When Virginia Smith had to move into a care facility due to dementia, she had to give up her cat.
She had always had cats as pets, and her son wanted to do something--anything--to give his mom the same kind of experience.
So he bought a robotic cat equipped with sensors that react to touch.
These robotic cats have been used in many similar situations with great success.
Watch as Virginia meets her new robotic friend for the first time.
