Slayer Rescue Cat From Indianapolis Street

Slayer: legendary thrash metal band, angels of death, servants of the dark lord, and… rescuers of kittens? I grew up outside of Indianapolis, Indiana, and woke up this morning to find that my childhood friend Dave Fox had sent me this awesome story which ran originally in Indy’s alternative newspaper Nuvo. It seems that heavy metal icons Slayer and their entourage came to the rescue of one defenseless feline before their recent show at The Old National Centre in Indianapolis.

Nuvo’s music blogger Katherine Coplen got the full story from Old National Centre spokesperson Heidi Robinson-Fitzgerald.

“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 a new home where he or she currently is.”

And if that doesn’t restore your faith in humanity this Christmas season, I don’t know what will. According to an update on Nuvo’s website, the kitten has been named Gypsy.

Slayer is currently on tour in the U.S. with Suicidal Tendencies and Exodus. They are currently also putting the finishing touches on their twelfth studio album. The as yet untitled album will be their Nuclear Blast Records debut and the first since the death of founding guitarist Jeff Hannemann from alcohol-related cirrhosis in 2013.

Meanwhile, enjoy the official video of the title track from those big ‘ole softies Slayer’s most recent album World Painted Blood and remember that there are countless other animals in need of a good home this holiday season. Be sure to visit your local shelter or humane society and steer clear of the puppy mills this holiday season.
