Animal
    (December 22, 2001- )
    Born in College Station, Texas
    World's first cloned pet animal
    Domestic short-haired tabby
    Created by ‘Operation CopyCat’ at Texas A&M University
    Cloned via DNA from a calico cat transplanted into an empty ovum
    Embryo carried by a surrogate
    Project funded by Genetic Saving and Clone (folded in 2006)
    It is unclear if CC stands for ‘Carbon Copy’ or ‘Copy Cat.’
    Although a clone, she is not identical to her biological mother.
    None of the other 86 embryos created by this project survived to full term.
    Genetic Saving and Clone was solely interested in cloning pets for profit.
    The Humane Society denounced pet cloning as frivolous and wasteful, noting ‘There are millions of cats and dogs in shelters.’
    The original aim of the project was to clone a dog rather than a cat.
    She has a frisky, outgoing personality.
    She has none of the health problems common with cloned animals.
    The technology used to clone her may also help preserve endangered species and advance medical research.
    Once confined to a sterile lab, she now lives with a scientist involved with the project.
    She gave birth to three healthy, normally conceived kittens (September 2006).
    The team that created her stressed that ‘cloning is reproduction, not resurrection.’
