Worth the money!
I was waiting for a cat DNA test for awhile. There are so many dog tests out there but nothing for kitties. The test is easy to use, a simple cheek swab. The results were ready in about 6 weeks and gave breed info as well as health marker information. I find the report to be thorough and user friendly. I absolutely recommend this product!
If not for breed, do it for the health markers!
I had 2 of my cats tested, and I'm glad I did. It was not so much for what Breed they are, but for the peace of mind with the health markers. One of my cats is a carrier of something I never heard of, so I have passed this on to my vet. My other cat's health markers are clear. Also, they have updates on your pet's report as time goes by.
Missing pieces to kitty's breed profile no longer a mystery!
Mousecop's results showed a confident match to Ragdoll, Maine Coon and Savannah cat. When I read the traits of these cats it was Mousecop spot on. I was also surprised at the amount of health markers that were tested and that he was only a carrier of Retinal Degeneration!
