Love your sick kitty and you don't know what to do? Clone it. That's right, for the paltry fee of $32,000 a pop you can now xerox your beloved pet ad infinitum. Well, that plus $300-$1400 in storage fees for the cells of your pet. The company that provides this service, Genetics Saving and Clone (it's a pun, get it?), is only cloning cats now but hopes to move forward to dogs later this year. You may say "That's ridiculous, no one would pay that much for a cat," but this is the reduced price. Until recently people would pay $50,000 for this service. Almost 200 dog owners are on the waiting list for when the procedure becomes viable.
