Can your cat compete with this? Cat gets registered and certified as a
New Zealand inspector of sea containers.

(snip)

"My Cat Bolletje" has been issued an interim certificate and online congratulations by the Ministry of Agriculture and Forestry (MAF) for passing its internet biosecurity awareness training course.

(snip)

He said he passed the ministry's online test on behalf of his two-year-old cat in just eight minutes. "My cat's pretty smart and I'm sure it could make a more reliable inspector of sea containers than some of the people that will become accredited online. At least it will go for the chase if it smells a rat," he said.

(snip)

He added that he not think My Cat would have been issued with a formal certificate when the application was processed.

"It looks too frivolous."

2. My old cat had a NRA card
They sent some junk mail to the house for a free membership and I filled out his name.
The card came 3 weeks later. The cat is long since gone but I still have his card.
His name was Frank.
