BEIJING: Seven months after Huang Yu's pet cat Garlic died, the British shorthair was given a 10th life.

"In fact, a large proportion of customers are young people who have only graduated in the last few years," he said. "When Garlic died, I was very sad," said Huang."I couldn't face the fact because it was a sudden death. I blame myself for not taking him to the hospital in time, which led to his death."

A laboratory technician checks samples with a microscope at the Chinese company Sinogene, a pet cloning outfit which has cloned more than 40 pet dogs since 2017, in Beijing. Chen Dayuan - an expert at the Chinese Academy of Sciences who has been researching giant panda cloning for 20 years - said there could even be scope for cats to give birth to cloned baby pandas, which are smaller than baby cats despite their large size when fully grown.
