Flourescent Pussies

Oo-er, it's a flourescent pussy. Work of art? No, it's science. The Mayo Clinic in Rochester, USA, inserted into cats a jellyfish gene that produces a fluorescent protein called GFP. They also inserted an antiviral gene from a rhesus macaque that helps cats resist the feline form of AIDS. So the pussy is both protected and marked, which aids research assert the boffins (title link). Aw come on, guys, this is just an excuse to create a pussy that glows in the dark.
