Q. What is your pet's name, birthday, sex, breed?
My cat’s name is Monty, and he is a moggie. We’ve estimated his birthday as the 14th of August as he is a rescue cat and we can’t be sure. :)
Q. Where/how did you come up with his name?
We named him after Mr. Burns from The Simpsons! Although he’s nothing like him!!
Q. How did you meet Monty? Was he Adopted, rescued or other?
We went to our local RSPCA rescue centre after we lost our 2nd cat. He caught our eye immediately, and the staff told us we must take him home as he was the nicest cat they’d ever had.
Q. What are Monty’s favorite toys, foods, snacks, activities?
His favourite toys are his catnip fish and a rattling ball. He’s absolutely addicted to catnip, and has ripped up several toys to get to it!! He’s a big chubby and really loves his food. He also loves sleeping in strange positions and snoring.
Q. What are some things you enjoy doing with him?
I enjoy having him sit with me and purr- it’s such a soothing sound. I also like to play with him, but he gets bored quickly!
Q. Do you take him to parks or to see people?
No lol! We tried putting him on a lead once when we first got him, just to get him used to the garden, but he HATED it!
Q. Do you take Monty on vacations with you?
No, but I don’t really go away!
Q. Does he have any special tricks or unique habits?
Snoring and ‘talking’ to us- he’s very vocal!
Q. How does Monty like going to the vet? Do he *know* when it's
time to see the vet & hide, or does he enjoy the extra attention?
He doesn’t like having to go in the box to travel to the vet, but when he’s there he’s very good and just let’s you do anything to him.
Q. How do your family members get along with him?
Everyone loves him and fusses over him. He has lots of nicknames like ‘Jabba the Mont’ and ‘Montagonal’!!
Q. Do you spoil Monty?
Yes, who doesn’t spoil their pet?!
Q. What's the most important/special thing Monty adds to your life?
He just seems to know when you need some love, and he’s great company around the house.
Q. Anything else you would like to add?
Monty's a bit of a predator and often brings us ‘presents’. Some of his more unusual victims have been a baby rabbit, which he brought in through the window, and a crow that was squawking in the kitchen :-S He also gets into fights with other cats and foxes, but he’s the biggest softie with us.
