This black cat with white paws and chest looks so formal I've been calling him Tux, for Tuxedo. I thought of him as mine because I didn't know his history. Now I find his/her name is really Lucy. Oh well.
She silently goes about her business somewhat aloof, but will allow herself to be petted if you know how.
She's probably a good mouser, or crabber, silently stalking the creatures that live in the beach grass. Or maybe she just appreciates nature as I do.
