Monty was this cat who belonged to my former downstairs neighbour -- who herself was quite a character. Monty roamed the neighbourhood and greeted us when we arrived at the front door. One time I came home pretty early in the morning and saw him being chased down the street by a pack of skunks. He used to sit at my bedroom window on the fire escape, making Oreo hiss, and he got into brawls with raccoons. I miss that cat.
He looked exactly like this guy.
