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 skill, 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 it's 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,
can note 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.

I have no idea who the author is.
