Robotic Companions. Anthro furry or human like.

In the not to disant future personal robots are likely going to be showing up in
homes for aid, convenience and companionship.

Already we see them mostly as toys, but soon they may look more like funny
humans with faces that interact with you.

Some may not want purely human like forms. Example like a zombie or
a walking corpse. So I imagine there will be mlany forms and shapes

Personally I would find one that looked like my avatar to be more fun as
a companion. Though a humanoid form would probably be better to help
around the house.  I am sure a vast variety will be available eventually.

I think people in general would be more excepting to an animal or pet like face. Slightly elongated muzzle and possibly more human like teeth. Smooth plastic finish with a possibility of hair in a style to identify it as male of female. For most cultures it would also have to be fully dressed.
It's been said that rats can gain access to your home by climbing up threw your toilet. I prefer to use the front door.

I choose anthro. Why not? I've wondered what it would be like to live in a world where anthros existed, and it would be a cool way to get a taste of that.
