The Norwegian Black Metal scene has always been one of small and large scandals, but I've never heard of something like this before. Apparently Harald Nævdal, of the band Immortal, has been receiving threatening letters and now somebody has kidnapped his cat! His cat!? Surely that is a new low.

Quarrel with people, by all means. But leave the animals alone, yeah?

The story is here, though only in Norwegian.

ETA: Cat returned, but with serious cuts and bruises. Veterinarian is hopeful that it will survive, but says nothing is certain.

So um, we have cat kidnapping and cat torture!? *rage*

I know! The day after the local newspaper ran this story, the cat returned - but with serious injuries that had been inflicted on it. Some people are just sick.

Katten har kommet hjem nå, men har mange sår og kutt. Det ser ut som noen har mishandlet dem. Folk er onde. Original saken er her (http://www.kjendis.no/2009/10/25/kjendis/metal/dyrenes_nyheter/8722309/) - på norsk.

Sadly it gets worse, as the cat has been returned - but with serious injuries. What kind of sick person would kidnap and the hurt a kittie?

His cat? Uncool.

Very uncool. The cat was returned yesterday, but with serious injuries - and it looks like someone hurt the cat on purpose. I hope they catch the person responsible, because that is just sick.

HIS CAT!!!!

I wasn't sure what Black Metal was, and it's apparently "an extreme subgenre of heavy metal."

So, first, the fact that the guy has a cat is awesome.

WHO WOULD KIDNAP A CAT!!! That's horrible.

*wanders off to hug Trinity...*

Hee. That was pretty much my first reaction as well.;)

But on to the more serious aspects of the case - the cat has been returned, but with serious injuries. That appears to have been inflicted upon it. In cases like this I kind of agree with my old grandma, that some people deserve a good thrashing.

Here in Canberra we had a horrible case of someone torturing his pet ferret and filming it. As a result, these days people have to be licensed to own a ferret.

I am really very disgusted by people harming their pets like that - the creatures are helpless and completely at the mercy of their owners. Sigh ...
