Purring USB Cat to stand guard over your PC?

Unusually, this hard-to-believe gadget comes straight out of the Argos catalogue, and not from the good folks at Shiny Shiny.

For a mere £14.95, you too can have a USB Nodding Cat sitting on your desk guarding your PC. From the cursory details provided in the catalogue (which is reproduced on the Argos website) the cat has a IR sensor to detect movement and will trigger your computer to meow at anyone approaching (including you).

Am I alone in suspecting that these cats will be gathering dust on the shelves rather than flying off them?
