Scientists in China have created a kitten using cells from the dead body of a beloved family cat.
They were able to successfully clone Garlic the kitten after the original Huang Yu’s pet cat Garlic passed away from a urinary tract disease.
The pet-cloning outfit has made more than 40 pet dogs — a procedure that costs a hefty 380,000 yuan ($53,000), while the price for a cat comes in at 250,000 yuan ($35,000).
The Chinese biotech company, Sinogene now hopes to roll out the service which costs around £29,000.
“Whatever the origin of pets, owners will see them as part of the family. Pet cloning meets the emotional needs of young generations.”
