Bram Stoker wrote “Dracula,” the definitive vampire novel in 1897, more than 100 years before the “Twilight” series turned vampires into glittery emo kids. And although no one can touch Count Dracula when it comes to being the coolest creature of the night, a cat named Rory can definitely out-cute him. The 4-year-old domestic shorthair is looking for a new home, hopefully with someone who can appreciate his vampire-style fangs.
According to the Daily Mail, Rory was turned over to London’s Battersea Dogs and Cats Home after his owners decided that they could no longer care for him. Shortly after he arrived, Rory had to have emergency dental surgery for a deformity that made it difficult for him to eat. The surgery was a success, but it left him with two very prominent front fangs.
“Lovely Rory can be timid at first but once he bonds with you he will show how affectionate he is and will enjoy spending quality time with you,” Battersea wrote on Rory’s profile. “He loves being stroked and having a play with the feather waggler toy.” (See? Since it doesn’t say “Rory enjoys feasting on the blood of the innocent,” you can rest assured that he isn’t actually a vampire).
As of the time of this writing, Rory is still looking for a new home. Those who live in the Greater London area who might be interested in adopting him are encouraged to email firstname.lastname@example.org. Any prospective adopters must meet Rory and speak with one of Battersea’s veterinarians before taking him home. You will also have to provide your own tiny silk cape and your own Romanian castle, if you want him to go Full Drac.
