  • "Ode to Spot" Lieutenant. Commander Data:

    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 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 counterbalance
    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
