At least, that’s the literal translation of the Japanese name of latest robo-pet in Sega’s growing mech-menagerie.

As the AFP news service reports, “The 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 we know, scratch your face or drag mice in. … The furry faux cat (OK, maybe if you’re allergic…) is set to hit the market in July, but we’re not yet sure for how much. Hopefully by then we will have finally made uneasy peace with the existence of Lucky the robo-dog.”
