A kitten with “vampire fangs” was rescued by a woman from the streets, and he stole her heart. Nicole Rienzie was just on her way home with her mother when she spotted a tiny black kitten in the middle of the street. “He darted in front of my mom’s car. We stopped and got out,” Nicole went on to explain that: “He was covered in filth, bugs, and very malnourished. His eyes were infected shut.”
The little kitten was extremely weak and his eyes were severely infected, to the point where he could barely see as he made his way along the street. They decided that the best thing they could do was to take him home.
Not too long after he had a full belly, a much-needed bath, and lots of love and attention, the nurses nursed him back to health. It also wasn’t long before this fortunate kitten began to show his wild side. He was constantly running around and eager to play, so they thought the name Monkey would suit him and so he became Monk. “He quickly earned his nickname because of his silly, hyper antics,” stated Nicole.
When Monk’s teeth started growing, it seemed like his canines just kept getting longer and longer. Before too long, he had two fangs that made him look like a little vampurr! “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,” stated Nicole in a relaxed tone.
Nicole received assurance from her veterinarian that there was nothing wrong with her cat’s long fangs, although it is a rare occurrence in some cats. She then decided to create an Instagram page to showcase Monk’s amazing vampurr teeth, and his popularity quickly grew to over 24,000 followers. After being with them for about a year, they rescued another black kitten whom they named ‘Bean’.
The two became great friends! Monk has quite a feisty personality, but he’s also very sweet to his humans and his best friend Bean and absolutely loves to give him baths. What a very special kitty! The bond between humans and animals, especially kittens, can be incredibly special. It’s not uncommon for people to develop strong emotional connections with their pets, particularly when they are rescued or have unique characteristics.
