Metal Cats book is out - NYC release party w/ Belus & more

By this point, perhaps you’ve heard of the Metal Cats book, which is full of photos of metal musicians with their cats. With BuzzFeed, Huffington Post, Cats, Beavers & Ducks* and more getting in on the Metal Cats rage, you know furry furor is reaching a fever pitch. The book is out now, and we scored a few unpublished photos originally intended for the book: Erik Kluiber of Gypsyhawk is above, and check out Steven Darrow of Sonic Medusa, animal activist Andrew Buchanan Carter and tattoo artist and piercer Alexander Nathan Ward with their feline friends below. Metal Cats is available to order from publisher powerHouse Books right meow.

A book release party is happening in NYC at Union Pool on May 17 with performances by gloomy experimentalist Planning for Burial, sludge purveyors Sea of Bones, doom band Belus (who just premiered a new song over on Invisible Oranges) with between-sets tunes from DJ Jake Boyle. There will also be an art exhibit, raffles (win “Catpathian Forest” prints) and vendors. Check the event’s Facebook page. Tickets are $7 at the door with 100% of the proceeds going to Bobbi & the Strays, a no-kill shelter and rescue center in NYC.

After Losing A Tooth, Norman The Hedgehog Became An Internet Celebrity

Norman and his owner, Instagram user Brett Jessie, can’t help but pose for cute photos with each other. The hedgehog is a goofball – as Jessie like to remind his fans, “doesn’t understand the concept of personal space” and often likes to nestle in Jessie’s beard. His owner was worried when Norman recently lost a tooth, but he says that Norman has gotten used to it and is doing fine.

"One stormy night my girlfriend saw what we thought was a dead sparrow below our balcony. he was barely breathing, covered in ants and completely blind.

We brought him home and put him in a box. after spending a night in our bedroom, he woke us up with high pitched tweeting. we tried feeding him, but without any luck, so we placed him on our balcony. he continued tweeting non stop for three hours.

Finally, his father found him and started feeding him. he brought his chick huge bugs and bread every 10-15 minutes all day long for two weeks straight.

He was getting bigger every day, but he was still blind. i called a vet, and he told me to try simple eye drops. it worked like a charm! he even started hiding from us behind our flowers. soon, his father started showing him how to fly trough the window.

One day he just left – we knew this day would come eventually. we became really worried because that same night, and for the next few days, there was really stormy weather. however, three days later, he came back and fell asleep in one of our pots.”

DJ Shamrock edited a compilation of excerpts from BBC One’s Walk On The Wild Side with voice-overs and music for comedic effect. The result is absolutely HILARIOUS.
