Glow-in-the-dark Kittens - Cats are new light source!

You know, I just don't know what to say about this. I know I'm not the only one thinking "Glow-in-the-dark kittens. Really? No, seriously, really?" I just wonder, what could possibly be the good of this outcome.

South Korean scientists say that by playing for fluorescent protein genes in cloned cats it could be useful in helping unravel mysteries of around 250 different genetic diseases. Oh, and cloning kittens could also be useful in helping to clone larger cats like the tiger or leopards that are near extinction.

Sounds reasonable enough I suppose, but do we really need to make them glow? Way to take something cute and cuddly and turn it into something weird and down right scary! Someone call Stephen King, I have an idea for his next book.
