Eugeria's Take

One of our team even mentioned that it reassured her in the same way as when her cat sits on her lap.

Elders who tested it also mentioned that the heavy plush felt good, noticing that they were more relaxed and calm.

Hello, I would have liked a more realistic color cat. But I understand that blue can be a soothing color. Thank you.

I really appreciate the products offered by Eugéria for people with cognitive disorders. I bought the simplified TV remote control, the blue cat, the clock and the robot cat. Your videos are also very useful. Thank you for being there for our loved ones affected by a degenerative disease. Michel
