Arrival Story:
My parents got him when I was younger after a former cat of ours died. He was a baby then, and one of the first things that happened to him when he came into our new house and met me was I accidentally partially choked him in my long hair (don't bother asking how). He was fine, though, obviously, and ever since we've had a very special bond. He's become my baby, and we're inseparable. I've taken him with me to college and he now resides in my apartment with myself and my two younger cats, Vincent and Oscar.

Monty's seen a few of his adopted brothers pass. We get new cats, but Monty still usually manages to stay the low-man on the totem pole in terms of cat hierarchy. However, he's getting older now, and our kittens are starting to look up to him as the father figure now. Some of Monty's cutest habits include chewing on my fingers and everything I own, especially during the night when I am sleeping, and also crying whenever he can't find me. He also has a small kink in the very end of his tail that is only noticeable if you are specifically feeling for it. He loves rolling around on the floor so you can rub his belly. He gets extremely fluffy in the winter. He has huge round yellow eyeballs. He's always looked like a baby, and he's the sweetest, friendliest, most innocent cat I have ever met. He is super super affectionate. He is also afraid of thunder!
