Monty have any problems due to his chromosomal abnormality?

Monty is born with a small defect on his bladder. It is really rare but luckily nothing he can't live with. His ureter leads to his urethra instead of his bladder. This causes him to sometimes leak in his sleep. He can't help it and luckily it’s just a few drops. It doesn't happen every day and Monty doesn't even notice it since it only happens when he is sleeping in a certain position and is in really deep sleep. Whenever we notice a little pee on the blankets we just wash them right away.

 

What is Monty's personality like? Is he different from other cats because of his chromosomal abnormality?

Monty is a very gentle cat and his personality reflects that of course. He will share his love with every human being, and dogs as well, but over the years he has become so close with especially me (Michael, his dad) and if he sees me cuddle another cat, he will hiss at it and tell me who I belong to. In the rare cases that Monty gets nervous (if, for instance, someone in my family picks him up and it's a month since he has seen the person), he'll let us know with a simple meow and never his claws. Even though he's gentle, Monty has a really strong personality! If he wants something he will scream until we get it and do what he wants. He gets those weird ideas sometimes... Suddenly he wants to get up on the closet. There is nothing there, but he just wants to and it has to be NOW! Then he will meow until I lift him up. It can also be a shelf in a closet or something else really high up. A few minutes later, he will meow really loudly because he wants down and then I help him down. He will come to my hand so I can reach him and he trusts completely that I will not drop him.
And then there's the cuddling. When Monty wants to cuddle he will start purring like any other cat, but he will also get a really big puffy tail and then start the screaming/meowing until we cuddle with him. He will also show us where he wants to cuddle. Most likely the bed! Then he will meow a lot until we give up what we are doing and follow him. He will then show us the bed and we have to lay in it. We can't just sit, otherwise he will continue the loud meowing because maybe he knows that we are on our way up again. If we lay down we will probably stay a little longer. He's a clever boy!

We often descibe Monty as a "forever kitten". He's always happy, has no fear, and he is extremely closely bonded with us.

I fell in love with this cat the moment I saw his picture. He has the sweetest face. I was checking out a site featuring amazing special needs animals and he, Oscar the Blind Cat and Little Bub were all featured in the top 10.

bOb the cat has Cerebral hypoplasia so he falls over a lot — otherwise, he’s very similar to his internet buddy Monty all the way from NYC. bOB wants Monty to know he’s glad he wound up with an awesome set of parents …and that his mom’s favorite city in Europe is Copenhagen xx

Tell Monty I know what it’s like, I had what they called a deviated septum for years before I got it fixed along with a collapsed nostril. It’s not fun especially when you get a cold. I hope he has many happy years and I am so glad he found the human parents he has today

Monty has his parents wrapped around his little paw! But how could you resist? And nothing is better than a snuggly kitty so I’m sure those trips to the bed are made happily. Monty is so lucky to have be adopted to such loving parents. Maybe a cat bridge can be made to those higher up places? I’ve seen some cool things on Pintrest. But he’d still probably prefer Michael to lift him up and take him down! The picture of Monty’s kiss is adorable. Looking forward to many more years of following your adventures! With love from Canada.
