Have you ever taken your pet on tour?
Unfortunately, we have not but I think we’re all advocates for a tour cat!
Who looks after your pet while on the road?
Our girlfriends/wives usually keep an eye on our pets to make sure they’re staying safe!
What’s your pet’s favorite song or album?
I’m pretty sure that for most of us cat owners, Breaking The Law by Judas Priest is their favorite song!
How did you introduce your pet to metal?
Tom: My cats love to itch their faces on my guitar and sit in front of the amp while I’m playing at home.
What animal charity means most to you?
I think it’s safe to say that Kitten Rescue in Los Angeles has a pretty large place in our hearts. We’re mainly a cat band and they do some amazing work for strays and making sure they go to loving homes.
