  Birth of cloned kittens announced
Updated 07 August 2004, 13.08
The cloned kittens
A company in the US has announced the birth of two cloned kittens called Tabouli and Baba Ganoush.

The pair were born in June to separate surrogate mothers and are reported to be happy and healthy.

The company behind the cloning says it can copy anyone's pet for around 30,000 after the idea started with the chief executive's own cat.

They are using a new cloning method that they say is safer and more efficient than traditional methods.

The cloned kittens

They want to be able to offer people the chance to clone their beloved pets.

"For the first time, we are able to offer cat cloning with a very high degree of physical resemblance and with perfect health in terms of the clones. That is what the public expects," A spokesperson said.
