Dear Honey Run Friends,
It is with a heavy heart I write today to share with you the passing of Satchmo, our beloved cat and friend at The Inn at Honey Run. Satchmo showed up at The Inn eleven years ago as a kitten. As with all strays that arrive at The Inn, we adopted him, fed him, and made sure he was healthy with the veterinarian. Satchmo had a big personality, and he will be missed by the staff and guests. If you review our social media and the posts from guests, you will see Satchmo was the most popular attraction at The Inn. He would walk with guests along the trails, take naps in the middle of the parking lot, and greet the staff every morning as they arrived at work. My favorite thing about Satchmo is how he knew the checkout and check-in times. During the checkout and check-in times he would hang around the entrance of The Inn to watch the traffic and get all the attention he could swindle out from each guest passing by. Then, once the traffic quieted down, he would retreat to the outside staff break area and wait for the next staff member to come out and give him attention. In the winter, he would sneak in the front door and curl up under the Christmas trees trying to hide in the fake snow so no one would see him.
He was a great cat and friend to many. He brought a smile to everyone’s face and never found a person he did not like. We were lucky to share this time with him and he will be missed. He was and will always be a big part of The Inn at Honey Run family.
Your saddened Innkeeper,
