When one thinks of Slayer, one of the biggest and most hardcore metal bands in history, kittens do not immediately come to mind.
Slayer guitarist Kerry King and some of the road crew were having dinner near Occidental College before a gig in when a homeless man showed up, offering assistant tour manager Jess Cortese a kitten, for only a dollar.
The kitten, now named Gypsy, was adopted by Penny Hamilton-Riley, someone who a member of Slayer’s crew knew wanted a kitten. Now that Gypsy has a loving home, fans are not about to forget the event. Shortly after, fan-made “Adopt Kitties and Worship Satan” t-shirts began to emerge.
