Snake eyes

Scientists have discovered how to alter human DNA with one animal characteristic (like cat night vision, bloodhound sense of smell) or physical feature (whiskers, fur, striped skin). (A second injection causes the characteristics to fail or cause unpredictable reactions between them.) So far it's perfectly safe and many people are choosing to do it.

What's society like ten years in the future? Write from the point of view of someone who just won a free injection. (Why they didn't choose to before is up to you: wasn't sure, or were too young, or couldn't decide, or ...)
