DAVIS, Calif. (KGO) -- Now for the ultimate gift for the cat lover in your life -- you've probably heard of those DNA tests to learn more about your ancestry. Well now there's one for your cat.
It is the Feline Genetics Laboratory's cat ancestry test. It uses a DNA sample from your cat to determine if your pet's parents or grandparents belong to one of 29 common cat breeds.

According to the lab, the results are 90-percent accurate. But it's not cheap -- the test will set you back about $120.
