    i agree, leave the animals to their normal natural state. Why do we humans always insist on messing with other animals and shit. I think its really fucked up.

    Human rights leave us but this as alternative field experimenting, so in the name of medical science, it truly is everything but wrong. I frankly would be scared to live in a world with so many strains of various things, if we had no alternative test subjects....
    And don't burn me for saying this, I'm not exactly justifying this as a means to an end, but consider the option of dismissing it entirely...that would be chaos

    Would you rather have glowing humans? Now that would be a sight

    :laugh:

    I'd buy a cat if they made it with a bioluminescent gene - no external lighting necessary.

    Then I'd never accidentally kick the cat in the middle of the night again.

    I'm all for medical research but this is a lil creepy. I definetly think they shouldn't be advertising it like this, makes you wonder how bad things really are behind the scenes.

    The way i see it with stuff like this is, if you don't like it, then volunteer to have the resaerch done on you.

    I have no problem with medical research done on animals, i do have a problem with cosmetic research done on animals though.

    lol In my case I stepped on the tail or paw at night because my cat has a habit of lying down in front of my bedroom's door, but now whenever I have to wake at night I use a flashlight.

    I think you would have to go back before you existed, and was still a glint in your fathers eye.

    I would like a glow-in-the-dark potion for my cat, and an invisible potion for myself, please :)

    The invisible part, something to this effect:
