It's hard to speak for whoever was deeply involved in making them, but I think it's just a reflection of how much the designers love cats. Imitation is a form of flattery. That's how I view this. No video link?

I wouldn't say I was offended by their existence, but after watching the video, I found them a bit sad perhaps. It shows people showing affection for these robots. Unless you really liked cats, but were...I don't know...highly allergic, and couldn't own one, I don't understand the purpose.
I can appreciate the technology behind it, though. Like I posted before, their movements are pretty lifelike!
