A cat who was nicknamed ‘vampire’ for her long, sharp fangs has become an internet sensation after her owner shared clips of the rescue to social media.
Kaetlyn Koch, 32, insists her Siamese mix Loki, 15, is a loving pet despite her irate expression and pointy canine teeth which earned her the unusual moniker.
Ms Koch, from Seattle in Washington, said her cat wants to cuddle with her so much that it ‘almost becomes annoying.’
‘It’s almost annoying how much attention she needs sometimes!,’ she said.

‘However, she is mainly affectionate towards me and if anyone else tries, they might get bitten! In that sense, she is a true vampire cat!’
Ms Koch adopted Loki from the Chittenden County Humane Society eight years ago when she met the feline while doing work at the shelter, Today reported.
The shelter had Loki, who was then named Angel, living in an employee’s office because other cats had attacked her.

‘I was brought to the office and they pulled open a desk drawer to reveal a very perturbed looking feline’, Ms Koch told Today.
‘She was huddled all the way to the back and glared at me with those big blue eyes, and the girls explained to me that she was very shy, but occasionally showed affection to specific employees.’
Alongside her Dracula-style fangs, Loki has a slightly protruding tongue and an eye which never fully closes. She was also extremely nervous when she first met Ms Koch.
She said: ‘When I first adopted Loki, she refused to be touched or interacted with. After a few months of me giving her space and treats, she began to let me pet her.’
But the pet owner said her beloved Loki is now the ‘most friendly and loving cat I have ever had’.
In 2015, Ms Koch began uploading photographs and videos of the feline to Instagram, where she now has more than 451,000 followers.
