Photo of Not a dog tail cactus, but what?

I was given this plant by a co-worker, who didn't know what it was. I have been told variously that it was a dog tail cactus, a monkey's tail cactus and a rat tail cactus. But its flowers don't look like the flowers on any of those cacti. They look more like oxalis flowers. The buds appear, folded up, on thin stems that shoot straight up. As the flower unfolds, the stems bend and droop. The flowers last for weeks. Also, the spines on this plant are not sharp -- they are soft, more like hairs.
