My mother passed away this July, 2016. She had Alzheimers and was 2 weeks shy of here 95th birthday. I had purchased the Calico Cat and the Golden Retriever for her; my sister got her another cat as well from your website. I have to tell you how important those pets were to Mom. She carried them everywhere in her wheelchair with her; she slept with them; she kissed and hugged and petted them. She called them her "kids." Staff made sure she had them with her and other patients thought she was so "cute" with them. Even on her death bed, she held them and kissed them. So we made sure that Mom would never be without her Calico cat; she was placed in the casket with Mom and will keep her company for an eternity. Thank you SO much for these wonderful pets. They are so realistic; Mom believed them to be alive and this gave her both great comfort and constant companionship. She once told me how well behaved they were and how they were no trouble at all! And when they got dirty, staff just threw them into the washer and dryer.. I was hesitant but it didn't hurt them and they came out wonderfully clean, soft and fluffy. I would be glad to visit with anyone who wants to know about the quality of these animals!!! From the bottom of my heart, I thank you!
