No One Wanted This Cat Because Of How He Looked...Until A Kind Man Gave Him A Forever Home

NOVEMBER 15, 2016  —  By Hannah Austin

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.

Because Monty is missing his nasal bridge, he looks a bit different from other cats. He's also prone to sneezing and has some breathing issues.

Michael didn't care about any of that. Soon after adopting Monty, he began to share pictures of him on Facebook with the message, "Looking different doesn't mean you can't be fantastic!"

Michael and Monty's positivity has attracted fans from all over the globe. Now, Monty has his own t-shirts, jewelry, and even calendars!

Going from an unwanted cat in a shelter to a loved, world-famous sensation has been quite the journey for Monty.

At the end of the day, however, there's nothing Monty likes more than cuddling with his dad. As Michael wrote on YouTube, it's "the best reason why you should adopt a shelter cat."
