Here’s proof even rough and tough metal heads have a soft side: Slayer recently rescued a homeless kitten.

The band shared the aww story in a statement released to Nuvo (via Blabbermouth).

“[The night of December 3nd, Slayer guitarist] 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.”

The cat, pictured above, has since been named Gypsy.
