On December 24, 2004, a middle-aged woman in Texas became the first owner of a cloned pet and spent a total of $ 50,000 to duplicate her pet cats through Genetic Savings and Clone (GSC). The case opened a business model for copying pets. Although it was a duplicate cat, the cloned kitty CC had an orange coat instead of the original gray tabby cat. Scientists explained that the color of a calico’s coat is determined by genes on its X chromosomes, and in each cell of a calico’s body, one of the two X chromosomes is randomly inactivated therefore leading to the result.
