Glowing Cats: I want one!

If this isn’t the whole point of science in the 21st Century, I don’t know what is: Glowing Cats.

South Korean scientists have cloned cats that glow red when exposed to ultraviolet rays, an achievement that could help develop cures for human genetic diseases, the Science and Technology Ministry said.

Three Turkish Angora cats were born in January and February through cloning with a gene that produces a red fluorescent protein that makes them glow in dark.
