I had a very special visitor this last Saturday: Al “Alley Cat” Chernoff from Rescue Ink stopped by on his Harley. Rescue Ink is “an army of tattooed, motorcycle-riding street guys who have zero tolerance for animal abuse and neglect.” Perhaps you saw them recently on Dr. Phil?

They’re based in New York City, but Al, also known as “the cat guy” (he shares his home and heart with 7 rescued cats) lives right here in my hometown of Philadelphia. We had a great visit. I can’t say enough about these guys and their heroic efforts on the behalf of neglected and abused animals.
As you know, I was rescued as a kitten from the streets of Camden, and was lucky enough to be adopted into a wonderful home – with a grand piano! Not all of my furry friends have been so fortunate. But thanks to the efforts of groups like Rescue Ink, many of them have been given a second chance. And like I always say, “Not all cats can play the piano, but we all need a loving home.”
