No Cat Is Worth This

$50,000.

I say again. $50,000.

That’s more than the average household income in the United States. It will buy you one helluva a car. In many places, it will buy you a home.

For some, it’s the going price for a kitten.

I’ve spent money on cats. Regular readers know I’ve got two purebred pedigreed cats and they weren’t free. They’re both wonderful, but they combined don’t come within spitting distance of that kind of money. I’ve also had cats from pet stores, from shelters, and one who showed up at my door. That one was definitely free. I’ve loved them all.

But fifty grand? Sorry, that’s too much.

And it’s a clone. How vain to attempt the cloning of a human. How conceited to clone a cat. I have no respect for someone so vain and so reckless and so narcissistic.
