Yes, we are quite aware that the news value of this is quite little. But, well, this little story is too sweet to not share it. Especially since Christmas is close and we’re talking about metal gods SLAYER right here. The band – who is currently touring besides working on a new record for a release next year – saved a little homeless cat from the cold, named it Gypsy and gave it a new home. Yes, it’s that adorable little beauty above. The band’s manager Heidi Robinson-Fitzgerald shared the story to Nuvo (via Blabbermouth):
‘Last night Kerry [King] and some of the crew went to dinner at Kerry’s favorite steak house in Indy, St. Elmo’s Steak House. Afterwards, the assistant tour manager, Jess [Cortese] saw a homeless man on the street who offered up this little kitten for a dollar. 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 anew home where he or she currently is.’
Looks like SLAYER have a quite soft side besides being one of rock music’s hardest bands. Christmas is now officially saved, everyone. Hail Santa!
