    Thanks MamaC! That was really interesting. So she's a bit of a crazy lady. I'm just glad that the puppies are all healthy and ok. I hope she treats them very well and doesn't tie them to her bedposts.

    Re: For animal lovers

    Do you guys think pet cloning is a good idea? I've loved all my furry babies so much, but I don't think I would try to replicate one. Not to mention the fact there are so many pets that are homeless, spending $150,000 on cloning seems kind of silly.

    I don't like the idea of cloning anything but for some people, they won't even consider adopting a new pet when their loved one passes away. I personally want only homeless pets never anything from a store.
    Yup, with donuts!!

    I love my boys, but they are all one of a kind. And if I cloned any of my one of a kinds, I would miss out on other one of a kinds that I would meet and fall in love with through the rescue organizations.

    Spending that is silly seeing as how many need homes. As much as I love Joey and as sweet as Mona was, a clone would not be the same.

    That's what I was thinking too. Even if the kitties look identical to our cats, they would probably have different personalities.

    I was going to post a link to this story, too. Quite bizarre.


    on topic:

    I don't think I would clone a pet. Just because it has the same genetic make up doesn't mean it will be the same pet. It just doesn't seem right to me.

    I really like the idea of the different personalities in all of the babies that I have adopted! Each has her own beauty....even the stalker kitty! (Who's still at it, by the way! )

    Re: For animal lovers

    I have had some very unique animals and I have loved them all, but I don't think I could have a clone of any of them. I think that the clone would be a pale shadow of the original and I would be disappointed.
    Besides I echo what others have said, there are so many homeless pets that need homes. I have rescued 5 animals in my lifetime and all have been great pets. I've also gotten pets from breeders, once a pet store and we once bred Rosie which is how we got Bogie. I do think from now on, I would do rescue, the pound or through the paper.

    I think the purpose of cloning should be to help people regrow organs or limbs that they have lost. I don't think it should be used in making new people or animals.

    BTW, that woman is a nutjob. Story has to be true, how can you make some of that up??? Skiing nude down Mt. Everest with a carnation up her nose. OK, that part had me
