Simple device allows one's cat to accept licensing agreements
Constructing a "cardboard platform" to allow your cat to accept online EULA agreements may be ethically questionable, but so are the agreements themselves. (Lacking a cat, one helpful method I've found is to send an e-mail to the corporation indicating that, by reading the message within, they have agreed to absolve you of all commitments, obligations or restrictions in their EULA.)
Still, I like Anne Loucks' solution better. As her cat is not a "legal entity" (the phrase combined with the image of the cat is almost too much), he cannot legally agree to license agreements and thus the agreement is skipped without any harmful agreement to odd, arbitrary terms taking place. Sounds [horrible cat-related pun]!
