(by Commander Data, United Federation of Planets)
Felis Cattus, is your taxonomic nomenclature,
an endothermic quadruped carnivorous
Your visual, olfactory and auditory
contribute to your hunting skills,
and natural defenses.
I find myself intrigued by your
a singular development of cat communications
that obviates your basic hedonistic
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
And when not being utilized to aide
it often serves to illustrate the
state of your emotion.
O Spot, the complex levels of
behaviour you display
connote a fairly well-developed cognitive
And though you are not sentient, Spot,
and do not comprehend,
I nonetheless consider you a true
and valued friend.
