The Basepaws Cat DNA Test helps cat owners learn about their cat’s breed, health, traits, and habits – all with just a bit of DNA, collected at home. Is your cat a Western Maine Coon? An Eastern Burmese? Or a perfectly adorable polycat? Using our world-class database of feline genetics, Basepaws can estimate your tabby’s origins to more than 17 breed types and four breed regions. Your cat’s DNA will be able to say so many of the things they can’t. Using the latest science we can show if your cat has any health risks in their genes. We have manually curated health markers for every sample we have sequenced and can recognize 40+ markers representing 17 genetic diseases including: Polycystic Kidney Disease (PKD), Hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM), Retinal degeneration, Hypothyroidism. You’ll find out if your cat is a Tiger, Cheetah, or maybe even a Lion when we compare your cat’s DNA with the 37 common cat species. It’s may explain your kitten’s roar-like meow. When you join Basepaws, you are joining a community that is constantly evolving. Our database grows larger on a daily basis, so when we have updates for your cat’s report, we send you updates. “Like any overly attached, co-dependent pet parent, I’d like to understand my cat in every way: intellectually, emotionally, spiritually-and even on a cellular level. The first three are always going to be somewhat elusive, but it’s 2019, the future is now, and I’ve found a company to help me with the fourth.” – Caitlin Schneider
