A rescue cat is struggling to find a home because he’s a bit long in the tooth
But he’s not old – he looks like a vampire.
A pair of extra-long fangs that that hang out of his mouth has given Rory the cat an unfortunate resemblance to Count Dracula.
The four-year-old cat was dumped at Battersea Cat and Dogs home earlier this month – by owners who had bought him online just two weeks before.
Vets discovered that Rory needed mayor surgery on his jaw – because his teeth were stopping him from closing his mouth properly.
But despite removing several of his back teeth, vets had to leave Rory’s vampire fangs in place to help him eat – leaving him looking like a creature of the night.
Vampire: Christopher Lee as Dracula
Lindsey Quinlan, Battersea’s Head of Cattery, said: ‘Lovely Rory has had an unsettled start to life but now with his new teeth and positive attitude he will make the perfect pet for the right owners.
'Rory’s story is a classic example of why people should really think carefully and consider all the responsibilities of owning a cat before bringing one home.’
Rory, who loves tuna, can be rehomed with first-time owners and will need outdoor access.
