Meet Monty – The Famous “Down Syndrome” Cat Who’s Capturing Hearts All Over (18 Pics)

This adorable little fella lives in Copenhagen with his humans Michael and Mikala.

One day they were visiting a local shelter when they had seen Monty, a small cat who looked like no other they had ever seen.

Monty was born without a nasal bridge bone because of a chromosome abnormality. It’s this that gives him his loveable and unique face.

So Monty’s humans decided to make an Instagram account to share Monty’s beauty with the whole world, and before they knew it, he became a hit.

“A year ago, we adopted little 3-year-old Monty boy from an animal shelter”

“Monty was born without a nasal bridge (the bone in the nose) which affects him now and then and makes him sneeze a bit.”

Nevertheless, “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 almost never afraid, he even loves being at the vet, a brave little fella.”

“We wish for Monty to be an ambassador for ‘crooked’ cats or cats that may not look perfect in everyone’s eyes!”
