My cats have RFID chips under the skin in their necks for the purpose
of identification. If they're found and handed in at a police station
or veterinary surgery, then this can be scanned and we'll be contacted.
Presumably the RFID just encodes a unique identifying number, which
would be suitable as an OWL key.

I'm still not sure whether this makes my cats technically bionic. But I
like to think it does.
