Question about Cloning
I had a cat that was kilt recently. he was my most favourite cat ever in the whole world. it happened almost 6 mos ago and i still sob over him.

There were no remains - he was killed by coyotes. the only thing left was his collar. normally i would throw away any reminders, but this time i kept the collar.

is it possible to get enough dna off of the collar to clone my cat? any info on cloning much appreciated.

and if i could, I WOULD clone him in a heartbeat!!!

Re: Question about Cloning
Current techniques for cloning require more than just an odd bit of DNA - there are special cells that they prefer to work with.

In future it is expected that any cell will do - meaning if a hair follicle is on that collar it may be possible to clone fluffy.

However the clone will NOT be your cat.

What made your cat unique was the time and the experiences that he lived through. Everything from your moods to the time of day he was petted 5 years ago will have a bearing on his unique persona.

Yes the cloned cat may look like him, and may share genetic heritage, however the sum of what made your cat special is lost and no cloning can not replace that.

Re: Question about Cloning
Many animal clone attempts end in failure. The animals just up and die.

Many cloned animals have developed kidney or brain malformations and impaired immune systems, which can cause problems later in life.

Cloned animals that do survive tend to be much bigger at birth than their natural counterparts. Scientists call this "Large Offspring Syndrome" (LOS). Clones with LOS have abnormally large organs. This can lead to breathing, blood flow and other problems.
