Workers at the Bandai factory in Southampton, England, have found the purr-fect solution to their security needs: Millie, the Bengal cat.

As the factory starts receiving shipments of what will be this Christmas’s most wanted toys, employees thought it best to add an additional security measure. Millie caught their attention while roaming around the warehouse, and was immediately deemed the best possible new hire as a result of her excellent climbing and hearing abilities and telltale meow.

“Millie has always had a very vigilant personality,” said her owner. “I’m not surprised she took up a career as a security guard. The toys are lucky to have such an attentive guardian.”

For her efforts, Millie will be paid in catfood and fish, in addition to having a pet care clause woven into her contract. But her needs are more than happily met by her overjoyed bosses.

“With the appointment of Millie the security cat, our toys are now very well protected,” a Bandai spokesperson said.
