Why I never stay logged in to eBay when Mister Gato's around

Jack Neal briefly became the proud owner of a pink convertible car after he managed to buy it for 9,000 pounds ($17,000) on the Internet despite being only three years old.

Jack's mother told the BBC she had left her password for the eBay auction site in her computer and her son used the 'buy it now' option to complete the purchase.

I'm always very careful to log out when Gato's near the computer, and this is why. The Chows are totally safe in that they wouldn't even attempt to figure out how to bid, but I don't want a metric ton of smoked salmon showing up at my apartment building.
