Sega Toys' new "Yume-Neko Venus," or "Dream Cat Venus"

Is there a feline equivalent of the uncanny valley?

This robo-cat is equipped with touch sensors that let it engage in such real-life feline behavior as purring, moving its legs when you rub its belly, and sleeping a lot.

It will not, as far as I know, scratch your face, bite your ankles unexpectedly, or drag mice into your bed as gifts.

.. As far as I know.

Here's a video, look into those black lifeless eyes!
