Silky makes an ideal companion for anyone unable to own the real thing. She can purr, meow and makes movements just like a real live cat but without the hassle. She will respond differently depending on where you pet her. Especially recommended for anyone with a dementia - read the supporting evidence below:

Give our Companion Cat some love and attention and he will purr and meow just like a real cat. So realistic, he responds differently depending on where you pet him. Leave for a few minutes and he will go to sleep, pat him on the back to wake him up! Battery operated.

Soothing and comforting, Thomas makes a unique companion for anyone who is unable to look after the real thing.

Especially recommended for anyone living with a dementia.

Researchers studying the effects of robotic pets on people living with a dementia found:

'companion cats enhance the well-being and quality of life of individuals with dementia living in a long-term care facility by providing companionship and interaction with their environment, which helps to reduce anxiety and agitation.' They also found that 'introduction of the cat would prompt an overwhelmingly positive response welcoming the cat with a change in posture and effect.' 'Upon stimulation of the cat, the participants would have increased acknowledgement, interaction and positive regard towards the cat.' James Madison University (12.12.2018)
