Fluorescent Cats

Neatorama has posted several stories about animals that produce fluorescent proteins after gene splicing. Now South Korean scientists have produced cloned cats that produce RFP (Red Fluorescent Protein). The cats glow in the dark when exposed to ultraviolet rays! Three such cats were cloned, and two of the Turkish Angoras have survived to adulthood. -via Metafilter

Easy there swallowtail, I think Rose meant that like "We don't need another reason to experiment on animals." This is a little disturbing & really unnecessary.
