Looking for a low maintenance pet? Consider a robotic dog or cat. This is Faith, my Mom's "dog". She loves her. Faith will bark, coo, and even snore. She turns her head to the sound of Mom's voice. She has been the greatest addition to our family. My Dad passed away in December 2019 and Mom has been so lonely. Then add COVID-19 lockdown. Faith keeps her company and brings her such joy. I cannot say enough about the positive impact she has had on my Mom's day and health--I even get voice mails with just Faith barking. It's too sweet!
