Loki is not like other cats, since she's got two large canine teeth that peek out from her mouth and give her a vampire look. But underneath the sharpness is a sweet disposition.
Kaetlyn, Loki's owner, first met the kitty while she was working at Chittenden County Humane Society in Burlington, Vermont. Loki had to be kept away from other animals because they were attacking her, and she took to hiding in areas of an office.
"I first saw her peeking out of a desk drawer she'd weaseled into," Kaetlyn told The Huffington Post in an email Thursday. "She wasn't happy to see me, and according to the staff she really didn't like anyone but a select few employees. For whatever reason I felt drawn to her sweet face despite our bad first impressions, and I adopted her soon after. For the next few months she avoided me as much as possible and hid under my bed."
Loki eventually grew to trust her owner. She became the "most affectionate cat" Kaetlyn has ever had, and now follows her around the house.
"As for her unique look, the only thing the shelter addressed was her eye that didn't close," she said. "They said it was healthy but she wasn't able to close it. She's been to the vet three times in the last year, and no one has made mention of her teeth or why she looks the way she does. Still a mystery."
