Abstract

The cat has been considered an important model to study 36 human pathologies and is also a valuable comparative model for assisted reproduction in endangered non-domestic felids. Many researchers have focused their studies on the application to the cat of new technologies such as in vitro maturation (IVM), fertilization (IVF), intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI) and cloning. Only in the last years cat breeders increased their interest for artificial insemination (AI) and sperm preservation. All these techniques, comprised under the term of assisted reproductive technologies (ART), have been developed over the past 30 years but despite this years of research only few techniques are used in the practice by a too small number of practitioners.
