Beloved Twin City Cat Inspires Humane Society Fundraiser

Jared Alcorn

For the last decade, Truck the Cat's home was at Waiting Room Records in Uptown Normal. The long haired black cat with white cheeks and belly lived in the store. She could often be seen napping under one of the record bins, or walking the aisles, or even behind the counter. 

Truck died last month.  Tomorrow (Nov. 13) Waiting Room Records will host a fund raiser for the Humane Society of Central Illinois in honor of Truck.  During Morning Edition, store owner Jared Alcorn told GLT's Jon Norton how Truck found a home at the record store.

Jon Norton is the program director at WGLT and WCBU. He also is host of All Things Considered every weekday.
