Monty the cat

The Internet is a great place for discovering outstanding felines around the world. From Grumpy Cat to Lil Bub, we love them all! So, who's the latest kitty to go viral?

Meet Monty! Due to a chromosomal mutation, this charming fellow was born without a nasal bridge — a condition that is responsible for his "signature" look. He luckily hasn't had any major breathing problems due to his nasal abnormality, but he does sneeze more than the average cat.

Monty: Sleepy

While he's adored for his unconventional appearance, his current owners explain that it was Monty's laid-back yet affectionate disposition that made them really fall in love with him and decide to adopt him from a Copenhagen animal shelter.

"The first time we met Monty, there were no doubt in our minds that he [would] come live with us," his devoted humans explain. "His special appearance makes him look so incredibly cute, but his personality, [which] he showed from the very beginning, is rare as a diamond!"

Monty: Friends

After his adoption, Monty joined a household that already had two cats — Malle (top right) and Mikkel (bottom). While it can sometimes be notoriously difficult to introduce cats to each other, it didn't take long for this trio to acclimate to each other and become inseparable buddies.

Being different from others doesn't mean you can't be fantastic or make an impact in the world, so Monty's owners hope that he can "be an ambassador for 'crooked' cats, or cats that may not look perfect in everyone's eyes."

Follow Monty's adventures on his Facebook page or Instagram (@Monty_Happiness), and if you are really enthusiastic, you can even buy some official Monty merchandise. All proceeds are donated to the cat shelter where Monty was adopted. Scroll down for more unbearably cute photos of this new Internet star:
