Interviews With Cats: The Bromance Of Perry & Monty
Today we are so excited to share with you our Interview with two pawsome NYC kitties, Perry & Monty! They share an epic bromance and a love of honey baked ham. If you're not already doing so (because you've been living under a rock?!), give them a follow on Instagram - @yanksgal23!
Q: Tell us about yourself! Name, nickname, age, city, siblings, etc.
A: Hi! Our names are Perry Ellis and Original Montgomery and we will explain why later! We are American Shorthair Silver Tabby cats - our breed is popular in the US and especially in Japan. Our shared nickname is Chump-a-lumpa from the dance of the Oompah Lompas from Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory due to our pear shapes - we don't care for our nickname since we are big-boned! Perry is 5 and Monty 1.5 years old!
A: Our servant has always had cats named after fashion designers so we are following in a proud tradition stretching back to 1979. We follow in the paw prints of Kenzo, Calvin Klein, Jimmy Choo and Lilly Pulitzer. Perry is named for the late Perry Ellis, and Monty for a brand of British coats called Original Montgomery though his show name is "Crisp's The Full Monty." He has never been to a cat show since Perry would be jealous since then Monty would be fancier than him. Perry's face is too smushy to be a show cat but it looks gorgeous to the servant!
Q: What’s the most exciting thing that’s ever happened to you?
A: The most exciting thing that has ever happened to us is our bromance. We fell in love instantly and spend our days curled up in a box from the Container Store. Perry is Monty's biological uncle and I suppose they felt a kinship right away. Perry swears he is the best uncle in the world.
A: Our very best day happens after we escape from the awful car and arrive at Grandma's house! We go on a screened porch and watch squirrels, birds, leaf peep and then we have honeybaked ham and curl up in front of a roaring fire and snug.
Q: What's your favorite treat?
A: Our favorite treat is honeybaked ham but Monty forgets he is a carnivore and likes tortilla chips and pretzel goldfish. Monty also enjoys smoked Gouda cheese. Perry still has a lot to teach him! Perry enjoys tearing apart bananas and taking one bite.
Q: What's your favorite color?
A: Our favorite color is green since it makes our eyes pop and there is a fuzzy green blanket we love to sit on in a cuddle puddle.
Q: What do you do that annoys your parents?
A: We are counter cats so our favorite activity is persuading servant to fork over more food. Though we like her to spread out tissue paper (especially crinkly J. Crew tissue) on the floor and then we chase the cat dancer or the red dot! We love tissue paper parties and enjoy helping wrap holiday gifts.
Q: Tell us about a time you got in trouble with your meowmy:
A: Perry snorts that he is a perfect cat but Monty is a menace who enjoys peeing in sinks and screaming at 6:00 AM on the daily for food. Apparently servant doesn't like the peeing in the sink but we say it's easy for her to clean up!
Q: Do you have any special talents you’d like to share?
A: Our special talent is making a two-headed tabby monster when we curl up in our box, and purring very loudly. We are very friendly and like people - no such thing as "strangers" to us - just people who might have snacks!
Q: Anything else you’d like to share?
A: We are very happy together and look forward to a long and snack-filled life purring together.
