    I wonder if you can have one in a "no pets" allowed apartment?

    "...exploration and search-and-rescue missions..." when and if the cat-like robots decide to in their own good time, of course.

    They only work 4 hours a day and have to be recharged often.

    No offense, but if I'm covered in rubble from a recent building collapse. The last thing I want to see is some sort of fake cathead looking at me. :scared:

    [Nods at Steely]

    With those big, glowing, scary eyes! Those are hard enough to take when you're sitting on the potty, minding your own business, and the kitty critter has eased the door open unbeknownst to you. You glance over and, "Oh. My. Gawd!!!! What the....!!!"

    You and SD have me in stiches. I guess I never thought of it from that point of view.

    BUT Would you want a mechanical HEADLESS cat bounding towards you? Fifty shades of Ichabod Crane.:scared:

    Yes, as long as the mechanics aren't covered to look like a real cat and there isn't a bloody stump where the head should be, but that's just me. :dunno:

    Definately needs a head. Like the Headless Horseman. I guess you could always stick your own on it , like a Barbie head, Mister Potato head, squirrel or chipmunk head if you have a spare one, etc.

    Actually if they covered the mechanics to make it look like a cat, and gave it a cat's head, and programed it to purr, it would be very re assuring for a trapped child.

    Don't want much, do I. :blushing: But after all they have figured out already, a fake fur coat and a purr should be a piece of cake. Oh, and a head! Must not lose our head. :floorlaugh:

    Remember Blade Runner? Maybe there is a future in mechanical pets...no messy litter boxes, no spooning stinky cat food from cans, no pet sitter needed,no alergies, no cat hair on clothes, and no unexpected litters. Sanitized Pets R Us! :(

    No scratched-up furniture or legs or hands and arms. No mistaking feet moving underneath covers for an enemy to be annihilated. No posts that look like this:

    And furthermore, I think.k3;lk23n4;k323ikuadsp7f-9d879;kj;kjjejiuiji

    And no more 2:00 a.m. calls to friends and family who call right back and complain that "YOU" called them and would only "breathe funny" into the phone.
