Have you seen Little Nicky, the cloned cat?


Little Nicky, the cloned cat by Genetic Savings and Clone, Inc., is pictured in early December 2004 in this photo released to Reuters on December 23, 2004. A Dallas, Texas woman stored her cat Nicky's tissue in a California company's gene bank and on December 10, she became the first owner of a commercially cloned feline, dubbed Little Nicky.

2. what a waste of money...
how about going to a shelter and getting a new cat?

Imagine the kind of person that truly can not handle the fact that death is a part of the life cycle???

3. A cute kitten--but how many cats are euthanized each day?
A stupid & selfish waste of money.

4. I've seen this kitten more than I care to
What these people don't seem to realize is that, while the original cat had an awesome attitude, this one might not. The environment is not identical, so the devlopment won't be either.

Yes, I've seen the interviews where they say that they explain this, but come on! People think they can make it happen.

I agree that with all of the animals that are put down because they have no homes, why do this?
