    "The kitten cost its owner $50,000 and was created from DNA from her beloved cat, named Nicky, who died last year."

    "He is identical. His personality is the same," the owner, Julie, told The Associated Press in a telephone interview. Although she agreed to be photographed with her cat, she asked that her last name and hometown not be disclosed because she said she fears being targeted by groups opposed to cloning.

    "It's morally problematic and a little reprehensible," said David Magnus, co-director of the Center for Biomedical Ethics at Stanford University. "For $50,000, she could have provided homes for a lot of strays."

    He he... considering the amount of pet food consumed each year , it's not a crime...

    I think you have a problem if you became so attached to a cat that you have to buy a clone , though.

    we had a discussion about that at work. pictured at the bottom of the paper was the cat clone and the article talking about how the owner dropped 50 grand. only 5 or 6 inches above it was a picture of a starving kid from Grozny, clad in 1920s-style clothes, dirty and crying while begging for food and or cash. then i pointed out a guy who was convicted for murder and ordered to serve two life sentences. rob said once he's gonna die they should clone him and make his clone serve the second life sentence. now that's what i call TEXAS JUSTICE.

    I figured something like this would happen sooner or later. I hope the cat ****s on her bed while she's sleeping in it.

    People need to realize that clones are equivalent to twins. I've known a few pairs of identical twins over the years, and they're quite different from one another, despite sharing the same genetics.

    Not to mention the slight ...problem the degenerated telomeres present.

    I like cats, sometimes. I like them because they remind me of miniature tigers, but their habits can be a problem. We had cats for years, but they became too much of a problem. They clawed up furniture, stunk up the house, and crapped and peed on stuff. We had a female cat that would pee on stuff to mark it just like a male cat does. It didn’t do it all the time, but enough to ruin expensive things.

    Then the last straw came when I walked into the bedroom and saw this cat crapping right in the middle of our bed. This was a cat that was trained to use a cat box, but on this day it decided to go on the bed. We got rid of all the cats after that.

    Cats suck. Anyone who likes cats should get cancer.

    Cats are like tiny tigers or lions. That's the only thing that appeals to me because i think lions and tigers are cool.

    Tigers and Lions are cool. They aren't pampered pansey animals. Cats? Tiny Tigers? I think not!

    Cats strut their shiit around like they are the most emaculate thing to ever come into contact with your eyes. They prance about giving you that narrow slight gaze before perking their head up over to the kitty litter. It isn't enough that you rescue them from the ghetto pet shop, you have to EARN their respect and affection by pampering them and putting up with their bullshiit. Cats are the spoiled, rich white biitch of the animal kingdom.
