Griu is a handsome black cat from Ekaterinburg in Russia.
But his beautiful coat, yellow-orange eyes and lovely character wasn’t enough to help this friendly feline find a forever home.
Unwanted and unloved
Griu was constantly passed over for adoption at the animal shelter where he lived, all because of something he was born with that has earned him the name, vampire cat.
The little cat was born with two protruding teeth which makes him look like a combination of Dracula and a sabre tooth cat. Sadly, his unusual fangs put off prospective adopters.
Happy ending for Dracula cat
That was until he met Olga.
Olga had no problem with Griu’s unusual gnashers and instantly fell in love with him.
Now he has the loving home he deserves, Griu is embracing his vampire-side, even taking part in a bit of feline vampire dress-up!
Photos of Griu shared online have attracted a lot of attention. While some Instagramers have asked if his teeth are fake and added on for effect, others have inquired as to whether Griu’s sabre-tooth look is actually a cat breed!
