That article is informative and Frank https://www.tripadvisor.com/ShowTopic-g29750… is interviewed in it. I don't see why they would include a photo of Frank the Feral [not related] with his head off. DH got a photo of Frank the Feral in the dunes & waving & facing the boards infront of the Taj colony in full costume

And AC had a convention just to display how it's done right

"The second oldest, a friendly 18-year-old feline named Genie, recently died. "

I'm thinking that this is the cat referenced in this thread:

Unfortunately, the picture hosted in that thread is no more, so I re-uploaded it here:

Please read and look at the surveillance photos. You folks are in AC a lot so maybe you'll spot them.

Welp, I went looking for Frank the catfeeder and was unsuccessful. I asked someone he works with and had to show the photo and he didn't know. I found his partner and he totally knows Jeannie and said he didn't think so. So today I am posting this black cat as a diversion from worrying about Jeannie https://www.instagram.com/lunasweenraldobar/ ←Luna is cussingly adorable. Take a lookie at the video in slide #3 https://www.instagram.com/p/BW2wozqjnNo/… of her climbing a tree in Brighton Park. The human doesn't speak a heckuva lot and y'all can hear her claws in the pine as she climbs

OK, so if I understand you correctly, the cat I thought was Genie might still be there, correct?

I'm hoping Frank's partner's doubt was correct.

Just talked to the cat caretaker, and was able to confirm that the lap cat that I was thinking of was in fact Genie. He said that she was at least 18, and that he still gets asked all the time about her. She had cancer in her jaw / head that made a big bulge on the side of her head. I will spare you the rest of the details, but I had a cat who had the same issue once, so I understood completely.
