If you plan to view this Bayville home, which is on the market for $629,000, you may have to cross paths with this black cat in the online listing for the property. “The landing faces a southern exposure window and is a favorite hangout for our 6-year-old cat, Rufus,” says homeowner Lisa McLoughlin, who is selling the house herself.

“Rufus is a native of Bayville,” says McLoughlin. “I adopted him from the Bayville Animal Clinic. He was crying so loud, I couldn’t leave without him.”

The Colonial, circa 1905, is on more than half an acre. It has a rebuilt wraparound porch with a ceiling fan as well as three bedrooms, 1.5 baths, a formal dining room with a built-in hutch, hardwood and ceramic floors, new gas furnace and hot water heater, an outdoor pond and waterfall and a detached, one-car garage.

“The cat does not stay with the house,” says McLoughlin. “He is nonnegotiable."
