Kat, my first robotic Cat. No pictures do him justice. I made this little friend for a particular show but he now accompanies me pretty often because he is so popular, all the kids want to stroke him!
He interacts and generally is a joy, as well as an occasional pain, just like a real cat but with out all the inconvenience of feeding and the rest and at the end of the day I can turn him off and back on, not like a real one.
We even have a card trick we can do together.
An ultrasonic sensor and a host of servos, a few leds, and you too can have an electronic pet.
Here is a short video of him in action
