Still have questions about CatKit Results?

In order to decipher your cat's DNA, it needs to be compared other cats. For every cat trait, we will compare your cat to a different number of cats depending on how simple or complex the trait is.

Sometimes a trait is very simple: it is caused by a single gene mutation, like the missing tails on the Manx cat. When only one gene is responsible, it is easier for us to pinpoint the location of a trait to your cat's DNA. You will receive reports about traits like this as soon as ten or more cats with the same trait have joined Basepaws.

However, many of your cat's health and personality traits are determined by multiple genes. For instance, there could be 5, 20, or even 100 genes that each contribute a little bit to your cat's outspoken personality. Traits like this will take 100 or more similar cats to locate the responsible genes.

As more cats join Basepaws, CatKit reports will grow.

Genetics will revolutionize the way we take care of our cats, but we’re just getting started. Your cat’s first reports will focus on your cat’s ancestry. Future reports will focus on your cat’s health and other traits.

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

Your cat is a DNA pioneer and will create the golden standard for its genetic code. We want to know everything about your cat, now and as they age. In the future, when a little kitten gets tested and has very similar DNA to your cat, they can consider your cat their mentor and know what to expect.

When you join Basepaws, you are joining a proactive community of cat lovers. Basepaws members are truly DOING something to help improve the lives of all cats.
