if anyone cares, the cats were actually born in September.

These three little kittens were born in September to the world's first cloned cat. Two of the kittens take after their mother, while the third, left, has a gray coat like his father.

COLLEGE STATION, Texas - The world's first cloned cat just became a mother — and she even did it without test tubes. Copy Cat, who was cloned by Texas A&M University researchers in 2001, had three kittens in September. Mother and kittens are doing well, said Duane Kraemer, an A&M veterinary medicine professor who helped clone her and has been taking care of her since.

"They're cute, and we thought people ought to know about the birth," Kraemer said. "But we're hoping it doesn't cause the same frenzy CC did."

CC got worldwide attention after she was cloned at Texas A&M, which has cloned more species than any institution in the world, including cattle, swine, goats, horses and a deer.

not from what u read. they are just tracking them and trying to make sure they are healthy and have the same life span as kittens whose mother is not a clone :)
