Cat Ancestry

Our Basepaws review on cat DNA and the Catkit from Basepaws shows that their test is NOT just a fun cat ancestry, or a cat pedigree test to take a peek into your cat’s history. It has a much more serious intention. You get insights for your cat and you help cats worldwide as well, and this makes it the best cat dna test in our books.

Our earlier review covers:-

  • What is Cat DNA?
  • Describes the DNA cat kit and what the Catkit does
  • Lets you know what Basepaws does with your kitty DNA
  • Gives a guide to what the Catkit results can tell you

We strongly recommend our earlier post. Why? We did a lot of research and hope we made genetics and DNA a lot easier to understand for ordinary cat people so you can really understand kitty DNA.

    This is an awesome product and promises to provide some seriously game changing information as the number of samples increase, and more tests done. Good luck to all entrants…

    Thanks for the chance! Here’s hoping it is us! I guess our @wildeoscarcat will have to be the one who gets it if we win! When he finally writes his memoir he can mention what all it says!

    Oh, I’ve been seeing this for dogs for a long time and wondered if it would ever be available for cats. I would love to win this to learn more about my genetics.


  13. Worked fine for us. Mommy thinks we all have interesting DNA. Does Scylla have Turkish Van in her ancestry. How did Yin and Yang get so HUGE and Chimera so small. Questions, Questions…

    Raffle copter worked fine for us. Our secretary on the other hand if a flake.

    OMC! I would love to know about any of the kitties, but especially my youngest. She has some interesting characteristics and I’ve been guessing since I met her; to really know more would be awesome! And adding to the knowledge base of our feline friends is such a wonderful bonus!

    What a wonderful and GENEROUS giveaway! My DNA is anybody’s guess! They knew ZIP about me at the shelter when I was adopted so it’s tough to imagine what’s hidden away in my DNA. Mom would like to give this a whirl. I hope you had a lot of fun at Blogpaws! We saw a lot of your photos of Kansas City…..looks like a BIG city!

    Hugs, Teddy (and Mom Pam)

    Wow, I never heard of anything like this. Terrific! This is a cool idea. Shoko always has wondered who her dad was and now we’ll have a clue. Love it friends.

    I’d love to use this for one of our cats! I found my sweet Kotoha at just two weeks old (she was a feral kitten and I had to bottle feed her at first). I would love to find out more about her genetics.

    My father-in-law recently talked to my husband and I about buying people DNA kits for the family. It would be wonderful to also have a cat DNA kit. Thanks for the chance to win a kit!

    I would love to use this on our most recent addition to the house. Although it would certainly be fun to test all of our cats! Hope you’re having fun at BlogPaws!

    It sure would make for interesting discoveries about myself! If Minko was still here he would be the ‘tested one’, cause he did not always appear to conform to his meezer standards, MOL!
    Thanks for a chance to win one:)

    I’d love to win a kit. But then I’ll have a hard time choosing which cat to test! MOL! I think this is a fabulous idea because it will be encouraging even more studies and research on cat diseases, which as we know, always lagged behind.

    My ancestry is pretty well documented… Binga’s and Boodie’s, however, are not. So this would be awesome!

    Wow, what an interesting idea! I wonder what my cat’s genetic makeup is. The health and wellness information should be valuable.
