Of course cats love metal. Nothing else in the world could be this obvious.
Cats and metal go together like Oreos and milk, peanut butter and chocolate, spaghetti and meatballs (is it obvious how hungry I am?). There's no doubt in my mind that our Cat Overlords spend much of the time at their meetings listening to a healthy dose of metal. Come to think of it, they're probably the ones who started all the rumors that metal is music of the Devil. They probably did it just for a laugh.
