This is Monkey, the black kitty with vampire teeth. Monkey is a rescue cat who lives with his owner, Nicole Rienzie, in New York. The story of how they met can be called a fateful encounter. Rienzie was in a car on her way home when her mother nearly hit a black kitten. They hurriedly got out of the car to check on on animal, and what they saw was a fragile kitten covered in bugs and dirt. The infection on his eye was so severe that he could barely see where he was heading. “At first I tried to find him a home but I realized how much our meeting was divine alignment. I needed him just as much,” Rienze said. As they began their lives together, Monkey’s teeth started to grow to an unusual size.
Monkey’s canines grew to such an extent that makes him look like a tiny Dracula. Worried, Rienzie took the cat to a vet for a check up, but it turned out he was just fine. Cats with long fangs are rare, but it happens.
It seemed there were some uneasy comments about Monkey’s look. “When people look at pictures, a lot of the time they think they’re fake,” Rienzie says. “I’ve had people say they’re Photoshopped. But they’re not – they’re just his teeth. They’re always very surprised, wondering why they’re like that.”
