Our poor feline friends

I came across these two articles today:



Follow the first link to see a cat that glows red in the dark.  That's RED.  RED.

Why in the name of all that's good and holy anyone would do that is beyond me.

Follow the second link to see how a company is marketing their line (yes: these are products) of hypoallergenic cats.  What struck me was the very first line from the article:

"Millions of people worldwide are allergic to cats. 
One third of these ignore medical advice and keep at least one cat in their home"

There's a reason why one-third of these millions keep a cat despite allergies.  BECAUSE WE LOVE OUR CATS.  It really disturbs me to see a living being rendered a product.
