Morris the Casino Cat

Behind the Gulfport Casino there's a tribute to Morris the Casino Cat, whose ashes are interred inside the stone post supporting his miniature statue.

I mistakenly thought the popular "Morris the Cat" TV commercials didn't appear until the mid-1970s, but I checked and learned that the 9 Lives ad campaign began in 1968, so it seems likely after all that this Morris was named after the cat food Morris.
