Big News: Now Only 4-6 Weeks From Sample to Report!

At Basepaws, we have a cause for celebration - from June 15th, we are officially making our health and breed report generation timeline 4-6 weeks. This means you will now be able to get your cat’s report 4-6 weeks after their sample reaches our lab. We are very excited to be able to offer this timeline to our customers, as it constitutes a substantial improvement over our previous timeline of 6-9 weeks.

Why Should I DNA Test My Cat?

Our cat's DNA make-up matters. All the information required for the functioning of every little bit of your cat's body is written in the genes. Luckily, with Basepaws, discovering your cat's genetic background, ancestry and health predispositions have now become a lot easier and less expensive than ever.

How Were Cat Breeds Created?

According to ancient feline DNA analysis, domestic cats are likely descended from the African wildcat (lat. Felis silvestris lybica) several thousand years ago. However, selective cat breeding only appeared over the last 50 years, which in evolutionary terms is a very short time for robust genetically different sub-populations within an animal species to form.
