No.  You should if possible have the permission of those who the DNA is
from, as the children are theirs too, but having children is generally best
done with the consent of all (which is usually just 2) of the child's DNA

By what circumstance do you have the people's DNA in the first place?

Non-humans are traditionally property.  If some person owns that cat's DNA,
you should get that person's permission, otherwise it's a found resource.
No one's going to object.  (It can safely be assumed that the cat, like
basically all non-human animals if they were able to consent, would not
object as this would result in children and no further harm to the cat.)
