Glow in the dark cat

South Korean scientists have developed cats that glow in the dark!

Oh… so wrong…

The scientists cloned Turkish Angora cats and have manipulated a fluorescent protein gene in the procedure developing a cat that glows a dull red when exposed to ultraviolet beams. It is said that this study could help develop treatments for genetic diseases in both humans and animals.

Hmm… glow in the dark… human stem cell research… hapless kittens…

Oh, all this science talk is making my head spin. I’m still stuck on the ethical part of the experiment!
