The cats know their own names and can recognize it when we talk to them, a new study shows.

A North Carolina couple paid a cool $25,000 in order to make a clone of their beloved cat had been with them since they were a couple.

Bryan and Ashley Bullerdick has decided to make a double rescue cat, Cinnabun, when the cat is approaching her 19th birthday.

They had hoped that the cat would have to meet with a genetic twin, but sadly passed away before the clone, also called the Cinnabun, has arrived.

Unbelievable but true, the new Cinnabun is sleeping in exactly the same place as the original Cinnabun used to have to sleep on the top of Ashley’s kiss.

The Charlotte couple claimed that they don’t even have to take into account the distribution of the costs of the “clones” of their “special dog”.

“I’ve never really thought that much about the money,” says Bryant, 43, is the owner of an aerospace division of a business. “It was a very special cat in that time we, and our children have grown up with a cat, and they had to be important.”

“She was sleeping next to my wife’s head on the pillow at night, every night. If we are to have any chance of getting another cat, if we were to try it,” he continued. “It’s a lot of money, but I do know some people who are on vacation all the time. This is an animal that we hope will be with us for the last two years.”

“Some people have sports cars, some have houses, we’re not that there are “clones” of each and every cat that we have,” He said. “It was a decision that we could afford to do it, and we can still make a donation to a cat rescue and with the Humane Society every year.”

The North Carolina couple paid $25,000 for a clone of their cat, Cinnabun, which she did, because she was the bride and groom.

The parents of a Beau, 17, and twins, Carter and Daryl-Von, 15, and I have no regrets about the workings of their adored a domestic long-haired cat, and would have to clone it again.

“Certainly, We would like to do it again,” Ashley, 41, said.

The couple wed in 1999, and began the life of a couple and their two cats, Cinnabun, was adopted from the Humane Society, and Ginger in a Himalayan purchased from a breeder.

“She was very special to us. They started out their lives with us,” the father recalled.

Ginger passed away at the age of seven, but He was able to track down the feline’s dad, and buy a kitten for $2,000.

However, in the past year, the couple have to worry about not being able to get it from somebody else in the same line as the Cinnabun.

“We were worried about how little time we had left with her,” He said.


The couple were considered to be clones and after that He read an article about a pop legend, Barbra Streisand clone of her Maltipoo, Sammie. He shared the idea with the union army, which, at first, was not sure.

“I’ve never been to, but it was definitely something I had to think about it,” She remembered.


In August of 2018 and beyond If you purchased at $1600, a DNA kit, a Texas-based cloning company, ViaGen Pet, the same company that had been cloned, Streisand’s pooch.The company has been in the cloning of horses and cattle, and for 17 years, three-and-a-half years ago, she started with the cloning of cats and dogs.

The cloning of a dog, it costs $50,000, whereas a cat’s is now $35,000 as ViaGen Pet has recently increased the compensation by $10,000 to cover the costs. The difference in price is due to the dog to go into heat only once or twice a year, while a cat’s reproductive cycle is much more frequent.

Bryan and Ashley’s DNA kit languished in the freezer and when they are discussed.

“We’ll put up with it for months in our freezer, as we thought about it,” ashley said. “We felt that we had to do it. Cinnabun was so sweet and kind to us. They came up with a unique mark that no other cat would do.

“She clung to me, slept with me at night, my head on my pillow. She was by my side throughout the day, ” she said.

For the cloning of an animal, ViaGen Pet that requires at least two of the skin samples to collect DNA. The majority of the skin samples may be taken from the abdomen or the inside of a pet’s leg. These samples will be kept cool with ice packs and sent to a laboratory where they are placed in an incubator and the cells start to grow.

Within two to four weeks, there were millions and millions of cells. The cells are then harvested and placed into vials, which were frozen in the liquid nitrogen storage tank.

Melain Rodriguez, client services manager at ViaGen Pet, he said, “It has to be maintained in this frozen state will last forever. We will have a cells of the, 17 years ago, which has already been saved.

“Most of our customers choose to store their pet’s cells, because the process is so expensive,” Rodriguez detailed.

“It’s a lot of money, but I do know some people who are on vacation all the time. This is an animal that we hope will be with us for two decades now,” He said to the clone.

This genetic conservation, costs $ 1,600, with an annual $150 fee for the storage.

In the next step of the cloning procedure, a donor egg is made from a suitable donor animal. The nucleus of the egg cell is removed, so that there is no DNA, and has been replaced by one of the millions of cells that have been cultured in the laboratory.

“The egg and the cell are to be combined in our patented process. In essence, the egg is fooled into thinking it is fertilized by a sperm cell,” the Team explains.


The embryo is implanted into a surrogate animal who gives birth to the kittens, is genetically identical to the original cat.

Bryan and Ashley, sent in the samples and the samples of Cinnabun DNA, ViaGen Pet is in September of 2018, but it turns out the original Cinnabun died on the 30th of October.

“I knew that she had a good life,” She remembered. “I gave her the best life I could for almost 19 years, and I knew that if she died, I would have her back in the game.”

“It gave me great comfort to me to know that I would see it again and again with the new Cinnabun.”

The clone was born on the 4th of February, and after a couple of weeks, with a surrogate mother, was flown to the Bullerdick family on the 3rd of April.

The new Cinnabun, pictured, has flown back into the Bullerdick family on the 3rd of April.

“It was a very special day of the course. Cinnabun is in a grey color, so I just wore it with a gray top, as I thought it would be nice, ” ashley said. “I was so happy to have her in the house. She was just two months old, but she looked just like her.

“Even though we have the original Cinnabun when she was nine months old, you can see that the two-month-old Cinnabun overwhelmed me with joy,” she said. “As far as looks go, they are spot on. Their personalities are so similar to each other. They are both in love.”

“The new Cinnabun wants to sleep in the exact same spot as the original Cinnabun, a place that none of my other cats have gone,” She read. “It was nice to get to fall asleep with my head on my pillow, and one bar stool in the kitchen.”

“We wanted to call the new cat, Gas Gas, but when we saw the pictures of her, and she looked identical to a Cinnabun when she was a kitten, so we just kept the same name,” He shared.
