    Because my dad hated junk mail, he occasionally ordered things in the name of my cat, “Max”.

    Well, computer databases being what they are, credit agencies thought Max was a human and somehow smooshed my dad’s income and mine and assigned it to Max for his credit history. A friend checked it when I was buying a car and said Max could have bought any car on the lot
    – he had a stellar rating.

    I could NOT get Max out of the databases, because only Max could correct errors in his files … despit his being a cat who had never worked a day in his life.
