Spotlight on Partner Success

INCOG staff loves demonstrating the companion cat!

A family recently contacted staff to know more about the companion cat for their mother-in-law, who had a cat and wanted another one. They didn’t feel she could care for a real cat so possibly this would be the next best thing. At first, her mother-in-law wasn't so sure, but as time went on she began to warm up to the idea of having a companion that only needed love!
