The Naming of Cats by lyosha The Naming of Cats by lyosha
But above and beyond there's still one name left over,
And that is the name that you never will guess;
The name that no human research can discover -
But the cat himself knows, and will never confess.

When you notice a cat in profound meditation,
The reason, I tell you, is always the same:
His mind is engaged in a rapt contemplation
Of the thought, of the thought, of the thought of his name...

- T. S. Eliot, Old Possum's Book of Practical Cats

The image is simple and elegant, and the punchline ("Bob") made me chuckle. Such a mysterious-looking cat, secretly contemplating what may be the world's least mysterious name!
