Today I was meant to remember.

At the local hardware store you can buy most anything, as well as,  ship a package, eat popcorn, or pet the cat in the basket on the counter. 
The store cat is black with a a blotch of white under his chin. 
His name is Lightening.

I take pause and remember another Cat on the Coast, the one in the photo.  Black with a patch of white under his chin.  Fast.   Nothing  in the yard got past him. Not deer, coyote, fox, dog, cat, mouse or bat.  A fifteen year watch he had. Family pet,  but more than.   His name was Lightening.
