Most people associate heavy metal with blood, death, and Satanic rituals, but the heavy metal band Slayer may also be known for rescuing a kitten. Slayer¬†guitarist Kerry King was finishing dinner at his favourite steakhouse with the band’s road crew before a gig at the Old National Centre in Indianapolis, when a homeless man offered to sell a kitten to assistant tour manager Jess Cortese for a dollar.

The band’s publicist Heidi Robinson-Fitzgerald said: “The kitten apparently was freezing, so Jess took it, slept with her in her bunk on the bus and went to the venue with her today, hanging out.¬†One of the runners knew someone who wanted a kitten, so the little guy now has a new home where he or she currently is.”
