Media about us
Bert was plucked off the streets of Harlem a few years ago and brought to the shelter where I adopted him, but I don’t know anything about him prior to that. And like any overly attached, co-dependent pet parent, I’d like to understand him 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 2018, the future is now, and I’ve found Basepaws to help me with the fourth.
Have you ever wondered where your cat gets their fluffy tail from? Thanks to a cat breed DNA test, you can learn about their traits and possible diseases they may obtain throughout their life. Purchase a cat DNA kit today to learn more about your cat’s ancestry.
This cross-species database of genotypic and phenotypic data will be the first of its kind to positively affect the health of members of the family.
As the first cat care company focused on the building blocks of genetics, Basepaws aims to not only analyze the genetics of your cat, but to also build a database of feline genetic data that will help to make new connections and discoveries in cat health.
