Ode to Spot

Felis catus is your taxonomic nomenclature,

An endothermic quadruped, carnivorous by nature;
Your visual, olfactory, and auditory senses
Contribute to your hunting skills and natural defenses.

I find myself intrigued by your subvocal oscillations,
A singular development of cat communications
That obviates your basic hedonistic predilection
For a rhythmic stroking of your fur to demonstrate affection.

A tail is quite essential for your acrobatic talents;
You would not be so agile if you lacked its counterbalance.
And when not being utilized to aid in locomotion,
It often serves to illustrate the state of your emotion.

O Spot, the complex levels of behavior you display
Connote a fairly well-developed cognitive array.
And though you are not sentient, Spot, and do not comprehend,
I nonetheless consider you a true and valued friend.

- Lieutenant Commander Data


May whatever benevolent theological construct that happens to fill your spiritual boots grant you a life that is plum full o’ happiness, success, love, triumph, excellent memories, true friends, satisfying dumps, wonderful surprises and a whole great big pile of good times. 

Same goes for all you atheist types - but you’ll just have to do it all yourself.
