'Cuddle Clones' is a new service for pet owners who just don't know how to say goodbye. Despite what its name suggests, the service does not actually clone your dog or cat. Instead, it offers highly detailed and customizable stuffed animals. All you need to do is submit at least one photo (multiples are recommended). The service lets you pick the eye color, tail position and ear position to ensure that the end result is as lifelike as possible.
Cuddle Clones offers large stuffed-animal animals for $199 and smaller pets for $129. That may sound like a lot to spend on a stuffed animal but the end result is quite impressive and incredibly detailed, and the company donates a portion of each purchases to pet-related causes.
