I'm torn between hilarious and mortifying.

Hilarious because they issued a credit card to your cat.

Mortifying because they issued a credit card to your cat, which sort of reinforces the stereotype of banks and other financial institutions issuing credit indiscriminately to anyone without any concept of creditworthiness / financial responsibility.


Was the cat registered to vote, too?

Apparently, my cat had a much more active social life than I ever imagined.
Hahaha. What the hell kind of scam was going on there?

How is "The Adventures of Killa Leete" not a sitcom yet? I'd watch it.

I'm so scared.

My question is: if you raked up tons of CC debt with teh card, who's credit would it affect?

You can get cards added onto your account with whosoever name you want.

This reminds me of the story of Sal Esposito, the cat who was summoned for jury duty in Boston in 2010. The court rejected the owner's request for disqualification (on the grounds that Sal could not speak or understand English), despite an attached letter from the vet stating that Sal was not, in fact, human. Apparently they actually had to show up in court with the cat.

That's the reason I cancelled the card. I was afraid it'd get some charge put on it, and I'd be responsible. No idea if I'd be liable, but it wasn't worth the risk.

At one point I contemplated buying something expensive, and then claiming it wasn't me, I didn't owe anything, etc. I chickened out.

It'd only work if you bought the world's biggest cat tower.

I remember seeing pics (coulda been the pic thread) where someone had installed catwalks from room to room. They were up near the ceiling, and there were portholes so the cats could go all over without touching the floor. That was cool, but the tower/castle thing above is just plain obscene.

Just increased my credit limit from $700 to $5,000 on my credit card. This will allow me to utilize less 20% if I put all my charges on it now. Before, It was getting 75 to 80% usage. Now time to play the waiting game and pick up a Discover card.

Watching the debate.

Why do people insist on the 14% tax argument. Is it me or people are incapable of doing simple math?

Nope. Interest rate is 14.5%. No perks either. It started out as a student credit card. No annual fee though.

I'll get perks with the discover card when I get it.


Oh and, screw you!

Me and credit cards are the fail. I got a $4000 card about 2 months ago and couldn't resist going on a shopping spree. Maxed I thought I would be able to resist and just use it to maybe 25%. And I have 3 others, even more fail. Too many cards, too much % used = shitty impact on credit score.

But you're too cheap to actually spend any money, so you might as well use them for smoothing body filler on your car.

I'm struggling with the concept of a Miata being locked in the first place.
