SLAYER Rescues Kitten Before Indianapolis Show


According to, thrash metal icons SLAYER and their entourage rescued a cat in Indianapolis and placed it in a new home.

SLAYER‘s publicist Heidi Robinson-Fitzgerald released the following statement to
“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.”

The kitty’s new name is Gypsy.
