This wiki has been updated 8 times since it was first published in July of 2019. There's nothing as heartwarming as having an adorable kitty climb into your lap and start purring. If you can't keep a cat in your home, though, you might want to consider getting a robot version instead. These selections look, sound, and act like the real thing — without tearing up the furniture, covering you in hair and dander, or any of the other annoying aspects of pet ownership. When users buy our independently chosen editorial picks, we may earn commissions to help fund the Wiki. Skip to the best robot cat on Amazon.

Editor's Notes

July 13, 2019:

There are two basic types of these cats: the cute and furry kind that are as much fun to cuddle as they are to play with, and those that are more like robots. The latter can typically do more things, but the fact that they look like cats seems somewhat incidental. The adorable ones are a better choice for users who want to feel like they're playing with an actual cat.

The Zoomer Meowzies Viola represents something of a compromise between the two, as it has a soft, fluffy tail tacked onto its hard plastic body. It's capable of performing a variety of tricks and activities, which should keep kids entertained for hours. Don't expect it to put an end to the demands for a real pet, though.

Roarin' Tyler and Flurry, My Baby Snow Leopard aren't household cats, but it's hard to argue that they're not adorable. Their exotic nature means that they'll be eagerly received by kids who already have cats in the home — and they may even save you a trip to the zoo.
