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 defences.
I find myself intrigued by your sub-vocal 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 counter-balance.
And when not being utilized to aid in locomotion,
It often serves to illustrate, the state of your emotion.
Oh 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.
