Company Says It’s Ready To Clone Cats

Genetic Savings & Clone has announced they are ready to clone cats.

Genetic Savings & Clone, a pet gene banking and cloning company, reports that it is ready to begin cloning cats for customers following the June birth of two reportedly healthy kittens that were cloned by chromatin transfer.

The company, founded in 2000, reports it has banked the DNA of hundreds of animals and plans to clone nine cats in 2004-three belonging to staff and six for clients. The company says it will deliver the clones to clients by the end of the year and plans to start a commercial dog cloning business in 2005.

According to an Associated Press report, clients are paying $50,000 for each clone. Clients wanting to preserve their animal’s DNA reportedly pay an initial $900 fee and $150 annually.
