The world's first cloned cat became a mother. Copy Cat (cc), who was cloned by Texas A&M University researchers in 2001, had three kittens in September 20006. Both mother and kittens are doing well.

The father is Smokey, a naturally born tabby.

Two of the kittens take after their mother, while the third has a gray coat like his father.

Why?

Here's another note. I read the researcher who bred cc is planning on keeping all 3 of the kittens. I've seen pictures of them online, and they are so cute.

Kinda brings about questions... what if they start cloning humans?

The kittens are adorable though...

Well, fortunately for us that would be a problem for the "humans forum" and not us here at the pets forum! Wink
