Cats from Eureka Springs {USA}

ghosts of crescent hotel

Welcome to the hotel where some guests check out... but never leave!

Many authorities list the 1886 Crescent Hotel in Eureka Springs, Arkansas, as the most haunted hotel in America. Guests see black figures in the mirror, and orbs and ghostly mists in the shape of a little girl. They hear ghostly voices. Books fly through the air. EMF meters go crazy beeping and flashing.

People are so obsessed with the ghosts of this hotel that they forget to mention its most important asset: the cats.

"The first cat was Morris, a yellow tabby who came to the Crescent Hotel in 1979 and remained there until his death in 2000. There's a cat door on the back side of the lobby that was made just for him. Today people still report seeing his ghost roaming the halls," says author Kat Robinson.

"Since then there have been cats on and off at the Crescent Hotel. Frisco and Shadow were born at the Crescent. Frisco loved to sleep in the rooms with the guests. She was a polydactyl cat, meaning she had six toes on each front foot. Shadow, on the other hand, was the shy type. Rufus with his crooked tail was next. Apparently, he loved to attend weddings at the Crescent," continues Kat Robinson.

"The current feline residents are Casper and Jasper who came to the Crescent Hotel on Halloween 2009. Casper loves to stalk dogs that come to the hotel with their owners. Jasper is more comfortable stalking people and loves to swipe at shoelaces as people pass."

Crescent Hotel now cashes in on the haunted hype by organizing ESP weekends and ghost tours. Tours run nightly starting at 8 p.m. and last 75 minutes. "Something bizarre does not happen every night on every tour, but sometimes they do happen," says Keith Scales, director of the hotel's ghost tours department. In any case, even if you don't encounter any ghosts, you are guaranteed to see a bunch of cute cats.

    1. oh you must go if you live nearby. We visit Eureka Springs every June. We don't stay at this hotel but we visit it each time. They allow you to walk around and it has a sky bar at the top that has a wonderful view....we like to go in the evening as the sun is setting and have a couple drinks.

  10. Mom said the word "Yikes" and the word "Whoa" and the word "No way!" when she read this. I think that means she would like to go there sometime...

  20. I've heard about that place. I'd like to visit but I know enough about cats to not go. A cat never yowls at nothing. If you think your cat is screeching at the wall you just aren't seeing what the cat is.

  21. Voilà un endroit où j'aimerais bien faire un petit tour.
    Les chats et les fantômes vont bien ensemble. Ils semblent être connectés à l'autre univers.
    Ces deux chats sont magnifiques.
    Bonne journée

  32. We stayed at the Crescent Hotel over the 4th of July holiday and saw both of these cats! I actually saw Morris the cat on a couple of occasions when I first started going there. He was old and had arthritis but he was well taken care of.
