Cat gets credit card
Australian bank issues credit card to cat - Yahoo! News UK: SYDNEY (Reuters) - An Australian bank has apologised for issuing a credit card to a cat after its owner decided to test the bank's identity security system.
The Bank of Queensland issued a credit card to Messiah the cat when his owner Katherine Campbell applied for a secondary card on her account under its name.
'I just couldn't believe it. People need to be aware of this and banks need to have better security,' Campbell told local media on Thursday.
The bank said the cat's card had been cancelled. 'We apologise as this should not have happened,' it said in a statement.
If banks can issue press releases, why can't a cat have a credit card? How else are we going to pay for our peacock feathers and our ahi tuna rations?
On second thought, maybe we shouldn't tell Darcy about this.
