Look what the cat dragged in. Few people knew about a British university's cat DNA database until it helped convict a man of manslaughter.

There was an episode of CST (I think) that convicted someone because of the cat or dog hairs they tested. I thought it would be great if we really could do that...we can.
Now the US should start a database for dogs and cats.
