Who says the guys in Slayer don't have hearts? The group behind such songs as 'Raining Blood' proved that they weren't immune to the charms of a kitten when, earlier in the week, they resuced one from the streets of Indianapolis.

The encounter took place before their show at the Old National Centre on Thursday (Dec. 4). As their publicist told Nuvo.net, "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."

The venue posted the above photo to its Facebook page, which prompted a reply from the kitten's new owner (along with another adorable picture) in which she thanked the band and her friend. "I named her Gypsy!" she wrote. "I gave her a bath last night then she slept for five hours on the heating pad. She's at the vet this morning being treated for fleas and worms."

Of course, this story does cause us to wonder if was 'Divine Intervention' that prevented little Gypsy from spending more 'Seasons in the Abyss.'
