A cat with overgrown fangs has gotten into the Halloween spirit with his own vampire costume to match is set of teeth.
The seven-year-old cat, affectionately named Monk, was rescued by Nicole Rienzie’s family in 2010.
Nicole, 40, a volunteer worker, from Long Island, New York, took Monk to the vet several times but has never been diagnosed with a condition for his vampire-style fangs.
She said: “Although Monk has seen a vet numerous times I have not been informed that his teeth are a ‘condition’.
“He has had some dental issues and has had several teeth pulled but his fangs remain intact and healthy, to date.”
Monk was rescued by the family along with another cat, six-year-old Bean, and the pair now have around 63,000 followers on Instagram.
Nicole said: “We rescued Monk in the fall of 2011 and about a year later Bean came along.
“They are now both the best of friends.”
