January 1994: Slash Sneaks a Mountain Lion Into the Four Seasons
In an attempt to adjust to a quieter life, Slash bought a new home in Los Angeles and filled it with venomous snakes, lizards, eight cats and a mountain lion cub named Curtis. "I installed a full-on reptile zoo over there," he recounts in his autobiography. "Just a gazillion snakes and all kinds of stuff." When the Northridge earthquake hit, his home was left severely damaged, but all his animals survived. Slash then retreated to the Marina Del Rey Four Seasons where he secretly held up with Curtis.
