An ode to my daddy.
What's In A Name?
You named me Noble because you thought it fit me.
You watched me grow from a kitten.
You held me as I dreamt of dogs.
You let me bite your neck when I was still feral.
You took me from the cold, cold forest-
when no one else was there.
Instantly, you fell in love with me.
Instantly, I became yours and you became mine.
There's something about the human and animal relationship-
it's magical the way it works.
I see love in your eyes when I headbutt you for a kiss.
I see a smile on your face when I paw you for attention.
I hear music in your voice when you praise me.
I wouldn't have it any other way.
You named me Noble because you thought it would fit me.
You call me the Noblest cat.
And, trust me on this one, if it came down to it;
I would always be there to help you.
I'll comfort you when you're down.
I'll purr when you need a friend.
I'll kiss you when you need protection.
I'll always be noble.
I'll always live up to my name.

How nice of you to write this, Noble.
I'm sure you live up to your name; I can tell that you do!
