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."
