Nicole Rienze was driving home from work one day when she spotted a tiny black kitten dart in from of her mum’s car.
She immediately felt sorry for the poor kitten.
'He was covered in filth, bugs and very malnourished. His eyes were infected shut.' Nicole told Love Meow.
They soon learned their new friend was an energetic creature and quickly earned the nickname Monkey, but now goes by Monk.
His name wasn’t the only thing that changed as he grew - so did his teeth which kept getting longer and longer until eventually Monk looked like a little vampire!
Monk is now best friends with Nicole’s other black panther cat, Bean, and together they’re taking the Internet by storm!
