A room haunted by a woman and her cat? Sounds like my future. All joking aside, this video provides a brief narration of Abby Byr a former owner of the hotel who, along with her cat, died of heartache and starvation in her room after her husband left her. Some people say that the cat toys strewn across the room brings out the cat’s presence and others occasionally catch a whiff of Abby’s perfume.
