You guys already covered the whole "how the hell would a kitten survive a trip to Africa in a duffel bag thing" yesterday. So today I'll share an SoSF Exclusive: meet the real-life Dan. My trusty Google skills led me to this article on the Staten Island Advance website about Danny Messina, who was part of TB's Kilimanjaro climbing party in February of 2010. Dan is senior vice president and COO of the CentraState Healthcare System, and is on the board of directors at Seton Hall University (where I found his headshot, above). The article gives some details about the trip, and there are some photos, too, including this one of Messina with the "Pulitzer Prize-winning [sic] cartoonist".
