The game of cat and mouse will never seem the same again. Scientists
have created a mutant mouse which has lost its instinctive fear of

potential predator.

The result is a mouse that will happily approach a cat without
showing any of the natural alarm that the rodents normally display
when they catch the tiniest whiff of a feline foe.

eggs under the skin without performing dissections.

"You can see through the skin how organs grow, how cancer starts and
develops," said the lead researcher Masayuki Sumida, professor at the
Institute for Amphibian Biology of state-run Hiroshima University.

"You can watch organs of the same frog over its entire life as you
don't have to dissect it. The researcher can also observe how toxins

But Judy Smith swears that her cat, Kiki, is different, and it is not just because she spent about $7,000 to buy him. Kiki, she says, is hypoallergenic, a cat that does not cause her to sniffle and sneeze and, for that, he is well worth the price tag.
