Adorably Endangered Kitten Born to Domestic Cat Surrogate
“Crystal”, an endangered black-footed cat, was recently born to a domestic cat surrogate at the Audubon Center for Research of Endangered Species. The birth was achieved using a previously frozen embryo, marking the first successful implementation of this method for this species. Last year, the center also pioneered the first in-vitro fertilization of black-footed cats. First mice, now cats, maybe Neanderthals next.
