A brilliant invention for elderly cat lovers
Reviewed in Australia on 9 September 2019
Recently my 93 mother's dementia progressed to the point that she requred assisted living in a nursing home. She was devastated that she could not take her two cats with her. She misses them more than anything. I heard about these Joy for All cats and gave her one for her birthday complete with basket and bow around its neck. One of her cats is called Lucy so I purchased a ginger one just like Lucy and named her Lucette. She is Lucy's cousin from Canada that heard of my mother's plight and flew from Canada to be with her. Lucette now has her own collar with her name on it and also mum's name so she can be returned as there are several Joy for All cats in the Nursing Home. The cats do everything that they say on the box purr, meow, wiggle their ears, blink their eyes and offer three modes, movement off, silent and full vocals that are very realistic. The result is that Mum dotes on Lucette as a surrogate for Lucy. I take her other grey cat Chippy to visit her on weekends and a great deal of the pain of separation has been alleviated. I am delighted that she has taken so well to Lucette. My only comment is that is that it is difficult to clean Lucette's fur. Elderly people do tend to be like children and stroke their pets with sticky hands and I would love the manufacturer's to come up with a way of washing their fur more easily because you cannot remove it (of course) to clean it. That is my only comment....however I would definitely buy another one and happy recommend these cats to anyone in a similar situation. Value for Money? Absolutely!!!!
