    Well, the Koreans have done it again. Cloning a bunch of kittens from mom's skin cells certainly has some scientific value, but Glow-in-the-Dark kittens? Why?

    To make it easy to find them in the dark? Not too useful since everyone knows the best way to find a cat at night is with a laser pointer. Perhaps they were looking for another energy source! If they could just limit the expression of the glow gene on the tip of the tail, the cat would endlessly chase its tail at night. Think of harnessing the power of a herd of these chimera... free energy for life!

    They're not glow in the dark. They've just been forced to swallow candles.

    I saw a picture of one glowing green the other day. It didn't escape my notice either that the red and green glowing kittens were publicized in time for Christmas either.

    I'm going to have to get working on my green sheep now. :biggrin:

    Hmmm personally I find glow in the dark kittens kind of creepy. I would never get any sleep if my cat glowed....as he seems to like sleeping on the pillow beside me.

    You don't let these sleep on your pillow, you hang them in the Christmas tree.

    Maybe they want to see their lunch when eating in the dark?

    You don't use them for Christmas, they're intended for Halloween.
