Copy cat!

News that entertainer Barbra Streisand had a dog cloned cast a spotlight on a process that is available to any pet owner who can provide a tissue sample from the animal – and $100,000 (£72,000) to cover the process!
 
Cloning also requires egg cells from a bitch in heat and a surrogate mother to carry the puppies, National Geographic reports, but warns that the pet’s ‘personality’ will not necessarily be replicated.
