Of course this is a thing!
Ancestry and DNA kits are flying off the shelves as people look to find out more about their family’s history. Pet owners are now leaping onto that bandwagon as well. The first-ever cat DNA kit will be displayed at the Consumer Electronics Show this week in Las Vegas. Basepaws’ test kit reveals the genetic breakdown of the cat, with results that tell you what breeds your cat’s DNA contains and even if any wild cat genes are part of the mix. Anna Skaya, founder and CEO of Basepaws says, “DNA research has revealed a vast amount of useful, often life-saving information for humans. We want to facilitate those same kind of breakthroughs for cats.”
