Hijinx, the cat who ruled the sideshow at Coney Island, has gone to the Rainbow Bridge. She was 17 years old.
Hijinx lived in rooms above the freak show at the iconic amusement park. According to Goodie Magazine, she once bossed a street gang, and is responsible for the murders of certain other neighborhood residents. By all accounts, she was a very pretty cat, and as soft as a bunny. She counted gossip columnist Liz Smith among her fans.
