I bought this cat for myself, I am a student and I live on my own and it can be quite lonely sometimes. I absolutely love this cat! The cat is very soft and has a bit of weight to it. It makes it look (and feel) very real. Ofcourse, the real deal is different, but I think this can be very helpful for people who can't take care of a cat or aren't allowed to have one. I bought it when it was on sale during black friday (otherwise it would've been too expansive for me, because I live in the Netherlands)
My dad loved receiving this cat as his Christmas gift upon our arrival in town to his nursing facility. He's had cats his whole life so since he coulndt have his live kitty from home anymore, cat was very elderly anyways, he was happy for his companion cat. He talked to her and called her stinker and enjoyed being with her! It's funny when the nurses startle when they hear it meow when they walk into his room. Lol There's just some things you can't put a price on and his happiness right now is one of them.
We bought this kitty with little expectation , could have gone either way. My mother in law is 86 and lonely at home, we adore her and I had this crazy idea after reading about these synthetic pets for elders. So I bought a $15 cat bed at store and headed off to the in laws . On the way my own kids named the cat creepy and scary and well you get the idea! We arrive and started to open gifts MommaJane, as I call her, picked up the kitty, named it "princess" and in one moment changed our hearts and minds, she loves this animal , in her own words I don't care that Princess is not real it makes me feel so happy and loved when I rub her belly and she purrs ! I am not generally a super sensitive guy but "Wow" it brought a tear and great joy to me to see how it has affected one woman , who I care so much about for to the positive! Technology can be a boon or to our social detriment! In this case I will chock it up to Joy, something simple , wonderful and unexpected. PS this is my first and probably last product review of any kind!
Just ordered a 2nd one as backup in case of problem with original.
Ordered a month ago for my twin sister who is suffering from dementia. She lives alone in her home with the assistance of part-time caregivers. In the last 6 months a neighbors cat has been spending much of the day with her and the caregivers remarked on the positive change this made in her life. The cat belongs to a neighbors little girl and her father recently talked with the caregiver and told her that my sister was welcome to have the cat during the day but her little girl was very attached to the cat and he worried that my sister might have to leave her house and try to take the cat with her.
I felt I needed to intervene in some way. Perhaps the kind of robot that I'd been reading about would help.
The choice between the $6,000 therapeutic seal from Japan and $39 Orange Tabby was an easy one to make!
My sister bonded with the Orange Tabby instantly. Loves and nurtures and feeds it. Shares more with the people around her. Imputing much of her life history (scattered memories) to the cat and verbalizing these to the cat saying she understands the cats' past life.
All far more than I could ever have hoped for.
My husband has dementia, the cat was bought for him. It is a great comfort for him. He thinks it is a "real" kitty. He strokes and pets it and falls asleep with it. It is a great joy for him.
My family recently had to place my mom in a nursing home for long term care. It was an incredibly difficult and painful decision to make. She has dementia and my 88 year old father could no longer care for her. We worried about the time she would spend there when no one was visiting or during the periods of time with no activities. Because of his, I got her a joy for all cat. She has always been a nurturer, as a mother and grandmother, and has also loved animals. I am happy to say that this was one of the best purchases I have ever made. She enjoys petting the cat and the reactions she gets from her touch. It is truly remarkable what this cat can do. It is very lifelike and although my mother knows it isn't real she enjoys it nonetheless. The nurses and CNAs are all enamoured with her cat as well! She is the most popular resident on the floor! The 'toy' appeals to all ages. My 10 year old niece spent time visiting with my mom and her cat. The interaction they shared was very special and allowed my niece an opportunity to connect with my mom. After taking my mother back to the nursing home after Thanksgiving dinner, she was reluctant to be there as we entered her room. Thank goodness for the cat, which redirected her thoughts and allowed her to settle in calmly. I am so thankful for this companion for my mom!
