Still have questions about CatKit results?

Genetics will revolutionize the way we take care of our cats, but we’re just getting started. Your cat’s first report will include useful information about their breed and an interesting similarity to wildcats. Future reports will focus on your cat’s health and other traits. Keep in mind - Basepaws is still in the early stages of building up the database and we are learning new things every day! This means we need many more samples, as well as your patience. In return, we are providing the first customers with unlimited updates for the life of your pet.

As our database grows and more cats join us, our ability to make new discoveries will improve. With each sample, we get closer to understanding breed profiles, diseases and traits. Some of these may take only a few short months, while others will take years. We are doing our best to find cats who share common genetic diseases and collect their samples to achieve key discoveries quicker. See our blog for more information about key work and many of these diseases.
