From AFP:

South Korean scientists have cloned cats by manipulating a fluorescent protein gene, a procedure which could help develop treatments for human genetic diseases, officials said Wednesday.

In a side-effect, the cloned cats glow in the dark when exposed to ultraviolet beams.


Wait, wait.... WHAT?!

I don't care if these experiments may eventually cure human diseases. Making glow-in-the-dark cats? You just don't do that!
