Metal musicians are known for being fans of cats, so much so that Alexandra Crockett published, Metal Cats, a photo book of metal musicians with cats. But hard rock and heavy metal stars don't limit themselves to one furry friend. Rush's Geddy Lee dresses his dogs, Lucy and Stanley Wasserman, up for holidays. And Alestorm's Christopher Bowes isn't ashamed to show his soft side when he cuddles with his ferret, Bunbun.
Plenty of celebrities have pets who they love to take photos with, but there is something especially charming about metal musicians who go home to cuddle with their fur friends after a long day of screaming about the failures of the world at large.
