Ever struggled in vain to find your cat in the dark? Now you need worry no longer -- Korean scientists have developed a cat that glows in the dark. These two Turkish Angola cats were photographed under ultraviolet light. The cat on the left, which is a clone of the right-hand feline, had its genes modified with a florescent protein that gives off a red glow under the special light. Researchers at Gyeongsang National University in Jinju, South Korea, created the glowing kitty by altering a gene that controls skin color.
