Geek Gear?: Glow-In-The-Dark Cats

Okay... this one is weird. Scientists have created a cat that glows in the dark. How? They fused monkey genes into a female cat's egg. The monkey genes just happened to be "tagged" with jellyfish genes for a fluorescent protein. So this thing is some hybrid monkey/cat/jellyfish that's super immune to disease? Does anybody have ANY doubt that when humanity is wiped off the face of the planet it won't be because of nuclear war but because we've breed a superior species or supervirus in some lab somewhere?

Anyway, here's the cat. Bow to your new master.
