Couldn’t help but think of Tama-chan, the station cat in Kishi Japan. Read recent news about her passing away
1. having patches of black and white or of other colors; parti-colored.
2. a piebald animal, especially a horse.
Arabella was furry and piebald and wagged her tail like a dog. She had tusks.
Piebald came to English in the late 1500s from the Middle English pie which references the magpie noted for its black and white plumage, and bald which ultimately derives from the Greek phaliós meaning “having a white spot.”
