Well we are a little closer to the end of evolution. This could be the first attempt to make cloning acceptable. If the public gets comfortable with
the idea of cloning beloved household pets it will make the human cloning transition easier to accept.
“Now cats may have more than nine lives. The company that funded the first successful cloning of a domestic cat two years ago has gone commercial.
“An e-mail sent in early February to the company's gene-banking clients offered to clone up to six cats. The cost? U.S. $50,000 each. Clients had
less than a month to take advantage of the offer, which ended Friday, February 27”.
“Ben Carlson, vice president of communications for Genetic Savings and Clone, said four clients signed up to duplicate their cats, and work to
reproduce the pets will begin immediately.”
“The company is also working on duplicating dogs”
