Mom’s new cat has helped offset the restlessness and agitation. It gives her something to call her own. She is not as lonely because she has her little friend.
My mother has really enjoyed her pet and even gave him a name. She reacts to the dog and it brings her some joy/fun. These are different behaviors we do not see in her otherwise. She is definitely more animated when interacting with the dog.
My wife loves her cat. It has been a constant companion, has helped her to feel less lonely, and keeps her occupied when feeling sad.
The pet provides companionship to my aunt. She treats the robotic pet as if it is real. My aunt has greatly benefitted from the robotic pet.
She smiles whenever she sees her cat and it brightens her day. We should have gotten this pet a long time ago.
