Trooper the cat and friends pose with Trooper the band.
"So awesome to finally get our 'Trooper the Cat' to hang out with you guys," Linda Sheppard, an animal rescue supporter and fan of both Troopers who reached out to the band, wrote on Facebook. "You made Trooper and 'His Crew' feel like rock stars."
Trooper made headlines and garnered fans around the world after it was found trapped on Feb. 11.
The cat, who lost a hind leg and tail to frostbite in the ordeal, was sent a care package from the band in April. It included a pint-sized T-shirt emblazoned with the title of the band's hit song Raise a Little Hell and an autographed CD.
"When we rescued him we knew we were going to do whatever we could for him, but we never dreamed that it would go this far," Gwen Samms, president of the Society for the Care and Protection of Animals in Stephenville, told QMI Agency at the time.
The band has been inundated with pictures and messages about the cat on its official website.
So when Trooper played a show in Pasadena, N.L., last weekend, Samms took the cat to meet the band.
Trooper has nearly 4,000 fans from around the world on a Facebook page created in the kitty's name, and supporters have donated nearly $12,000 for its medical bills.
