No a cloned animal does not have buddha nature. A cloned animal is buddha nature, just as is everything else that arises from emptiness, including the emptiness itself.
If you state it as a cloned animal having buddha nature you are supposing an independent entity that possesses some thing or quality called buddha-nature. Non-self means non-self all the way down.
EDIT: changed "not-self" to "non-self" because that seems more correct.

There is no comfort without pain; thus
we define salvation through suffering.
