Morris- Resident Cat of The Crescent Hotel
Birth: May, 1973
Eureka Springs
Carroll County
Arkansas, USA
Death: Oct., 1994
Eureka Springs
Carroll County
Arkansas, USA

Morris was the resident cat at the BEAUTIFUL, historic, famous (and haunted?) Crescent Hotel in wonderful Eureka Springs, Arkansas. While wandering the grounds of the hotel, I happened upon Morris's grave in the garden area, and was touched that he was such a beloved and important part of the hotel's history. There is also a memorial plaque in the lobby of the hotel, with a tribute to him, that reads, "In Memory of Morris, the Resident Cat at the Crescent Hotel, He filled his position exceedingly well,The General Manager title he wore, was printed right there on his own office door, He acted as greeter and sometimes as guide, Whatever his duties, he did them with pride, He chose his own hours and set his own pace, The guests were impressed with his manners and grace, Upstairs and down he kept everything nice, They might have had ghosts, but they never had mice, Due to the fact he was growing quite old, he'd doze by the fire when the weather got cold, His years were a dignified twenty and one, when at last he retired his nine lives were done,He filled his position exceedingly well, the Resident Cat at The Crescent Hotel. I also had the pleasure of meeting the hotel's new resident cat, Rufus, at the front desk. RIP, Morris
