Feline Shopping Spree Ends in Disaster

By Dave Fox
Seattle, Washingon

An Australian bank has cancelled one customer’s credit card after discovering the customer is… ahem… a cat.

The Bank of Queensland issued a Visa card with a credit limit of 4,200 Australian dollars to a cat named Messiah. Messiah’s owner applied for the card to test the bank’s security system, according to the Melbourne Herald Sun. The credit card application included, among other things, the cat’s age. Messiah is two years old.

The bank issued a statement apologizing for the oversight and promptly cancelled Messiah’s credit card.

Messiah, upon hearing that his potential fish market shopping spree had been brought to a screeching halt, marched straight to the bank and peed on the carpet.

    Doesn’t seem any more stupid than giving me a credit card.., and credits on all of my three accounts…
    I really should go to the bank and pee on their carpet!

    I peed on your carpet the last time I stayed at your place. But don’t worry. You were asleep. You didn’t notice a thing.

    Well, I puked in your suitcase. You must have been really drunk since you didn’t notice…

    Ummm, Brrre… You’ve never been to America. And I don’t have a staircase.
    Who must have been very drunk?

    Oh, crap, he did say suitcase. That’s what I get for blogging before I’m awake.

    Is “suitcase” a funny Norwegian spelling for staircase?

    Dave, I’m quoting: “That’s what I get for blogging before I’m awake.” You shouldn’t tell lies.
    There is no need for doing that. Writers are supposed to get drunk quite frequently!
