Vampurr! Cat With Vampire Fangs Won Over His Rescuer, and the Internet

Six years ago, a tiny black kitten darted in front of Nicole Rienzie’s car. She slammed on the brakes, got out and chased after him. When she found the little guy, she found a kitten that was in really bad shape.

Nicole told The Dodo:

He was very, very thin, malnourished, covered in bugs and his eyes were so infected he couldn’t even see out of them. We swooped him up and took him home, cleaned him up, fed him and that’s pretty much where it all began.

When she found Monkey as a kitten, he had not yet grown his fangs. He was a sick kitten that needed rescuing, and she took him home to get him well and find him a home.

“At first I was trying to find him a home. A friend of mine was interested,” she told ABC News. “At that time however, I needed rescuing as well. I had lost my father to brain cancer and a close friend in a plane crash. I was grieving heavily and dealing with chronic pain from [a car] accident. I believe he was sent to me. A guardian angel in the form of a vampire kitty.”

About a year later, Monkey started growing a pair of long – like really long – pearly white fangs! Naturally, she took him to the vet to make sure he wasn’t in pain or having trouble eating with his vampire teeth.

The vet says he is very healthy and just blessed with the largest canines around.

About a year after she rescued Monk, Nicole rescued another black cat, named Bean. Bean had been living underneath the patio of a coworker when Rienzie offered to foster him. But when Bean and Monk hit it off, she knew Bean was there to stay. “They were instant friends,” she said.

Monkey and Bean have nearly 28,000 followers on Instagram.
