In the news today, the first cloned pet has been delivered to a woman who, for a mere $50,000US, has had her beloved departed cat cloned. As you can see in the CNN news story , the kitten is adorable, but really -- aren't they all.
I dunno, I love my cats, but as far as I am concerned, when they are gone, I am going to miss them dearly, but alas, they are gone. I would rather hold the memory of the original than to try to create a copy.
Now, spending 50 grand on a pet may be an indication of having more money than common sense, but personally, even if I had enough discretionary income to be able to afford a $50,000 copy of a beloved pet, I would rather go to the animal shelter, and rescue a kitten that is already born and is desperately in need of a good home.
But then, that is my opinion. What would you do?
