A Chinese firm has successfully cloned a pet cat, Agence France-Presse reports.
Sinogene, a Beijing-based company, has cloned more than 40 pet dogs, but the British shorthaired cat Garlic was its first successfully cloned cat, it adds. "When Garlic died, I was very sad," owner Huang Yu tells AFP. "I couldn't face the facts because it was a sudden death. I blame myself for not taking him to the hospital in time, which led to his death."
