Bandai employ feline security guard for Xmas ranges

Published on: 22nd June 2012

The world’s first ever security cat has today taken up her post at Bandai’s warehouse in Southampton.

The bengal cat, Millie, is following in the footsteps of other famous moggie’s, including Larry, the number 10 mouser, and will guard Bandai’s most popular and best-selling toy ranges being delivered ahead of the Christmas rush.

Millie’s owner commented: “Millie has always had a very vigilant personality and doesn’t mind long hours alone. I’m not surprised she took up a career as a security guard; the toys are lucky to have such an attentive guardian.”

Andrew Welch, boys product manager from Bandai, said: “We are expecting a bumper year this Christmas with orders starting to fly in from retailers putting in their requests, including new boys action toy releases for Ben 10 and Power Rangers. With the appointment of Millie the security cat, our toys are now very well protected.”

The collection of toys including Ben 10, Power Rangers and ThunderCats have been placed under security in the Bandai warehouse. With deliveries coming in thick and fast ahead of the stock being shipped to retailers across the country, the toy company felt the need to step up security.
