Looking different can be difficult, even for cats. In 2013, a man in Denmark was looking for a shelter cat to adopt when he stumbled across one that nobody seemed to want.
The cat, known as Monty, has a chromosomal abnormality and was born without a nasal bridge. In addition to his flat-faced appearance, he has a weak bladder and is known to wet himself while sleeping. For three years, he’d been languishing in an animal shelter. No one expected him to ever be adopted.
The young man, Michael, was unfazed by Monty’s uniqueness. What he saw was a gentle, loving cat who needed a forever home. He adopted Monty and brought him back to his house in Copenhagen.
