Many people are getting their DNA checked to find out their true ancestry and what ethnic background they might really have. Since DNA testing is so popular for humans, it’s now being offered for cats as well.
The $95 CatKit lets you check your cat’s DNA to find out which breed it might be along with other indications of its health and traits such as whether they might be catnip addicts or now. If this information is crucial for you to know about your cat, you can try sending in your cat’s hair or risk sticking a cotton swab inside your cat’s mouth to get a saliva sample. Just make sure when you do this your cat doesn’t claw or bite your hand, mixing your DNA with its own.
