Scientists at the University of Tokyo have genetically altered the sense of smell in a mouse to remove the ability of the mouse to sense cats by scent, which is what triggers the instinct of fear.

The end result is a mouse that will work right up to a cat with absolutely no fear.

This could be the origin of Mighty Mouse.
